ThreatAdvice Educate is NXTsoft’s cybersecurity education solution that trains employees on the basics of good cybersecurity practices in an organization. ThreatAdvice Educate includes micro-learning, video-based courses and testing as well as phishing simulations and administrative tracking of employee progress.
It has become crucial that businesses and organizations educate employees on cybersecurity because an astounding 90 percent of all enterprise cyber breaches occur due to an unsuspecting employee that lacks basic cybersecurity preparedness. While this is a surprising statistic to many, your own employees are most often the weakest link in your organization’s cybersecurity.
Cyber-attackers and cyber-criminal groups are constantly monitoring vulnerabilities in the cybersecurity practices of their target victims. Cybersecurity experts urge executives to remind employees to call upon their cybersecurity training to combat and recognize attacks. Educating employees decreases cybersecurity vulnerability and can lead to the prevention of a potentially catastrophic data breach.
It is important to understand that the gravity of the consequences that can occur due to a data breach.
Not only can important data and confidential records and information be lost, but the cost in the form of time and money to remediate a breach can be devastating. According to Ponemon Institute’s Cost of a Data Breach Report, the average cost of a data breach in the U.S. is up to 8.64 million dollars in 2020. On average, 40% of the total cost of a breach from a cyber-attack emanates from lost business. Cyber-breaches can cause a significant amount of downtime resulting in customer turnover, loss of revenue, and damaged reputation.
It only takes one naïve employee to bring down your organization. The truth is the depredation from a cyber-breach can be prevented and avoided by simply training and educating employees.
