The IBM Security Services 2014 Cyber Security Intelligence Index showed that 95% of all incidents investigated resulted from human error.

Even though malicious outsiders represent the biggest risk to organizations, inadvertent actors, i.e employees, clients and vendors have been noted to be more dangerous to your cybersecurity risk posture because their actions are the cause of most incidents. These inadvertent actors represent the other side of the “Cybersecurity Threat” that every organization battles.

Covenant in response has created a 30 minute Cybersecurity Fundamentals course that will explain what cybersecurity is and why it is important to organizations and provide scenarios for staff to understand how everyday interactions matter to protecting the enterprise.

The company encourages organizations to be empowered to protect information system from cyber risks. Visit this link Covenant Awareness Training & Education Resource System to enroll in the course today.

Many transactions today are online; it’s important that every staff member knows how to protect information and that of the organization from those who could put it at risk. Given recent cyber incidents from Target to Home Depot it is clear that there are people out there who want personal and business information. It is unfortunate, but organizations can’t trust that everything being processed online is secure. This course will lay the foundation for how team members can protect themselves and the organization.

The Cybersecurity Fundamentals course will explain why it is important to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your information. It will also introduce common cyber threats posed by unsuspected emails and common sites that may be dangerous to visit. After completing the course the learner will be able to better identify cyber threats and understand the importance of protecting information.
