How to Train Your Team on Cyber Security

Regularly training your team about cyber security should be a business priority. Cyber threats are constantly evolving and becoming more targeted which means you need to be ahead of the game. Help protect your systems and data by educating your team on how to spot malicious threats.

Make cyber security training part of your onboarding process

From the get-go, it’s important to teach your team about the ever-growing cyber threats out there and how they can lead to data breaches and serious fines.

From how to set a secure password to how to spot a phishing email, this needs to be an essential part of their induction.

Live Fire Phishing Tests

Sending out regular internal phishing tests can go a long way towards educating your team. It keeps them on their toes, tests them in a real-life scenario and helps you to identify weaknesses and improve training in the future.

Management is important

Ensure someone within your organisation is responsible for cyber security training. It’s important that your team have a point of contact for cyber security queries and there is someone to regulate training processes.


Communicate new threats

Host meetings and internal webinars to inform your team about the latest techniques cyber criminals are using. This will help your team stay one step ahead and help stop your business fall victim to an attack.


Mix it up to keep your team engaged

When training your team, you should mix up the training styles, using online quizzes, webinars and digital courses. This will help to keep your team interested and engaged.
