The Easy Answer to IT Security Training
Cybersecurity is a big issue these days. I don’t think I have to tell you that. It is in the headlines almost every day. One huge aspect of cybersecurity is that hackers are going after companies and trying to defraud them all the time. They do this through ransomware, stealing sensitive company data, social engineering, phishing attacks or a combination of these techniques. And they do this for one reason – it is profitable.
Here is a statistic that you are probably not aware of – 71% of data breaches occur in small and medium sized businesses. SMB data breaches typically don’t make headlines, but the results can be disastrous. For instance, read this article about what happened to a trucking company in Texas.
Obviously, at CTO Networks, we want to prevent anything like this happening to your firm. So how can we stop this? The common thread in the vast majority of attacks point to the weakest link in your IT network… your employees. According to a 2014 IBM study, 95% of breaches are caused by human error.
As your IT service provider, you entrust me with managing and securing your network. One of my responsibilities is to stay on top of current trends and issues and figure out how to best address them with my clients. I have concluded that they best way to minimize the “human impact” mentioned above is through IT security training.
So I am offering IT security training to you at NO COST*. I have incurred this expense and will absorb it to my bottom line. I want to improve the value of the services I am providing to you and want to make sure we tackle this important issue head on.
I ask only one thing in return – that you mandate your employees take the IT security training and quiz. It does not take very long, and the time investment is well worth it. Both of us will benefit from this.
Please get back to me at your convenience so that we can discuss how to roll this out to your employees.
