Why employees need security awareness training

Great, you’ve invested in the first line of defence to reduce your business of cyber attack and security breaches. You have all the technical components in place:

  • Intrusion detection systems
  • Multi-factor authentication systems
  • Firewalls
  • Encryption
  • Up-to-date security patches

What about the non-technical components?

What will stop your employee from opening a link to unleash a virus, wiping out 4 days of data? What about the team member in accounts who unknowingly changes the bank details of an employee, only to find they’ve lost $10k of pay? How can the purchasing team member deposit $70k into a supplier’s account and not lose sleep that they had been caught out by a dodgy scam?


We’ve spent millions of dollars to put borders up around our perimeters, we’ve put firewalls, we’ve put intrusion detections…

There are three types of email migrations that can be made from an Exchange Server:

  • Setting clear use policies
  • Staff education and security awareness training
  • Effective leadership in place to enforce security policy and enforcement across the enterprise.

Prevention is better than cure.
More than ever, end-users are the weak link in your network security.

Employees need security awareness training as to avoid potential threats
such as spam, phishing, malware and ransomware as they perform their day-to-day work.
