Unfortunately, it’s now fact that old-school security awareness training never really hacked it. Herding your staff into a meeting room, then keeping them awake with coffee and biscuits whilst subjecting them to a dull as dishwater death-by-PowerPoint presentation gave traditional security awareness training a very bad rap and achieved extraordinarily little security benefits.
However, with that being said, the volume of security threats has exploded over the past 24 months and your employees are still the last line of defence and often the weakest link in your company’s security defences.
IT professionals often use a term “Human Firewall”. This is not some kind of next generation cyborg sent from the future to protect your business. The Human Firewall refers to the security awareness acumen of your staff and what digital decisions they make as humans.
Akin to traditional antivirus on your computer the Human Firewall is only as good as its last security update. We do not update our computers Anti-Virus once every 5 years, so why do we treat our last line of defence, and our weakest link this way?
Honestly answer this question – When did you last update your Human Firewalls?
The bad guys, cyber criminals AKA “Threat Actors”, are now actively focusing on your employees or “non-patched Human Firewalls” which means continuous managed security awareness training is now necessary for every employee in every modern business.
Tycom have partnered with a security specialist firm that serves tens of thousands of customers globally to provide you with an industry leading managed platform to better mitigate the urgent IT security problems of social engineering, fraud, spear phishing and ransomware attacks.
Tycom Ubiquity Managed Security Awareness Training & Simulated Phishing Service is a form of new-school interactive continuous education that seeks to equip members of an organisation with the information they need to keep their Human Firewall up to date to. In doing so, your employees can protect themselves and the firm’s digital assets, financials and reputation from loss or harm.
- 2021 Security Industry analysis of 6.6 million computer users continues to uncover alarming results. The data shows a troubling 31.4% of Human firewalls are un-patched.
- Fortunately, the data showed that this 31.4% can be brought down to 16.4% within 90 days after deploying our new-school security awareness training.
- The One-Year results show that by following these best practices and adopting Managed Tycom Security Awareness the final percentage can be minimised to 4.8% on average.
