Cybersecurity: Tackling Human Error with Tailored Training
In today’s digital age, the importance of cybersecurity cannot be overstated. With cyber threats evolving at an alarming rate, it’s crucial for businesses to prioritize protecting their data and systems. According to a study by IBM, an astounding 95% of cyber breaches can be traced back to human error. Despite the advancements in cybersecurity technology, the fallibility of human judgment remains a significant challenge. This staggering statistic demonstrates the urgent need for proactive measures and for businesses to address this issue and equip their employees with the knowledge and skills to combat everyday cyber threats effectively.
Recognizing the critical role that human behavior plays in cybersecurity, modern businesses are implementing dedicated training programs to identify and address individual security blind spots. Kibo Connect is one such modern business that stays ahead of the game when it comes to cybersecurity! We are proud to have launched cyber awareness training courses that identify and tackle each employee’s unique risk areas through uSecure’s Automate user-tailored training. The training begins with a comprehensive gap analysis questionnaire which covers a range of topics; including phishing, secure passwords, physical security, security at home, public Wi-Fi, social engineering, social media, mobile device security usage, internet, and email. Based on the questionnaire responses, the platform automatically enrolls each staff member in relevant courses, starting from their weakest areas and progressing towards their strongest.
By automating the process of identifying and addressing these weaknesses, we can ensure that our employees receive relevant and timely training. This approach empowers us to:
- Build a security-savvy workforce equipped to identify and mitigate potential risks
- By reducing human error, we significantly decrease the number of security incidents caused by employee negligence
- The ease of setup and quality of support it provides empowers us to efficiently manage and monitor employee cyber awareness
- Each course takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete, ensuring employees can integrate it seamlessly into their work routines
- The automated nature of the program eliminates the need for manual intervention, making it a hassle-free solution for both employees and managers
- The platform’s capabilities enable us to reduce client security incidents and drive long-term recurring revenue by offering comprehensive cybersecurity solutions.
Kibo Connect’s IT Operations Manager, Kobus Potgieter attests to the effectiveness of the security awareness-tailored training, stating: “The awareness training has positively impacted our approach to security within our organisation and in employees’ personal lives.”
Don’t let human error compromise your business’ cybersecurity!
