In computer security, users can represent a significant threat if they are not taught how to recognize security attacks. User awareness training helps to mitigate these risks by educating and testing employees about potential security risks that they might face.
Email security is a principal focus of this training. Users need to be made aware that they are responsible for their email security. Clicking a malicious attachment or link could result in fraud or a data breach and lead to losses both financial and reputational.
User security awareness training is used to ensure every employee can recognize and avoid potential threats to a computer system’s critical data and networks. This training usually includes mock attacks to test and reinforce good security practices. It provides employees with the skills to identify social engineering attacks and take appropriate actions to protect themselves against them.
