A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. No matter how secure your company may be, there are still ways that an outsider can gain access to your valuable information. Your employees are both your most valuable resource and a hacker’s greatest accomplice. Using a technique known as “Social Engineering” a hacker could gain just enough information to get a foothold into your organization.
Security Awareness programs are an integral part of any security plan. Making your employees aware that they can be used to circumvent your security system is just the “preventative medicine” your company needs to remain healthy. This may seem like an easy task, but finding a way to make your employees continuously think about security while performing their daily activities is not an easy task. We have worked for both large and small organizations that have instituted required security awareness training. Security awareness campaigns can be as simple as an information packet in every employee’s mailbox to formal presentations on information security. Whatever the size of your company, we can tailor a program to fit your needs.
Should you need a custom class on secure application development, or building secure Windows, Linux or other Unix servers, our experienced team can conduct the class on location.
An old hacker’s saying goes as follows: “most companies are like M&Ms.; Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside”. The Trojan Horse is the oldest example of malware. It was brought inside the perimeter protection (much like the modern firewalls) because the population was not educated. Do not take that chance–contact us for a customized awareness campaign.
