It’s your data. Do your employees know how to protect it?

How to Identify phishing emails and websites

Not to send PII – Personally identifiable information (SSN, credit card, driver’s license, etc.) in emails

How to protect portable media

The importance of creating strong passwords

Not to share their passwords

The dangers of posting PII on social media

About the risks of using their personal devices with company data

Common sense, right?  You’ll be surprised how many employees don’t know or practice these simple procedures.
95% of all breaches are caused by human error – meaning companies need more to protect themselves then firewalls and antivirus.

Employees are your number #1 security risk!

Employee Security Training

It is critical to ensure that employees understand the risks to sensitive information and the threat of data breaches. Phishing and ransomware are leading methods of attacks. Employees need to know how to spot phishing emails, phishing websites and the dangers of email attachments. Training needs to take into account the dangers of hacking, stolen mobile devices, posting sensitive information on social media and other causes of data breaches. A good training program will continually remind employees about the dangers of data breaches and how to avoid becoming a victim. Cybercriminals are developing new scams and attacks everyday and employees should be made aware of these scams.

Our Training Program can help get your employees trained and educated on how to protect your data.

Ransomware is a real threat to all businesses

Ransomware is a method of holding data hostage until a ransom or payment has been made to release the data. Ransomware is usually associated with fake emails called phishing emails that contain malicious attachments such as Microsoft Word documents or PDF files. Once these attachments are opened, a program locks or encrypts all the data on the workstation. Ransomware can spread to other workstations and servers on the network.
Criminals are targeting healthcare organizations, law firms, financial service organizations and all businesses that have valuable data that they can’t afford to lose. These criminals realize that it is easier to hold a company’s data hostage than it is to steal the data and use it. The risk of being caught spreading ransomware is much lower than traditional hacking or cybercrime.
Hospitals, law firms and many other organizations have been shut down for weeks as a result of successful ransomware attacks that have encrypted the entire network and made access to company data and systems impossible.
