How Often Should You Train Employees on Cybersecurity Awareness?
Training your employees once is never enough. People tend to forget what they have learned after a few months. Aside from that, we can’t change someone’s behavior if we do not have a better approach to training.
At BetterWorld Technology, we highly recommend that business owners give their employees training every four months. Read this blog if you want to know more.
Why Should You Give Your Employees Cybersecurity Training Every Four Months?
According to a study presented at the USENIX SOUPS, trainees who received cybersecurity training for four months can quickly identify and avoid clicking on phishing emails. However, their performance started getting worse after six months.
Tips To Train Employees To Develop a Cybersecure Culture
If your employees develop a secure culture, they can avoid phishing scams and other sorts of malicious threats easily.
Here are some tips to help you train your employees so that they can develop a cybersecure culture:
● Provide self-service videos every month
● Conduct a team-based discussion
● Give them a security “tip of the week”
● Conduct a training session with a professional IT specialist
● Conduct a simulated phishing test
● Remind them through cybersecurity posters
● Celebrate cybersecurity awareness month in October
Your employees should know what SMS and social media phishing look like to avoid being scammed.
Make sure to discuss with your team how vital credential and password security is.
Mobile Device Security
Review the security needs of your employee’s devices, especially those that they use for work.
Train your employees to handle, protect, and secure any data properly.
