Despite the fact that the majority of data breaches are caused by human error, many organizations have not been training their employees on cybersecurity, according to a recent report. One company is trying to change that.
30 percent of participants polled by ESET® indicated that they have never received cybersecurity training or education at work. ESET recently launched free cybersecurity training for businesses to help address the matter.
“It was concerning to hear about stories from our customers, like an IT manager who had to choose to either outfit their office with new printers, or buy cybersecurity training videos,” said Andrew Lee, CEO of ESET North America. “We thought that was ridiculous, and wanted to do something about it.”
“Whether you’re a CEO of a small business, an IT manager, or even an office manager tasked with security, really anyone can use and benefit from our free training,” said Lee.
The training modules, which are presented in user-friendly language and can be completed in fewer than 90 minutes, cover a variety of topics, including how to spot phishing e-mails, password best practices, social engineering, two-factor authentication, and Internet of Things security.
