Here at Cofense, we know that cyber security awareness training isn’t limited to phishing protection. Although we primarily focus on conditioning employees to resist phishing attempts, and empower them to become part of the solution by identifying and reporting attacks in real time, we can help you combat threats from other online sources.
Based on our experience in threats and threat management, we have compiled a series of SCORM-compliant, cyber security awareness training modules. They’re yours free to download and use via a Learning Management System or as interactive PDFs. The training modules cover many areas of security to enhance defenses against threats from numerous sources, both online and offline.
Areas Covered by the Training Modules
Our cyber security awareness training modules are relevant to every business, whether you operate within a regulated industry or not. They include topics related to today´s biggest cyber security threats— malware, ransomware, social networking, safe surfing, phishing and more—as well as commonly overlooked threats such as password protection, device security and insider threats.
For employees in certain departments, we’ve built modules relating to business email compromise, cloud computing and environmental security. Every business that gathers, stores or processes data relating to EU residents should review our module about the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that takes effect in May 2018.
For businesses in regulated industries, cyber security awareness training is more than a check-a-box compliance requirement. It must be frequent and ongoing. Likewise, we regularly update our training modules on payment data compliance, personal data compliance and healthcare compliance to keep up with changes in the regulatory environment.
Why Phishing Training Needs to be Comprehensive
The hardest part of phishing training is building a business culture of openness and awareness. Mistakes happen. Effective phishing training helps employees identify, report and mitigate phishing attacks with continuous awareness training and informative reports.
