Custom Employee Cyber Security Privacy Training
POWERNET strongly believes that one of the biggest vulnerabilities to data security is presented through people. Countless data breach surveys have highlighted that data compromise is commonly caused from within an organization. This is not suggesting that all organization’s employ hackers or employees with criminal undertones. However, many data breaches are caused by users with poor IT security knowledge, or poor understanding of how to deal with digital data in general.
POWERNET provides on-site security awareness training for staff, which is tailored to meet your organizations requirements. We can provide pragmatic training structured to help protect your organizations data assets. Cyber Security cannot be tackled through technology alone. Security solutions such as firewalls, web content scanners and anti-virus engines all have their place, but for an organization to be truly security aware it must educate and train its people. Security should be central to a company’s policy, process and working practice.

Social Engineering Awareness Training
The best technical defense won’t protect you against a socially engineered attack. This overlooked threat is an extraordinary security risk. In today’s world, social engineering is one of the most commonly used vectors by attackers to gain access to a company’s physical location and/or sensitive data. Many organizations believe their yearly security awareness training are enough to warn their employees of these type of attacks – but, how do they really know if they are effectively working? At POWERNET we launch realistic social engineering campaigns to evaluate how employees will react to social engineering attacks. POWERNET begins social engineering assessments with real-life intelligence gathering and create customized real-world attacks.
Consider a Continuous Training Approach
A cycle of assessment, education, reinforcement, and measurement maximizes learning and lengthens retention. Our security awareness and training methodology is a continuous approach to risk reduction. Consider pairing our social engineering assessments and education with our Security Awareness Materials to reinforce key messages in the workplace. And be sure to take advantage of our reporting tools to measure progress and tailor future efforts.
Protecting Sensitive Data
POWERNET is able to provide proactive security awareness monitoring services on an on-going basis. Through technical penetration tests, focused on identifying data leakage. Through to scheduled phishing attempts across the external facing email infrastructure. POWERNET can assess how well users understand the company’s information security policy.
Documented security policies and employee training help organizations meet regulatory compliance requirements as well as boost network security. In fact, security training is now required by a number of government and industry regulations.
In developing a security training program, organizations should begin by determining the goals to be met. Rather than addressing a broad range of security issues, focus on those threats that could have the greatest impact on the organization. Make sure employees understand security policies and the penalties for violating them. Role-based training should drill down into specific procedures and requirements.
Employees need to understand that security and compliance are not just the responsibility of a select few. Everyone needs to be vigilant in order to prevent a costly security breach. POWERNET’s cyber security team can assess your organization’s security risks and help you develop smart strategies for protecting your systems and data.
Through conducting these scheduled tests, organizations can develop their security awareness program and build a more robust program that protects the organization’s information assets.
