You understand that human behavior plays a huge part in the security posture of your company and that each employee plays an important role in security. So you've decided to go ahead and purchase a Security Training Awareness Solution. However, before you gain access to a vast selection of security awareness courses you must have a plan and know where to begin when it comes to selecting a course cadence.
Deploying a security awareness training can be overwhelming. There's a lot of factors to weigh in your decision. The first two important decisions that must be made is which courses to deploy and at what cadence. Visit our S.H.I.E.L.D. training catalog to see what security awareness training topics we offer with our platform solutions. Here at TechGuard, we have had the opportunity to deploy hundreds of trainings over the past year. Here is what we learned: our customers tend to start with these 5 Single Course Topics. These topics are common issues that companies internationally are working hard to address. Be sure to click on the links below to read additional blogs on each topic.
Although these are currently the most popularly being deployed, where you need to start may differ based on your specific needs and current security posture. In order to assess your employees' current security awareness strengths and weaknesses, test them. There's a few ways you may do this. Offer a general quiz to gauge your employees security awareness level or a questionnaire to determine how they would respond to various situations. The best way to really engage them and to test their knowledge is to try a real-world test on them. We invite companies to try out our phishing simulator for free to see just how easy it is to use.
