Reduce Your Cyber Risks by 70% with Cyber Awareness Training
85% of Breaches Involve the Human Element
It’s easy to think you can improve your cybersecurity simply by using a firewall, installing anti-virus software, securing networks, and regularly updating your systems. An overlooked area, however, is cyber awareness training. Why?
Verizon recently released its Data Breach Investigations Report. Its findings? More than 85% of data breaches involve a human element. Another joint study mirrors that finding citing 88% of breach incidents owing to employee mistakes. It’s little wonder social engineering attacks continue to rise:
Make no mistake. Cybercriminals recognize that employees are the weak link in a company’s cybersecurity. Cyber awareness training creates an initial line of defense against cyber-attacks.
How Our Cyber Awareness Training Can Help
According to studies by the Aberdeen Group, companies can reduce security-related risks by 70% through cyber awareness training. It’s a cost-effective way to reduce your exposure substantially.
That said, only 45% of companies provide formal cyber awareness training (Mimecast). Even worse, only 10% of companies have training programs available. Ongoing training is the best way to ensure your employees adopt a culture where cyber awareness is at the forefront.

Improving Awareness Reduces Your Risk
A recent study reported that 28% of employees lack confidence in identifying a phishing email. Not surprisingly, 25% of workers revealed they clicked on a phishing email at work.
