Overview

According to the Federation of Small Business, 19,000 cyber crimes are committed against small businesses every single day of the year. Thinking that weaknesses in the technology environment is cause for the biggest risks to an organisation’s information security is not unreasonable. However, it is the action or inaction by a company’s officers, directors, employees and other personnel which holds this dubious honour. If your first line of defence does not understand or keep current with cyber-crime techniques your company presents itself as a target to be used by criminals who will quickly identify the opportunity. Examples include:

  • Inadvertent disclosure of information that could be used in a social engineering attack;
  • Not recognizing unusual activity or not reporting it;
  • Accessing sensitive information unrelated to the user’s role; and
  • Clicking on malicious email links or opening unknown attachments.

People are one of the key assets of any organisation. Our experience has proven an informed workforce is fundamental to implementing effective systems and processes and can be your biggest ally against risk. Arming your employees with the skills to deter those who would compromise you is the first of many steps you can take to protect your organisation.

Risk Evolves prides itself in delivering the theory supported by practical, interactive sessions with illustrations using real examples. This is not “death by PowerPoint”.
