Information Security for Non-Technical Employees 1-day course

A large percent of current cybersecurity attacks uses non-technical employees as an attack vector. Between phishing, malware distribution, social engineering attacks, password theft and breaches, as well as fake applications, the end user has never been under so much pressure to defend the cybersecurity of the organization.


While the ‘Human Factor’ and ‘Inside Threat’ cannot be overestimated, there are measures that can be taken to turn the end users of an organization into an active ally in the struggle to maintain cybersecurity in the complex and dynamic IT landscape of today. These measures almost always start with trainings to raise awareness of the issue to most employees.


This 1-day hands-on course is designed to introduce non-technical employees to the key threats to their organization’s cybersecurity and information security and to underscore their importance to this security.
