What Is Digital Security Awareness Training?

Security awareness training educates employees to the digital threats they will face while doing their daily tasks - from simple email attachments to sophisticated phone scams. By making employees aware of the lengths cyber criminals go to gain access to sensitive data businesses can avoid breaches that can have catastrophic long term effects.

Having all your staff members undertake cybersecurity awareness training teaches them how to spot viruses before they’re downloaded to your systems, identify phishing and other digital scams, spot malware, report incidents to help safeguard co-workers, and follow IT best practices and your company’s data protection policies. 

Awareness training also educates employees to adhere to UK data privacy laws including General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Why Awareness Training Is Important For Your Business

As your business expands its IT infrastructure the more it’s at risk to cyberattacks and data breaches. Hackers especially like to target smaller businesses whose digital security budgets are lower than larger corporations. Having employees knowledgeable these digital threats is important in keeping your business operational and in compliance with UK data laws. 

95% of cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error. This makes a lack of employee digital security knowhow the chink in your cybersecurity armour. Security awareness training prevents cyber criminals from targeting this weak spot - keeping all the data you store within your IT systems safe.
