Always on, bringing you new ways to expand your cyber skills. Fill out the form below to register for our first Cyber Security Awareness Bootcamp.
With cyber crime on the rise (Check Point has reported a 32% growth in cyber attacks between 2021 and 2022, and Cybersecurity Ventures predicts cyber crime costs will grow by 15% per year over the next five years), cyber security awareness training is an important component of any organisation’s cyber security strategy. That’s because although your employees are one of your greatest assets, they can also be your number one cyber risk. According to Kevin Mitnick, security consultant and former hacker,
“Companies spend millions of dollars on firewalls, encryption, and secure access devices and it’s money wasted because none of these measures address the weakest link in the security chain: the people who use, administer, operate and account for computer systems that contain protected information.”
People who are unaware of common cyber security risks are more likely to disregard relevant policies and procedures, which could result in unintentional data disclosures or successful cyber attacks. However, employees who are cyber aware can quickly identify these threats, lowering the risk of cyber security incidents and preventing data breaches.
At Secon, we bring industry knowledge and people together to help businesses reduce their cyber risk. So, for Cyber Security Awareness Month, we’re delighted to announce we’ll be delivering a cyber security fundamentals bootcamp to help introduce the basics of cyber security awareness to your team.
In each bootcamp session, our team of experts will walk you through four critical areas of cyber risk and teach you how to practice cyber awareness in your daily routine. The bootcamp sessions will be offered on-demand from Monday each week in October and if you watch all four presentations, you’ll receive a certificate of completion from Secon.
As this is a special, condensed version of the cyber security awareness trainings we offer to clients, this bootcamp will be restricted to a limited number of registrants for Cyber Security Awareness Month. If you’d like join, please register today to secure your place.
