The NUMBER ONE cause of data loss and cyber breaches may surprise you. No, it’s not the hacker looking for an open port to your network, or the Rogers guy with the surly attitude. It’s actually your very own employees who put your business most at risk. If just one employee accidentally clicks a link or provides confidential information in response to a phishing email, then your entire business, and all of your data, could be exposed. Or worse, a hacker might use that information to drain your bank account.
Ensuring your company is secure against cybercrime and hackers is imperative to the success of your business, but all the security in the world means nothing if your employees don’t know how to spot and avoid cyberattacks.
That’s why Connectability offers cybersecurity training for your team. One thing we’ve learned in our 25 years in business is: SOMEONE WILL CLICK ON EVERYTHING. We will show your team how to spot phishing scams and teach them common signs of a malicious email. We will also show you what to do when you don’t recognize the sender of an email, what websites your employees should and shouldn’t navigate to, and in general, how to be more mindful of security when using computers.
We’ll also sit down with management and help develop an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) that dictates what is and isn’t an acceptable use of technology in your business. By the end of training, you and the rest of your team will be versed in what needs to be done to protect your critical company data. Regardless, we recommend that you and your employees go through regular cyber security training. Threats change fast, so you always want to make sure that you and your team are up to date. You know what they say, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
