Why is workforce training important? 

Unequivocally, the number one organizational cybersecurity vulnerability is employee error. Occasionally, there may be embedded agents that take a job with an organization with the primary purpose of stealing company secrets, but those situations are rare. 

Most of the time, a phishing or social engineering attack is unknowingly enabled by an employee. SecurityMetrics Workforce and Security Training is a great way to prevent the majority of security breaches by training employees on data security and compliance regulations. 

Why SecurityMetrics Workforce Training?

Employee error is the top organizational vulnerability. To help mitigate this vulnerability, SecurityMetrics offers comprehensive training for PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA, and Data Security. These trainings are designed to protect data, avoid employee actions that might lead to compromise, and comply with security guidelines. 

Through extensive material, interactive quizzes, engaging examples, and practical applications, SecurityMetrics Workforce and Security Training helps improve employee understanding of best practices in cybersecurity, gives your employees the training they need through role-based courses, and allows you to complete up to 12% of your SAQ for PCI compliance.

How Does SecurityMetrics Training work? 

SecurityMetrics Training is customizable so that you can meet the needs of your employees and business in the most efficient way possible. Simply purchase a SecurityMetrics Workforce and Security Training product and assign each of your seats to the training your employees need. 

For example, if you have some employees that need PCI training while other employees need GDPR training, you can choose which training to assign each employee. You can then monitor your employees’ training completion and renewal deadlines. SecurityMetrics Training also has options for accessibility support and closed captions. 

To provide the best service and stay ahead of threat actors, SecurityMetrics Workforce and Security Training uses the most current information on cybersecurity standards and requirements. The cybersecurity and compliance world changes quickly as threat actors find new ways to exploit environments. SecurityMetrics Training is designed to keep up with and minimize these risks.
