No matter the business’ size, its users are heavily targeted by attackers, who know that a single successful phishing email could mean access to everything on the corporate network and more. Today, a 100-employee business faces just as much cybersecurity risk as a 20,000-employee enterprise.
Criminals might aim for long-term infiltration and theft from the network; or attempt to scam the user and business out of data or money; or steal the user’s credentials to access different parts of the network. They might also attempt to turn an end user’s machine into a zombie as part of a botnet or spam relay, or to mine cryptocurrency. The list is only getting longer.
The bottom line: in today’s threat landscape, end users need regular and consistent cyber-awareness training to empower them to become a business’ first line of defense, not its weakest link.
Security Awareness Training provides the continuous, relevant and measurable cybersecurity education businesses need to minimize user error that result in security breaches and losses. Because it’s an integrated part of the small to medium-sized business (SMB) platform, Security Awareness Training is easy to administer and delivers measurable results. And because all training products are powered by real-time, global threat intelligence, Security Awareness Training customers can rest assured that courses an training are up-to-date and relevant.
Tailored Training for Your Business
Unlike other training providers, we focus on the training needs of small to medium-sized business. These customers don’t always have the resources to administer security awareness training, and cost is another important factor to consider. That’s why we provide a solution that’s easy to use, automated, and won’t break the bank.
Our Security Awareness Training is a fully cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering, and is available via the same console admins use to manage our Endpoint Protection and DNS Protection solutions.
Easy to Use and Operate
Our Security Awareness Training provides an easy 5-step setup wizard to help you create phishing simulations and training campaigns. In just a few minutes, you can name a campaign, choose the desired recipients, create or select a training email template, choose the training module, and launch.
New capabilities let you put multiple activities together to run over a specific time period. You can also plan and execute training programs across multiple clients at a global level. Reminders, randomization, scheduled training, and automated results reporting all make it simple and straightforward to implement a fully accountable and continuous security awareness program.
What Results To Expect
A study by the Ponemon Institute on the value of employee training showed that businesses who roll out security awareness training programs see improvements of between 26% and 99% in their phishing email click rates, with an average improvement of a 64%.
During the first 6 months of usage, Security Awareness Training customers have seen these results:
Phishing click-through rates drop from a 37% average to 12% in 6 months
Results are doubly effective if users leverage both phishing simulations and training, rather than simulations alone
The more training courses, you run the better the results. Running 1-5 courses over 1-2 months showed a 37% average click rate. But 6-10 courses over 3-4 months showed a 28% click rate, and 11+ plus courses over 4-6 months showed a 13% click rate. That training impact over a year means the average click rate goes from 37% down to 5%, which is an 86.5% improvement.
Think about the number of user errors and resulting security incidents you see each year. Then think about the subsequent productivity losses and man hours required for remediation and recovery. Now factor in any applicable regulatory fines, as well as loss of customer trust and reputation. Being able to stop 86% of those incidents could mean the difference between thriving and going out of business.
