EDUCATE YOUR STAFF.
BUILD STRONG SECURITY HABITS. BOLSTER SECURITY.
One of the greatest risks to an organisation’s information security is often not a weakness in technology, but rather it is the action, or inaction, by employees that can lead to security incidents.
Habits drive security culture, and there are no technologies that will ever make up for poor security culture.
An effective Security Awareness program is critical to your organisation’s success. If implemented effectively, it becomes the cornerstone of your organisation’s security strategy by assisting with the education, monitoring, and ongoing maintenance of human controls.
WHAT IS CYBERSECURITY
While humans are vital to the effective operation of a business, they are unfortunately still human. Unlike machines that simply follow a set of protocols, humans have the ability to think freely, act independently and unfortunately - make errors.
When it comes to cybersecurity, one error could cause a string of devastation within an organisation. Therefore, organisations must work on actively mitigating the risk that comes along with a workforce of protocol-less human beings.
Security awareness training is a highly successful and necessary method to educate employees and C-suite members on the potential risks, compliance requirements and procedures put in place to keep organisational systems and data secure.
By conducting cybersecurity training for employees and C-suite members, you are taking the first step towards strengthening your most exploitable vulnerabilities - your people. Instead of them being a chink in your armour, you can utilise them as part of your defence.
LEADING DEFENCE STARTS WITH LOOP
Loop Secure can help by building your security awareness strategy and conducting cybersecurity awareness training for your employees and C-suite.
We appreciate the importance of employees understanding the gravity of their role in securing your organisation and the impact of the subsequent consequences. Therefore, when you work with us, we will deploy a comprehensive program ensuring that your people are fully briefed on your IT security strategies, frameworks and policies & procedures that ultimately prevent exploitation attempts by threat actors.
By the end of the program, employees will know how to:
Shut down phishing attempts
Identify potential social engineering attacks
Avoid malware exploits
Efficiently report cybersecurity threats
Understand and follow company information security policies and procedures
Operate in line with legislative compliance requirements
Loop’s experienced team continues to help leading businesses better understand their IT security challenges and compliance requirements.
SECURITY AWARENESS IS
NOT A ONE-OFF AFFAIR
To maintain a strong defence, your people must remain vigilant. The second that you drop the ball, your organisation will be in a prime position for a potential breach. Loop's Continual Security Awareness service ensures that your employees and C-suite members receive ongoing training on the latest exploit techniques ensuring that they are on high alert at all times.
Continual Security Awareness also provides the latest information and tactics to remain compliant with the relevant data privacy and compliance standards such as the APPs, PCI, DSS, GDPR, HIPAA and more.
And most importantly, we present different ways to test the effectiveness of your security awareness strategy.

HOW DO YOU ESTABLISH CYBERSECURITY AWARENESS?
Cybersecurity awareness is all about comprehensive, continual training for employees and C-suite members, conducted exclusively by an experienced GRC Consultant. For robust cybersecurity awareness, employees must understand the risks of operating online, the potential threats that lurk in the background and the consequences that result from complacency.
Cybersecurity is a fundamental part of any employee's role and by undertaking the appropriate training, they will become an essential part of an organisation’s defence.
How much does cyber security awareness training cost?
Starting from $2000 our security awareness training includes our full suite of services including phishing and training. Chat with our security consultants to find out more information
What should security awareness training include?
Security awareness training should include a thorough explanation of:
- How to spot phishing attempts
- What social engineering attacks look like
- How to avoid malware exploits
- What the current compliance requirements are
- A rundown on the organisation’s IT security policies and procedures
- How to report cybersecurity threats
Why do my firm and I need cybersecurity training? We already have antivirus software.
It is imperative for organisations to have cybersecurity awareness training as unfortunately, humans are the weakest link in an organisation’s cyber defence. A recent report by the ACSC demonstrated that over 60% of cyber threats occurred through human error.
While antivirus software will protect the business from some malicious attacks, threat actors can still gain access to sensitive data through the use of phishing, malware and social engineering attacks. By educating employees and C-suite members on the potential risks, organisations are further bolstering their cybersecurity perimeter.
