Without training, it is difficult for employees to tell the difference between a legitimate email and a phishing email. The unfortunate truth is that over ninety percent of cyberattacks start with a phishing email. When phishing testing isn't implemented, it's impossible for you to know how widespread the problem is in your organization.
Because human error is one of the leading causes of data breaches, you must approach the problem with a two prong solution: testing and training.
Phishing Scam Testing
To see how vulnerable your organization is, you must first test your employees to see what level of cyber-awareness they have in detecting phishing emails and if they know what to do when or if they encounter a suspicious email. In addition, you must conduct a Vulnerability Scan of your
IT Network. This would cause you to have to search the dark web in order to find out if your login IDs and passwords have already been compromised.
Our employees are trained to conduct phishing tests that provide you the information you need to establish, implement, and manage the best practices for preventing phishing email events.
At Elevated Cyber Security, we are aware that some of your employees may display slight anxiety about being tested. In order to keep your employees from feeling apprehensive, our staff handles the testing task with a development-focused professional demeanor that promotes growth in your employees' skills sets. Our goal is to equip your employees with the tools they need to be efficient cyberdanger-slaying employees.
Phishing Scam Training
In the second step, we will help you to establish suspicious email policies and procedures that empower your employees to act when they receive a fraudulent email. To be aware of internet dangers is one thing but to have your employees know how to respond to such dangers gives your business a huge leg-up in data security.
A robust cybersecurity awareness training program is essential to maintaining the safety and security of a company's internal network. When employees know what to look for and what to do when they receive a fake email, they will not solely feel empowered. They will feel like heroes.
We will then train employees to recognize threats and become a human firewall.
