Security Awareness Training Objectives
Shades of Gray Security’s Security Awareness Training Program provides a world-class education for your staff to help them easily identify potential security problems and properly respond to any suspicious activity. It also prepares them to handle sensitive data. Knowing how to properly manage sensitive data, how to store, move, and destroy it is critical to prevent data leakage. Proper training is the first line of defense and greatly reduces the risk, and minimizes the damages of a data breach.
Putting it Together
Fully Engaged Resources
Our Security Awareness Training Program delivers a world-class training program by a veteran security consultant who has seen countless examples of bad security practices and has focused on educating people on how to avoid falling for scams and properly handling sensitive data. By focusing on the individual employee’s daily life, we raise their awareness of what to look for in their daily lives and once they develop that mindset, they bring that into your organization. We have dozens of stories from our social engineering testing program that we bring with us to help drive the point home. Our students are captivated and remember those stories year after year and many times they can’t wait to tell us how they applied our training to help protect the company, themselves, and friends and family.
