Security Awareness Training

Small businesses face a challenging situation. Owners usually find they do not have enough finances to invest in robust security systems. Resources are limited, and the size of their IT department is not equivalent to that of bigger organizations. Fortunately, establishing a culture of security awareness lies within your reach.
Security awareness training is essential to small businesses for preventing a variety of non-technical and technical breaches. By ensuring personnel is well-schooled on managing security from bottom up, small companies can maintain the confidentiality of their most valuable assets.

Main benefits:

  • Client Trust – Consumers are getting skeptical about the companies’ promise regarding the safety of their data. They are overwhelmed by the frequent appearance of data breach headlines. Security awareness training motivates employees to do everything possible to protect customers’ PII (personally identifiable information).
  • Cost Reduction – Kaspersky Lab’s survey revealed that small businesses need to spend $38,000 on average to recover from a data breach, and the cost is even higher if the reputation damage and indirect costs are accounted for. Security awareness training ensures the company is prepared to prevent such instances; think of it as an investment that results in significant savings down the line.
  • Regulatory Compliance – Regulations like Sarbanes-Oxley and PCI know that humans are the weakest link in information security. Security awareness training ensures full compliance with such regulations.
