Computer Security: Social Engineering Preventative Training
Research tells us 84 percent of hackers leverage social engineering in cyberattacks. Hackers are always one step ahead and are continually improving their tradecraft. A well-executed hack can be devastating to your clients, vendors, employees, investors, bottom line, and reputation. And, the number of attacks is on the rise. Your best defense is an educated employee, combined with strong policies that have a human-centric focus.
Our class focuses on what your employees can do to help prevent your company being victimized. We cover all the identified methods hackers use to develop their profiles and acquire the information necessary to allow them to hack your system. We do this through information sessions, active class participation, investigative reviews where social engineering was determined to be the method used to hack a victim, and video training examples. Educated employees tend to be conscientious employees that will put what they have learned to good use.
This class is constantly evolving, as hackers’ methods evolve and are identified. Students can opt in to receive our email updates covering the latest developments on this important topic. Whenever new methods or tactics are identified, we will e-mail our students with the updates.
Employees are the weakest link when it comes to computer security. You owe it to your clients and your investors to protect their information.
