EDUCATION IS KEY
With all of the security products on the market, malicious emails will still get through and employees will still click links they shouldn’t. These dangerous emails can often look legitimate, but implementing user awareness security training enables employees to better recognize what is real and what is actually a phishing attempt. CMA recommends implementing user awareness training to keep your business safe.
Training benefits employees both professionally and personally. Threats don’t just come in through business email accounts. Often, there are phishing attempts through personal email accounts asking for banking information or other personal data. Implementing user awareness security training will help your employees recognize threats, both professionally and personally. Just one employee clicking on a malicious email can cost your business thousands of dollars. Attacks can result in loss of data, sales and productivity. Requiring your employees to go through user awareness security training can save your business both time and money.
