In today’s landscape, a business with 100 employees encounters an equal level of cybersecurity risk as a massive enterprise with 20,000 employees. Criminals may have various objectives when targeting a network, ranging from long-term infiltration and theft, to deceiving users and businesses for data or financial gain, or even acquiring user credentials to exploit different areas of the network. They may also try to transform a user’s device into a zombie for activities like operating a botnet or acting as a spam relay, or they may engage in cryptocurrency mining. The list of potential malicious actions continues to grow.
In today’s ever-changing landscape of threats, it is crucial for end users to receive frequent and consistent training in cyber awareness. This training empowers them to serve as the first line of defense for a business, rather than being a vulnerable point of weakness.
Security Awareness Training offers ongoing, pertinent, and quantifiable cybersecurity education that enables businesses to mitigate user errors that often lead to security breaches and financial losses. As an integral component of the small- to medium-sized business (SMB) platform, Security Awareness Training is effortless to implement and produces tangible outcomes. By leveraging real-time, worldwide threat intelligence, all training materials provided by Security Awareness Training are continuously updated and tailored to ensure timeliness and applicability, instilling confidence in customers regarding the relevance and effectiveness of the courses.

With the introduction of new features, you now can combine multiple activities and schedule them over a specific time.

These functionalities ensure accountability while making the entire process simple and straightforward.
What Results to Expect
According to research conducted by the Ponemon Institute, the implementation of security awareness training programs in businesses has resulted in significant enhancements in phishing email click rates. The study revealed improvements ranging from 26% to 99%, with an average increase of 64%.
During the first six months of usage, Security Awareness Training customers have seen these results:
- Phishing click-through rates drop from a 37% average to 12% in six months.
- Results are doubly effective if users leverage both phishing simulations and training, rather than simulations alone.
- The more training courses you run, the better the results. Running one to five courses over one to two months showed a 37% average click rate. Six to ten courses over three to four months showed a 28% click rate, and finally more than eleven courses over four to six months showed a 13% click rate. Training impact over a year means the average click rate goes from 37% down to 5%, an 86.5% improvement.
Considering the frequency of user errors leading to security incidents, the productivity decline and time invested in resolving and recovering from these incidents, potential regulatory penalties, and erosion of customer trust and reputation, the ability to prevent 86% of such incidents is pivotal, making the distinction between flourishing and facing business closure.
