Curricula, an Atlanta based security company, is offering a free training in Cybersecurity for Small and Medium Business (SMBs) employees. The security awareness training will be offered in a virtual mode designed to defend organizations holding an employee count of over 1000 employees.
So, companies small and medium can take the help of the awareness program to help their companies defend their computer networks against the growing cyber threats such as ransomware, phishing and Ddos attacks.
Curricula’s training material includes training content, phishing simulator, ransomware awareness playbook, compliance related education and reporting and a customized content creator to get back knowledge based feedback from the trained employees- all critical components in building up Information Security program.
“An enormous gap has been witnessed in the industry regarding cybersecurity as none are interested in offering security training to companies having less than 500-1000 employees. We have taken a step forward to help all those organizations with effective training material that could help in embracing the employees in building a security culture”, said Nick Santora, the CEO of Curricula.
Curricula’s aim is to help companies in proactively improving their security posture than to take knee-jerk steps after a data breach or a cyber attack impact.
Now, to those who need a bit of enlightenment on why SMBs act as attractive targets for cyber criminals- here’s gist-
- Often, such organizations do not have cybersecurity specialists on the payrolls
- Employees of such organizations often lack the basic knowledge on following a security hygiene
- Often lack the right budget to deploy threat monitoring solutions
- Cannot secure endpoints
- Often lack risk awareness and management policies and procedures
- Neglect the need to have a backup and disaster recovery solution in place
