Cybersecurity is everyone’s job – “together” is the best way to stay protected. Cybercrime is the #1 risk companies face, but there are proven and easy techniques to prevent it.

Since 2004, the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) has sponsored Cybersecurity Awareness Month each October to promote online safety for both consumers and businesses. Cofense is proud to be on the Board of Directors, so each year, we do our part to promote security awareness throughout the month.

As part of our effort to spread awareness, we created a new and enhanced free toolkit with 3 award winning security awareness training modules to help support your cybersecurity education program. For additional information, check out the NCA resource library to learn more about how to identify potential threats and stay safe online.

Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart

Cybersecurity Awareness Month Webinar

Did you know that the Committee for Economic Development reported that an estimated 94 percent of businesses larger than 100 employees experienced a cyberattack in 2022 and organizations have experienced an 81 percent increase in cyber threats since the start of the pandemic? They also reported that the global cost of cybercrime is predicted to hit $8 trillion in 2023 and grow to $10.5 trillion by 2025. Human error remained the most common and effective threat vector, responsible for 82 percent of data breaches in 2022. These statistics go on and on.

Turn Your Greatest Vulnerability Into Your Best Line of Defense 

Cybersecurity Awareness Month, now in its 20th year, is an annual collaboration between government and private industry to raise awareness about digital security and empower everyone to protect their personal data from digital forms of crime.

While many organizations throw more technology at the problem trying to remove the human element from the equation, at Cofense we argue that technology alone will never be enough and your employees are actually one of the most important lines of defense, playing a critical role in defending against cybersecurity attacks. Organizations must invest in employees and teach them to not only identify but also report questionable activity. Employees need to be empowered, encouraged, and even motivated to report suspicious activity. And, if something gets by the employee, SOC teams need to be able to remediate that threat quickly and efficiently.

Listen in on October 11th at 11am ET and learn:

  • How to develop an email security program that includes positive reinforcement, real-life simulations, and a culture where employees embrace their important role in defending the organization.
  • What technology to deploy to help lighten the load of your SOC analysts through automation.
  • The role content plays and why having a variety of content types is important.
  • How to leverage the community of other like-minded organizations to prevent future attacks to your organization.
  • How to report the progress and return on investment to senior leadership.
