It’s well established that most successful cyberattacks are made possible in part by human error. Simply stated, employees are the weakest link in any firm’s cybersecurity defenses. While firewalls and other threat protection solutions may stave off some attacks, highly skilled cybercriminals can still exploit the human element through phishing attempts and other social engineering attacks. If your employees can recognize these threats when they pop up in their inboxes and act accordingly, you can stop these attacks before they begin. That’s where our employee security training can help you.

IT Radix will work with your team to develop and deliver employee cybersecurity training and testing services with the specific goals of your company in mind. These proven, hands-on cybersecurity training programs will give your workforce the insight and critical eye needed to spot and prevent social engineering attacks. Remember, companies with continuous cybersecurity training are less susceptible to successful attacks.
