Online cyber security training
August 2, 2019
The National Cyber Security Centre have released an online cyber security training package for staff working within small and medium businesses.
There is so much cyber security advice available these days, many people find it hard to know where to start. Some organisations struggle to explain why cyber security is something that all staff should care about. Even larger organisations (with dedicated training resources) find it difficult to explain the technical aspects of cyber security in ways that are relevant to their staff, so that they can help keep their organisations (and themselves) safe from cyber attack.
Equally, many SMEs and charities may not have the resources to put any cyber security policies and training in place at all, leaving staff exposed as their frontline defence against cyber attacks.
For these reasons, the NCSC has produced a new e-learning training package: ‘Stay Safe Online: Top Tips for Staff’. 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.
