Share Data Securely: The Crucial Role of Employee Training in Cybersecurity

Written by Susan Dykas on . Posted in , .

In today’s digital world, data sharing is a guarantee, with businesses interlinking employees, vendors, servers and more. Consequently, cybersecurity has become a paramount concern for businesses, and rightfully so. The intricate web of data sharing could pose significant security threats.

Understanding Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting data and networks from digital attacks. A sound cybersecurity strategy encompasses multiple layers of protection, including safeguarding your organization’s computers, networks, programs, and data. One of the biggest risks to your network security is employees. Employees access secure data at work, and often at home or in transit.

Cybersecurity Begins with Employee Training

Every business thrives on data exchange, and therefore, each person within an organization has a responsibility to ensure information is handled and shared securely.

An informed team is your first line of defense against cyber threats. Employee training in cybersecurity is about more than sharing knowledge; proper training tailors a tech-savvy mindset that effectively recognizes and addresses potential risks. With thorough and ongoing training, a business cultivates a culture of security awareness, which, in turn, contributes to strengthening an organization’s cybersecurity systems.

At SkyViewTek, we understand the crucial role employee training plays in fortifying a business’s cybersecurity armor. Therefore, we offer our clients regular employee training on cybersecurity best practices each month.

Our training helps reduce the risk of inconspicuous missteps that could unintentionally expose your business network to a security breach. We equip your teams with the necessary skills to identify threats, prevent unauthorized access, and respond to any potential attacks promptly. By doing so, we help ensure that your employees become your strongest defense against cybercrime.

Some of the subjects we cover in our training are

  • Physical Security Precautions – Careless habits in the workplace can leave network computers vulnerable to bad actors.
  • Email Threats – According to some studies, 96% of cyberattacks involve email.
  • Username and Password Management – Many people reuse passwords or use passwords that are too common and easy to guess.
  • Mobile Security – BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environments are vulnerable to attack without proper controls.
  • Secure Website Browsing – Many website browsing habits, such as viewing social media, can lead to data breach.
