There are arising new sorts of cyber-attacks as well, and they become endemic after some time. The essential medicine for this pandemic is ongoing awareness sessions and training courses. The most effective and cost-efficient strategy for an organization to improve cyber consciousness and resilience is high-quality cybersecurity training.
It is developing necessary policies and procedures for building baseline and ground rules in the company. Work on maintaining continuous momentum and employee engagements. But to avoid vulnerable human behaviors, HR, Security, and Risk Management leaders should be very attentive and careful in exploiting ineffective security awareness campaigns. It should not be considered as mandatory training or just a part of some digitalization project. Such types of campaigns should be on an ongoing basis and should be conducted organization-wide.
The security awareness computer-based training (SACBT) market is characterized by vendor offerings that include ready-to-use, interactive content modules. These modules are available as cloud-hosted SaaS applications or on-premises deployments via client-managed learning management systems (LMSs). Also, they support the Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) standard to support integration with corporate learning management systems.
Vendors typically offer security awareness content delivery through various digital endpoints and provide a platform to operationalize a security awareness program.
Cybersecurity awareness’s key goals are mainly enhancing employee knowledge, driving behaviour change, changing security “rituals,” ensuring regulatory compliance, and reinforcing behavioural expectations on an ongoing basis.
Will it be possible to “vaccinate” the cyber pandemic? Unfortunately, it is challenging to answer this question, and let’s assume that it will not be possible for the next decade. So, let’s equip ourselves and be ready before any cyber-attacks kick our door.
Moreover, it will be a win-win strategy for your company: we show more attention to our workforce’s needs, and in return, they protect our digital assets.
