Security awareness training and education is not an easy task and it is never done. Even if you find the best security awareness content you still need to plan the training, select which groups need it and reinvent it every year to keep engagement up. You can’t do too much of it or people will get fatigued, and you can’t do to little or people won’t be aware of the risks. We’re here to help with the best ready-made security awareness training programs!
AwareGO’s security awareness content and training platform is designed to empower people to become more cyber secure in their behavior and thinking. To minimize guesswork on behalf of SAT admins and champions we create ready-made security awareness training programs on important cybersecurity topics within our platform. Both our videos and ready-made security awareness training programs are designed and curated by experts in cyber security and human behavior. They not only make the work easier for those in charge of training but also emphasize and bring the employees’ attention to the latest threats in their everyday work and private life.
We recently added three new ready-made security awareness training programs to our platform.
Security awareness training program for phishing
Phishing is the number one risk when it comes to cybersecurity. Over 90% of all successful cyber-attacks start with some kind of phishing email. The ready-made security awareness training program for phishing includes 12 training lessons, each one with a video, additional reading materials and a quiz at the end. The training program teaches people to recognize phishing emails and being vigilant when it comes to all emails and attachments. It covers phishing, vishing, spear phishing, CEO scams, spyware, attachments, MS Office related threats and more.
The total duration of the security awareness training program for phishing is 13 minutes. We recommend delivering it over 4-6 weeks.
Training program tip: You can deliver the lessons of this training program once a week for a duration of 12 weeks if you worry about training fatigue.
Security awareness training program for data leaks
Data leaks can happen due to malicious insiders that leak data willingly. However, most data leaks happen accidentally. Fortunately, you can train people to minimize the risk of accidental data leaks. This training program focuses on precisely that and raises awareness on how data can leak out as well as the need to report every incident. It includes 22 training lessons and covers physical and removable media, online document converters, data handling, printing, dumpster diving and much more.
The total duration of the security awareness training program for data leaks is 28 minutes. We recommend delivering it over 7-11 weeks.
Training program tip: Before starting any training program introduce the concept of cyber security to people and explain why it’s needed. It’s not just business information that could leak out but personal information about employees too.
Security awareness training program for online shopping
Security awareness does not just revolve around work at the office or at home. Every employee has a life outside work and this can affect their personal as well as the workplace’s cyber security. People will shop online and have their private social media pages. Help them become more cybersecure in all aspects of their lives by teaching them how to recognize cyber scams. If they are confident in recognizing them while browsing and shopping online they will create good cybersecurity habits. These habits will follow into their work-life too.
The security awareness training program for online shopping includes seven training lessons and only takes eight minutes to complete. We recommend delivering it over 2-3 weeks.
Training program tip: Supplement the training with AwareGO’s checklist for cyber secure online shopping. It’s also a good idea to start this training shortly before the biggest online shopping season starts.
