Cybersecurity Awareness Training

Transform your staff into human firewalls.

No matter how strong your IT security systems are, user behaviour remains a major risk. All staff in your organization are at risk of receiving a malicious email. The key to ensuring your company data remains safe is in training your staff on how to recognise threats and act with caution.

Cybersecurity Awareness Training

Your employees are frequently exposed to sophisticated phishing and ransomware attacks. Cybersecurity is no longer the sole responsibility of your IT department. It’s everyone’s business.

Educating your staff on how to recognize phishing scams and malicious attacks is the key to ensuring your company data remains safe.

“Australia’s government and institutions are being targeted by ongoing sophisticated state-based cyber hacks”, according to Prime Minister Scott Morrison June 2020. Educating your staff to detect cyber risks is key to our defence.

Huon IT’s all-in-one training program uses a world-class phishing platform and training portal, KnowBe4. Your training service is fully customised and coordinated by a Huon IT trainer. The program takes place over a 12-month period.

Cybersecurity Awareness Training Steps

What are the Key Features of our Cybersecurity Awareness Training?

  • Monthly Reporting: You’ll see reporting for phishing campaigns as well as a general overview of your last five campaigns. You can drill-down into one-time and recurring campaigns for more detail.
  • 12-Month Program: The world of cybercrime is ever-changing. New, more convincing scams are released daily. So regular training updates on current threats is key to ensuring your staff remains informed and vigilant.
  • Custom Phishing Templates: In addition to the thousands of easy-to-use existing templates, you can customize scenarios based on personal information. Create targeted spear-phishing campaigns, which replace fields with personalized data.
  • Simulated Attachments: Your customized Phishing Templates can also include simulated attachments in the following formats: Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF, (also zipped versions of these files).
  • Custom Landing Pages: Each Phishing Email Template can also have its own Custom Landing Page, which allows for point-of-failure education and landing pages that specifically phish for sensitive information.
  • User Management: KnowBe4’s Active Directory Integration allows you to easily upload user data and saves you time by eliminating the need to manually manage user changes.
  • Smart Groups: Leverage the Smart Groups feature to tailor and automate your phishing campaigns, training assignments and remedial learning based on your employees’ behaviour and user attributes.
  • Social Engineering Indicators: Patented technology turns every simulated phishing email into a tool IT can use to dynamically train employees by instantly showing them the hidden red flags they missed within that email.
  • Phish Alert Button: KnowBe4’s Phish Alert add-in button gives your users a safe way to forward email threats to the security team for analysis. It also deletes the email from the user’s inbox to prevent future exposure.

Why is it Important to Train Your Staff in Cybersecurity?

Educating your staff on how to recognize phishing scams and malicious attacks is the key to ensuring your company data remains safe. Here are three reasons why cybersecurity awareness training is important to your business.

  1. Cyber-criminals don't discriminate: all staff in your organisation are at risk of receiving a malicious email. 
  2. Fast results: according to KnowBe4, who train six million users worldwide, companies begin with an average of 27% phish-prone users. After 90 days on the training program, this decreases to 13% on average, and after a year this is reduced to only 2.1%. 
  3. Reduced risk: without a proper training program for your staff, your business is at risk of not only financial loss through fraud but also business interruption, and damage to your business’s reputation.
