Batten down the hatches: The importance of employee security training

Phishing via email remains the number one attack vector for bad actors seeking to compromise your network, posing an ever-increasing threat to your organisation's security.

Phishing is a deceptive tactic where cybercriminals impersonate your trusted contacts e.g., your colleagues, to trick you into revealing sensitive information such as passwords or financial details.

With an estimated 3.4 billion phishing emails sent daily, the sophistication of these attacks continues to escalate, making them increasingly difficult to identify. 

Currently, most of the training available for recognising even the most basic of security threats is limited. Traditional methods for identifying suspicious emails, such as asking ‘Is this someone I know?’, are no longer effective. This is particularly relevant to supply chain attacks, where the malicious email appears to originate from a person with whom the user interacts within the network of their supply chain e.g., their bank.

The average number of supply chain attacks increased by 26% from 2022 to 2023 and that figure is expected to grow year on year. 

If your staff aren’t trained to recognise phishing emails, chances are that they will eventually slip up, leading to catastrophic consequences for your business. 

Hence, the importance of equipping your employees with robust security awareness training. In fact, it’s not only important, but it’s necessary in today’s security landscape.

This will provide them with the education required to differentiate malicious emails from safe ones and the awareness to follow the correct procedures to handle these phishing attempts.

Our revolutionary security training platform delivers five key areas of security training to your employees:

Automated AI-driven phishing simulations

Test your staff’s ability to recognise phishing attempts with realistic malicious emails that are auto-tailored to your business without the effort of manually drafting and sending them yourself.

Active reporting at the click of a button

Staff can use the ‘Report’ feature to flag any emails they deem to be suspicious - whether they’re sent as part of the security training or as a genuine phishing attempt it will be flagged to upper management and the system will investigate and provide relevant information in return.

Training sessions and progress indicators and benchmarks

Staff can undertake bitesize cyber security training sessions and track their progress within their academic dashboard.

Cyber hygiene practices

Employees will be provided with helpful tips on cyber hygiene best practices such as securing their apps and devices. 

Real-time threat alerts 

Your team can be notified of any genuine ongoing security threats to watch out for.

For management, our platform offers a centralized dashboard to monitor company-wide data, including successful reports, email opens, link clicks, and credential entries, facilitating informed risk management decisions.

Take it from us, investing in worthwhile staff security awareness training will not only help to protect your business from cyber-attacks, but it’ll save you valuable time, money and not to mention, your business’ reputation.
