Cyber-awareness in Government and Large Enterprises

Program Overview

A report published by Netwrix, an IT Audit and Security company with clients such as Allianz, Airbus and AT&T to name a few, found the 100% of US Government organisations, see their own employees as the biggest threat to security. The graph below shows that human errors caused 57% of incidents in government organisations. In addition, 43% of the organisations had to also investigate incidents involving insider misuse.

Despite these frightening figures, the solution is extremely simple – appropriate cyber-awareness training for large sections of employees in an organisation, can reduce its risk by up to 70%, according to Aberdeen Group.
This program is designed for government entities and large organisations with the aim of increasing employee awareness and, consequently, reducing their cyber-related risks in a cost-effective manner. The program will cover topics such as attack surfaces, applicable legislation, practical steps on increasing personal cyber-resilience, etc.
