A significant number of breaches start with a social engineering attack that persuades someone to click a link in an email, visit a website that is compromised, or provide information over the phone. Social engineers are con men. They acquire sensitive information or inappropriate access privileges by building a trusted relationship with their target.
People are trusting by nature and have an inborn desire to be helpful. Social Engineers exploit these common human characteristics to achieve their goals. One of the best defenses you can build as a company is a workforce that understands the fundamentals of cybersecurity, so that they can make everyday choices to promote it.
Whether you’re looking to give your staff concise, practical training that will help them implement best practices and follow company policy, or to simply increase the cybersecurity awareness of your employees or client base, your company can benefit from one of Sage’s targeted training sessions.
We tailor the presentation specifically to your personnel, with particular emphasis on company policy and the relevant cybersecurity controls designed to prevent unauthorized disclosure and minimize risky behavior.
While a minimum of 45 minutes is required for the presentation, a 90-minute session is recommended to allow sufficient time for demonstrations and Q&A.
Sage can also develop course material to support your organization’s cybersecurity training initiatives.
There is no single, straight path that will get you to the point where you can say, “We did it! We’re 100% cyber-secure.”
A more realistic destination is cyber resiliency – the ability to prepare for and adapt to changing conditions, so you can withstand and recover rapidly from disruptions. Achieving cyber resilience depends on what we like to call the cybersecurity lifecycle – an ongoing cycle of interconnected elements that compliment and reinforce one another.
