Despite all the funds you may have spent on state-of-the-art security software, the bad guys are just one gullible user click away from staging an all-out invasion. To make matters worse, that user might well be you!

Yet by far the most effective strategy in combating these attacks is also one of the most poorly implemented – security awareness training. The long list of “worst practices” for user education is almost endless – break room briefings while people eat lunch and catch up on email; and short videos that provide superficial understanding. The most widespread of the solutions dates back to the old time-honored practice of hoping for the best and doing nothing. Find out what GosummIT’s best practices are for security awareness training – those that establish a human firewall to effectively block hackers and criminals, and keep you out of the headlines.
