Leapfrog helps clients keep their networks and systems secure but there’s only so much your IT team can do on its own to keep your IT environment safe. All the advanced perimeter technology in the world won’t help if your employees inadvertently hand criminals the keys. More than 90% of attacks on IT networks start with a phishing email, and ransomware attacks are getting more common and brazen in part because untrained employees click on links or inadvertently share information that they shouldn’t.
We connect our clients with vetted partners who provide interesting, engaging, interactive training that teaches your employees how to identify risks and spot the slickest new scams, including sophisticated social engineering scams. We recommend training programs that include self-directed training modules that employees complete on their own, plus test emails that are sent to employees company-wide to see who is falling for what type of scam.
While training is not a big budget item (it can cost less than $30/month per employee), you will need to budget for someone internally to manage your training program. Leapfrog can help you determine what kind of training you need, how to budget for it, how to implement it, and how to update your cybersecurity policies and procedures so that all of your employee-related cybersecurity work is aligned.
