The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has a FREE e-learning package to help businesses improve the cyber awareness of their staff. Often an organisation will spend money and time ensuring they have technical cyber security in place, but the fact is employees are the primary cause of cyber-attacks.
Cyber Security training for staff is often overlooked or is a cost many SMEs and charities simply can't afford, leaving staff exposed to potential cyber-attacks without the knowledge or information to defend against them.
The 'Top Tips For Staff' e-learning can be completed online, or built into your own training platform.
It’s totally free, easy-to-use and takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The training introduces why cyber security is important and how attacks happen, and then covers four key areas:
- defending yourself against phishing
- using strong passwords
- securing your devices
- reporting incidents ('if in doubt, call it out')
The training is primarily aimed at SMEs, charities and the voluntary sector, but can be applied to any organisation, regardless of size or sector. It's been deliberately designed for a non-technical audience (who may have little or no knowledge of cyber security), with tips that complement any existing policies and procedures.
