Employees’ time is precious. But, some security awareness training is merely trivia.

Irrelevant awareness training leads to:

  • wasted time across the entire organization
  • confusion about what they should know
  • apathy about security among staff

Security awareness training should provide practical knowledge, not just trivia.

Do all employees really need to know the difference between ransomware, a virus, or a worm?

When viewing a suspected phishing message, end-users have no idea if it will trigger ransomware, a keylogger or lure you to a spoofed website.

What they really need to know is how to spot risky situations, and then follow recommended procedures for reporting and avoiding them.
