Cybersecurity Training & Awareness

According to Tessian, 88% of cyber breaches incidents involve human error – a click, a response, a forward. Frequent and engaging security awareness training is critical to an organization's cybersecurity posture. Skinner Technology Group offers cybersecurity awareness training sessions that can be conducted in-person or virtually, tailored to your organization's unique requirements or designed for specific user groups, including your industry, financial team, executives, board members, or IT teams. We recommend that any organization conducts annual cybersecurity training at a minimum.

Your users are your first line of security.

At the core of our training philosophy is a passion for user education. We believe that well-informed individuals are the foundation of a strong cybersecurity culture. By arming participants with knowledge, skills, and a heightened awareness of cybersecurity, we aim to turn what may be perceived as the weakest link into a formidable advantage for organizations. Here’s a closer look at what our training typically includes:

  1. Current cyber threats. We believe in keeping our training materials current and relevant. Our sessions often kick off with an overview of recent, real-life cyber incidents. By examining these events, participants gain valuable insights into the evolving tactics employed by cybercriminals.
  2. Common types of attacks. Understanding the various avenues through which cyberattacks can occur is crucial. We provide detailed descriptions and real-world examples of common methods, including phishing and related attacks, business email compromise, and ransomware. These insights empower individuals to recognize threats effectively.
  3. Individual responsibility. Cybersecurity is a collective effort, and each individual plays a vital role in their organization’s security. We emphasize the importance of personal responsibility in maintaining a secure digital environment. Participants learn how their actions and decisions can impact the overall security of the organization.
  4. Spotting phishing attempts. Phishing attacks remain a prevalent threat. Our training covers spotting a phish and equipping participants with the skills to identify suspicious emails, messages, and links. This knowledge serves as a critical defense against falling victim to phishing scams.
  5. Responding to cyber attacks. In the unfortunate event of a cyber attack, knowing how to respond swiftly and effectively can make all the difference. Our training communicates the essential steps to take if you become a victim of a cyberattack, ensuring that individuals are well-prepared to report incidents promptly.

Our goal extends beyond just providing training; it’s about fostering a culture of cybersecurity awareness. When individuals across your organization are educated and vigilant, they become proactive defenders against cyber threats.
