It’s a simple fact that the majority of security compromises in organisations involve human error. So in today’s ‘always on’ workforce the need to inform, influence and educate employees has never been greater. Through education and ethical testing of employee behaviours comes a reduction of risk, and that is where QA Cyber Essentials for End Users training really delivers. We are experts at engaging staff through education, so they can convert learning experiences into tangible actions and new behaviours.
Core components of the Cyber Essentials for End Users package:
- Ethical Phishing Assessment
Our phishing platform will assess how well employees are able to respond to a phishing attack. It takes an educated and watchful eye to recognise a malicious email. This service will train staff to recognise phishing emails and help them to take appropriate actions when receiving suspicious emails. By sending staff phishing emails using the same techniques that attackers use.
Typically, the first round of phishing emails are completely anonymous, the user will be presented with a blank web page (typical ‘page cannot be found’ error) so as not to raise any suspicions while the initial assessment takes place. During the subsequent phishing assessments (no limit), when someone clicks on a suspicious link or attachment, we are able to capture the need for individual or wider departmental training interventions.
- Security Awareness Digital E-Learning
QA, has an Information Security awareness digital e-learning course, developed in conjunction with QA security subject matter experts and validated by client organisations. It is a 40 minute, awareness course for end users, built around the principles of ISO27001, which provides an awareness of why information security is important, and highlights the actions required to handle information responsibly and safely inside and outside of work. The content is licenced per annum at no extra cost, enabling new staff and contractors to take the course when they join the business.
