Jungle Disk announced that it has added cybersecurity awareness training to its Complete Cybersecurity Suite providing small businesses access to a comprehensive cybersecurity solution to protect their business. This is the first time the training and tools needed to secure a small business have been available as a monthly subscription service.
The cybersecurity awareness training is an automated online learning solution that incorporates training modules, assessments and phishing simulations. In addition to cybersecurity awareness training, the Jungle Disk Complete Cybersecurity Suite includes computer and server backup, email archiving and password management.
The complete suite protects businesses from ransomware, data theft, brute force account hacking and more while providing training to reduce the odds they will become a victim to begin with.
According to a Shred-it survey, 47 percent of business owners said that human error was responsible for a data breach in their organization, which was higher than any other cause.
With the addition of cybersecurity awareness training to the Jungle Disk Complete Cybersecurity Suite, small businesses can enhance their security posture by minimizing the human portion of cybersecurity risk.
The coursework is developed to teach employees to keep security in mind and empower them to be the first line of defense for their company’s cybersecurity risks.
“Most cybercriminals target employees with simple social engineering attacks and all it takes is one wrong click to expose an entire network and cause an expensive data breach,” said Bret Piatt, CEO at Jungle Disk.
“Having the right cybersecurity software, tools and security training in place is something that businesses can no longer ignore. We are excited to be the first provider to offer this full cybersecurity suite to small businesses to help protect them from potential threats and empower their employees to act as key cyber defenders for their business. ”
The customized 12-month curriculum for the security awareness training includes an employee assessment, comprehensive courses, learning modules and anti-phishing simulations. The coursework and modules will cover key security topics such as:
- Phishing defense best practices
- Business email compromise
- Social engineering threats
- Mobile device, email and instant messaging security
- Password management
The best solution to cybersecurity threats is a combination of effective employee training, software and tools. Employee cybersecurity awareness training should be frequent and focused on important topics, while software and tools should help enforce positive cybersecurity habits.
