Senior Management, IT teams, and all corporate employees are the primary focus of our cyber security training. We believe in a top down approach to effective cyber risk mitigation, with good practices demonstrated by management and passed down to employees.
Training should be required by all employees, with different departments focusing on threats relevant to their area, for example: finance employees need to be extra vigilant of phishing threats and CEO email scams when processing invoices. Another example is Office Managers and Receptionists should be aware of the risks posed by unknown USB devices, and not to plug in unknown USB devices on company networks.
