IT Security Awareness Training Made Easy

25 May 2017

French Duncan have recently partnered with a leading security business to offer a fully managed Security Awareness Training and Testing service.    One of the biggest risks to your business is employees opening infected email links or attachments.  The volume of attacks is increasing and this now represents a very real risk to business.    Our security awareness service is proven to reduce this risk to acceptable levels.  Your staff will be educated on which emails are secure business communications and are safe to open without the risk confusion that causes unnecessary delay and disruption to business.

How it works:

The service is web-based interactive security awareness training, combined with frequent simulated phishing attacks, live demonstration videos and short tests making sure your employees understand the mechanisms of spam, phishing, spear phishing, website security, pop ups, adverts, malware, ransomware, social engineering and physical security.

This is a full managed service which requires little input from you or your team.

The content is created for you, simulated attacks are scheduled and the results are tracked and are reported back to you promptly.

 

Security Awareness Training Overview:

1. The service starts with a company-wide baseline Phishing Security Test which will show the percentage of your users that are Phish-prone.

2. The next step is to provide all employees with Security Awareness Training. This is delivered at the desktop and can be started and paused as required by the user.   

3. After the initial company-wide training, the highly effective scheduled Phishing Security Tests keep employees on their toes. Employees who fall for the attacks receive instant remedial online training.

 

How will training actually stop end users causing security incidents?

Security Awareness Training makes an immediate difference to end users’ behaviour. However, what normally happens after completing any training, without continuous reinforcement, is that the message is gradually forgotten within a few weeks of returning to day to day activities.

This is where our managed service is unique and actually stops your users causing security incidents.
