HOBOKEN, N.J., Sept. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and information governance consultant, discusses effective cyber-security training a new article on the Messaging Architects website.
The informative article urges business leaders to emphasize the reasons behind cyber-security policies to increase compliance among employees. The author also encourages the use of a multi-faceted approach and to focus cyber-security training by department for greater impact. She then offers a simplified approach with three essential points to teach.
"If you fail to fully address human error, you have missed the most vulnerable aspect of information security," stated Dena Kamel, Consulting Director at Messaging Architects. "The solution lies in delivering effective cyber-security training, a goal that can prove difficult to achieve."
Below are a few excerpts from the article, "Minimize Risk with Effective Cyber-Security Training."
"Employees inadvertently create security problems by using weak passwords, clicking malicious links, failing to properly delete data and ignoring other basic rules of data protection. Providing ongoing, engaging and pertinent training can potentially save your organization millions of dollars in data breach remediation."
Emphasize the "Why"
"When employees understand not just the security policies, but also the reasons behind those rules, they are more likely to follow them. Why should I care about password guidelines and email safety? Because damage from cyber-attacks can prove catastrophic, costing you your job, and because the responsibility for cyber-security lies with every person in the company who touches data."
Focus Training for Impact
"Resist the temptation to overload employees with information. Instead, focus each training event on one or two main themes, such as recognizing phishing scams or safe file-sharing.
In addition, keep in mind that effective cyber-security training targets information according to the audience. The billing department, human resources and IT all approach data from different angles. Target training according to the needs and priorities of each area."
