Why Companies & Individuals Need Social Engineering Security Awareness Training?

The benefits of investing in social engineering security awareness training outweigh the cost of a leak or breach. The following are some of the potential repercussions should your business fall victim to a cyber-attack:

  • Loss of revenue
  • Reputation damage
  • Loss of clients
  • Operational disruptions

This course is a true tour de force when it comes to cybersecurity. The sponsors focus on the issues and threats that impact on all of us. How, and to what extent, you implement the information and advice provided will depend on your needs, risk tolerance, and ability to withstand the consequences should a threat materialize.

Whether you are a student, a person responsible for a household, retiree, employee, corporate official, or security officer, you will find the material here you can understand and, importantly, put to use immediately in your cyberenvironment.
