Security Awareness Training and Darkweb Monitoring Services –

It’s imperative to protect workers from security breaches that could compromise data, shut down systems, decrease productivity and tank revenue. Our two-pronged approach makes your employees the frontline of cyber defense in addition to identifying, analyzing and proactively monitoring your organization’s systems. We’ll implement an integrated Security & Awareness Training program coupled with Dark Web Monitoring Services for ultimate protection.

  1. Implement Security Awareness & Training

Ninety percent of security breaches are inadvertent, unintentional and caused by human error. Therefore, it is so critical to make employees aware of security protocols, provide on-going training, monitor their actions and report vulnerabilities.  You may have the strongest most up-to-date security systems in place, but this will be a wasted investment if you don’t also train and test your staff. You can reduce your company’s risk by implementing security awareness training. For instance, phishing simulations, and interactive educational videos for additional in-depth training are all valuable components of this comprehensive service offering. Equip your employees with the knowledge and skills they need to protect themselves – and your business – from criminal elements.

  1. Invest in Dark Web Monitoring Services

Digital credentials, such as usernames and passwords that connect you and your employees to critical business applications, as well as online services, are among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web. You’ve probably heard, cyber attacks are on the rise; particularly among small and mid-sized businesses. As a result, 60% of all small/medium businesses will go out of business within 6 months of a cyber incident. However, Dark Web Monitoring offers a combination of human and sophisticated Dark Web intelligence with search capabilities.  We provide a full picture of your company’s security posture and potential risk.
