Security Awareness Training In Essential For Buffalo Businesses
Security Awareness Training is an essential part of your effective cybersecurity defense. Are your staff members supporting your cybersecurity? Or putting it at risk?
No matter how expensive or modern your firewall, antivirus, and other cybersecurity technologies may be, your own employees could put your entire business at risk.
The fact is that more than 90% of cybersecurity incidents can be traced back to human error.
The key to truly comprehensive cybersecurity is simple, yet often overlooked: the user. The best cybersecurity technology and practices in the world can be undone by one staff member who doesn’t understand how to use them, or how to protect the data they work with.

Security Awareness Training helps your employees learn how to recognize and avoid being victimized by phishing emails and scam websites. As a part of our Dark Web Scanning service, Globalquest provides a range of critical security awareness services to help train your employees.

Quarterly Phishing Testing
Did you know? The average phishing attack costs businesses like yours $1.6 million.
Phishing is a method in which cybercriminals send fraudulent emails that appear to be from reputable sources in order to get recipients to reveal sensitive information and/or execute significant financial transfers.
Phishing is a hacking technique that “fishes” for victims by sending them deceptive emails. Virtually anyone on the internet has encountered a phishing attack at one point or another — they’re extremely common.
In other cases, phishing attacks are mass emails that request confidential information or credentials under pretenses, link to malicious websites or include malware as an attachment.
Is your staff an easy target for social engineering scams like phishing? Our quarterly simulated attacks will put them to the test, and show you whether or not you need to invest further in cybersecurity awareness training.
Don’t Let Your Staff Put Your Organization At Risk
So much of cybersecurity is dependent on the user — that’s why it’s vital that you properly educate your employees and volunteers in safe conduct. The more your workforce knows about the security measures you have in place, the more confidently they can use the technology in a secure manner.
