Ransomware, CEO Fraud, Compliance, Phishing, and other exploits that hackers use are why your business needs New-School Security Awareness Training.
Cybercrime is moving at light speed. A few years ago, cybercriminals used to specialize in identity theft, but now they are trying to take over your organization’s network, hack into your bank accounts, and steal tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Did you know that over 90% of all cyber attacks originate with an end user who, unaware of the risk, clicks on a malicious link, or opens a malicious attachment in an e-mail? In other words, your employees represent your largest risk for cyber attacks, by a factor of 10 to 1.
Every small and medium organization is at risk. Your users are your last line of defense. They need to be trained and remain on their toes with security top of mind.
What’s Wrong With Every-Day Security Awareness Training?
Old-School Security Awareness Training doesn’t hack it anymore (no pun intended). Today, your employees are frequently exposed to sophisticated and ever-changing phishing and ransomware attack methods.
Old-School Security Awareness Training is static. It’s a one-time event without follow-up. You need cybersecurity training, that is backed up with phishing tests, performed on a regular basis in order to really create a change in behavior.
What Is New-School Security Awareness Training?
More than ever, your users are the weak link in your network security. You need highly effective and frequent cybersecurity training, along with random Phishing Security Tests that provide several remedial options in case an employee falls for a simulated phishing attack.
With Discovery I.T.’s world-class, user-friendly New-School Security Awareness Training, you’ll have training self-service enrollment, training completion logs, and both pre-and post-training phishing security tests that show you who is/isn’t completing prescribed training, as well as the percentage of your end users that are Phish-prone.
And with our end-user training interface, your users get a fresh new learner experience that makes learning fun and engaging. It has optional customization features to enable “gamification” of training, so your users can compete against their peers on leaderboards and earn badges while learning how to keep your organization safe from cyber attacks.

Don’t Be The Next Cyber-Heist Victim
Changing employee behavior to be less susceptible to social engineering requires a consistent and repeatable approach to security education. Security awareness training done right engages users and moves their natural “reflexes” from being unaware to being proactive and competent in identifying potentially hazardous social engineering tactics.
Rolling out a realistic security awareness training program will empower your users to protect themselves and be part of the solution in fortifying your organization’s last layer of security.
