In the cyber security domain, we are often focusing on protection, response, investigation, compliance, etc. It is usually assumed, that every cyber security measure we enforce – be it a technology or a process, is seen merely as a restriction, an overhead to the daily work of people and the business operations. For example, we often say, that the most secured device is the one that is turned off, right? But maybe we are not presenting the matter properly to our employees in the first place, which results in the perception we see today. The user is not happy with the endpoint DLP sniffing on his device for some sort of important data and trying to block all attempts to send out data that it deems unacceptable. But the truth is, nobody has explained to the users why this is necessary and what’s in it for them. The same goes for trainings – usually, internal trainings are underestimated, ignored, and considered a waste of time. Indeed, there is much to improve in the way we train people on a certain topic. To make these trainings effective, we also need to change the perception and attitude of the people. Thanks to companies like CybeReady, which make the trainings very short, interactive, easy, fun and simulate real-life scenarios, we’ve seen some progress in terms of the training approach, but we are still failing to explain to our employees and management why this should be taken seriously. So in the next paragraphs, we have summarized the top 5 reasons why a company should invest more effort in training its employees and how the employees can benefit from it.
