Cyber Security Awareness Training for Employees

Cybersecurity awareness training arms your employees with the tools they need to protect company data. Employees are both the first line of defense and the weakest link in cybersecurity. Creating and maintaining a culture of IT security is essential to protect your business from cyberattacks.

Security awareness training for employees is now an underwriting requirement for many cyber insurance policies. Our experts will help your employees protect sensitive company data, including customer, patient, employee and financial information. We will teach them to understand the threats, risks, and safe responses needed to protect network access. Training helps reduce the risk that employees present to the organization and turns them into a human firewall -- trained and ready to protect company data. In addition, DIGIGUARD will provide customized awareness training to your team and help ensure:

A Password Manager: Fundamental Cyber Awareness Training

The majority of data breaches start with a compromised password. Password management software will significantly reduce the risk of data theft, email compromise, and cybersecurity incidents of all types. This software gives employees the tools they need to help secure the company network. It also gives you administrative oversight and control of which employees have access. You can also shut down access very quickly when needed. DIGIGUARD strongly recommends using a password manager for all of our clients. It’s easy to use and inexpensive, and we provide individual training and support for all your employees.
