Cybersecurity Training

Cybersecurity awareness is the combination of knowledge and behaviors that help employees understand the risks associated with cyber activity and how to combat threats to sensitive information.

Even for the most secure networks, employees are gatekeepers to intellectual property and private data. Without training, employees are an easy target of cyber criminals.

A security awareness program trains user on the potential threats their organizations face and how to avoid situations that can put sensitive data at risk. With the rise of remote employees, it’s even more crucial employees are properly trained on how to protect sensitive company information while at home.

Following annual training, Alterity can periodically test employees on their cybersecurity knowledge.
