End User Cyber Security Awareness

“The user is the businesses last line of defence in an attack and is the greatest vulnerability in the security chain.” Neil Beulecke

“The roots of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet.” Aristotle

End users are becoming the largest security risk in organisations today. Through no fault of their own, and mostly due to a lack of awareness and business ICT policy, employees can inadvertently open the virtual gates to attackers.  It is imperative that organisations make a significant effort to focus on user education and awareness to reduce these occurrences and enhance their risk mitigation.  With the rise in cybercrime as well as the increase in BYOD, it is more important than ever to fully educate employees about security attacks and how they can proactively contribute to the cybersecurity of the organisation.

Focus:

  • Induction Training
  • Awareness Campaigns
  • Measure Human Safety and Security Posture
  • Policy Development
  • Procedure Development
