User Awareness and Education

Learn how an organization can educate its employees to make them aware of security threats.


Users are on the front line of protecting an organization. It’s often not by technical means that an attacker illicitly gains sensitive info, access to systems, and footholds on a protected network. They instead rely on the age-old method of social engineering , where the user is tricked into performing an action. The user is manipulated, often by exploiting trust and fear so that they don’t think before acting. Our goal is to get users to think first, especially when it comes to:

  • Clicking links

  • Opening attachments

  • Disclosing information

Training employees

Educating employees on social engineering attacks and techniques can take several forms, including:

  • Giving presentations to different groups.

  • Communications sent by leadership.

  • Sharing news stories of victims affected by cyber attacks.

  • Inviting law enforcement representatives to provide awareness training to groups.
