The goal of end-user cyber security awareness training

The main goal is to educate your end-users (i.e. employees) about the importance of cyber security and teach them how to not only protect themselves but also gain confidence that they can securely collaborate on the internet. The cyber security awareness training developed by CanIPhish aims to increase end-user knowledge of cyber security best practices and also to help them understand their role in maintaining the security of information assets.

By teaching end-users how to identify and mitigate potential security risks, you can reduce the likelihood of successful cyber attacks and protect sensitive data from potential breaches. Equipped with this information, take a look at our library of training courses and see if they meet your needs!

The Types of Cyber Security Awareness Training

Cyber security awareness training is a fundamental part of securing modern businesses. When we break security controls down to their fundamental components, they comprise of people, processes, and technologies.

Cyber criminals will look for any weakness when attempting to compromise businesses, and naturally, people are the most accessible and also the most commonly exploited. By training employees to be cyber-safe, we can protect them and, by proxy, our businesses. Let’s delve into the three types of security awareness training that can be delivered.

Security Awareness Training For The General Workforce

This type of training is what every employee should receive during their employment (with periodic refresher training). Some examples of this type of training include phishing training, situational awareness training, privacy awareness training, insider threat training, secure internet browsing, and more.

These training modules are designed to help employees be more cyber-aware during the course of their day-to-day job and make it less likely that a cyber criminal is able to exploit them as part of a social-engineering attack.

Security Awareness Training For Technical Employees

This type of training is designed for a subset of employees, such as IT administrators and software developers. Some examples of this type of training include secure software development training and privileged user training.

These training modules are designed to ensure technical employees know the importance of industry best practices and are also following them. Following these best practices can help to reduce the overall attack surface of a business and ensure that there aren’t unnecessary technology or process-related weaknesses that a cyber criminal can exploit.

Security Awareness Training For Compliance

This type of training is designed for all employees but only relates to businesses operating in specific industries or geographic regions where regulations or compliance frameworks need to be adhered to. Some examples of this type of training include secure credit card handling training, GDPR fundamentals training, ISO 27001 fundamentals training, SOC 2 fundamentals training, and more.

These training modules are designed to outline each employee's obligations when it comes to adhering to these regulations and compliance frameworks. While the immediate goal of these training modules is compliance-focused, the end goal is a more cyber-secure workforce.
