Education and Cybersecurity Training for Well-Informed Employees
Did you know that one of the biggest security weaknesses in your Las Vegas company is your staff?
Of course, it goes without saying that your staff is undoubtedly made up of excellent employees who work hard and want nothing more than to maintain the security and protection of your business. At the same time, there are a number of ways that cybercriminals target businesses, and one of their favorite tactics is to go through company employees.
Network Security Associates can help protect your business from employee-caused security breaches by training your employees with our comprehensive security training programs.
Protect Your Business From Phishing Scams With Cybersecurity Training
Phishing scams are more prevalent than ever before, and unfortunately, they have a relatively high success rate for the cybercriminals who instigate them.
Phishing is a type of scam that is most often carried out through email. In all probability, you have received a phishing email at least once before.
A phishing email appears legitimate. For example, it might look like it’s from a friend or coworker. Inevitably, somewhere in the message, however, is a malicious link or download, disguised as a legitimate link or download. If the recipient clicks on this trap, it’s an instant gateway for malware (malicious software) to be downloaded onto the email recipient’s computer, usually spreading like wildfire to whatever systems and networks that computer is linked to.
Teach Your Employees How to Spot Phishing Emails and Other Scams With Cybersecurity Training
As you can see, it’s all too easy to fall for a phishing scam. Well-meaning employees around the nation fall for them all the time. Sadly, this can lead to security breaches — often involving ransomware — that can end up costing organizations up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. It can also put businesses entirely.
The only way to avoid your employees falling for phishing scams or missing other markers of obvious security breaches is to teach them to know what to look for. Fortunately, you can teach your employees to know what to look for with proper cybersecurity training by our staff at NSA.
