Security Awareness Training Products
80% of all cyber security breaches happen as a result of Human Error.
Humans are the frontline of defence for Cyber Security, you can’t replace human intuition and insight.
Every organisation needs to have a strong cybersecurity awareness program to ensure that this first line of defence is prepared to mitigate cyber breaches should they happen!
What is Security Awareness?
It is the process of making people aware of risks to the things they value, and how they can safeguard against those risks.
SoftGen is teaming with Layer 8 Security, an Australian company based in Brisbane and our long-term End Point Security partner VIPRE to offer a complete suite of Cyber Security Awareness Programs that leverage progressive training techniques to effectively improve human response against cyber-attacks.
Both of these vendors offer comprehensive training solutions to fit your requirements based on your staff’s current awareness of cyber security by the use of simulated phishing exercises aimed at measuring staff response and awareness.
However each vendor offers a different approach with Layer 8 offering a more Interactive solution whilst VIPRE offers a more traditional on-line training packages.
These vendors training programs also met the following essential criteria for a successful training program:
• Is the content relevant?
• Are the course materials easy to understand?
• Does it empower employees and staff?
• Is it fun?
The biggest hurdle in increasing security posture is the level of awareness and behaviour of people. Most training rolls through blurbs of boring content, yawn worthy presentations and quite frankly are forgotten just about as quickly as they’re delivered.
Layer 8 Security have designed their training to engage people, make it actually relevant and interesting and memorable.
Australia’s first Online Cyber Escape Room are designed to deliver participants a sound understanding of good cyber security principals, why they’re important, what to pay attention to in different scenarios and to retain that knowledge. They get people thinking – all while actually having fun - There are multiple cyber security escape rooms to choose – from the isolation of outer space to the depths of the catacombs.
Interactive cyber security awareness training methods help users absorb and appropriately recall the knowledge and tactics necessary to be aware of the methods used by cyber criminals and then subsequently, avoid the attack - A virtual session could help mitigate significant Cyber Risk.
A majority of their programs are undertaken online and focus on short & fun learning experiences to ensure that a short course achieves the maximum benefits for their customers. It’s important to remember all the programs can be customized around an organisation’s specific staff and security needs.
