Has Your Business Considered Security Awareness Training?
It’s time to face the facts and acknowledge that our employees are the weak link in an organization’s network security. Not your employees. People. And what do we as people do? We make mistakes.
They are exposed to sophisticated phishing and ransomware attacks every day. Security experts estimate that 3.4 billion phishing emails are sent each day. Not properly training our employees about the very real threats that exist in today’s world is like sending troops to war without a plan or supplies.
LexGeek has partnered with KnowBe4 to provide our customers with a platform to better manage the urgent IT security problems of social engineering, spear phishing and ransomware attacks.
We’ve been using it internally for the past two years and have noticed drastic improvements in our employee’s ability to spot phishing attempts.
How much does security awareness training cost?
The cost largely depends on the number of employees. Also, there are a variety of options to choose from, including interactive modules, games, and the ability to randomly Phish Your Users to find out which users are prone to clicking on suspicious links to name a few.
If you have 25 employees, prices will range from $550-$825/year. For 50 employees, you are probably going to spend anywhere between $900-$1,500, depending on how advanced you want to get.
Considering that the average small business spends upward of $100,000 after being compromised, spending a thousand dollars for training your first line of defense is a no brainer.
