Effectively train employees on security and privacy
Tuesday, January, 19th, 2021
Defeating malware and ransomware attacks requires more than just technology — it requires people. Your people need to identify the threat, they need to mitigate the threat, and they need to clean up after the threat. The most important part of this three-legged stool is identifying the threat, because if it is identified before it launches, you have a much easier time to clean up the problem and no data is compromised. Sometimes it will fall to non-security personnel to identify the threat – the random employee who get a phishing email, the employees who find “lost” thumb drives in the parking lot, or perhaps even the security guard who is asked to hold a door open for an “executive-looking” individual carrying coffee and doughnuts for their “colleagues.” Sometimes something that looks legit isn’t and it takes a keen eye to differentiate between the two. This 20/20 webcast will address how US-based security executives and HR staff can train employees to focus on security and privacy, even when it is not their sole focus.
