Back in March 2020 when most people up and down the country were sent to work from home due to the coronavirus outbreak, the top priority wasn’t to ensure our employees had up to date Security Awareness Training. However, it has come apparent that many companies have found themselves troubled due to the lack of cyber awareness.

Mimecast released their State of Email Security Report, where organisations were asked about their preparation, challenges, and results of implementing email security. They found that there were concerns for email born threats and these worries have been proven valid over the last year:

  • Email threats rose by 64% between 2019 and 2020
  • 79% of companies were hurt by their lack of cyber preparedness
  • 6 out of 10 companies experienced a ransomware attack
  • 34% of those attacked by ransomware failed to get their data back

It’s obvious that despite having email security solutions in place, it’s essential to allow users access to Security Awareness Training. At the end of the day, security is a people problem. Us humans are often the key for targeted attacks, and it only takes one click to cause serious technical and financial issues. That’s why here at VeryPC, we have a world-class, user friendly, Security Awareness Training Software that's both simple and effective to use.

You'll be able to train your users with an initial online training program which features interactive modules, videos and games. However, the real beauty of this software is being able to phish your own users. Choose from thousands of "known to work" templates which people often fall for. You'll be able to track if a user opens any attachments, clicks a link or even replies to the phishing email you have sent to them. We're even able to set you up with a 30 day free trial, so you can experience it for yourself so get in touch today to explore how you can benefit your company from Security Awareness Training.
