IT Security Tip #40:
Basic Cybersecurity Training

Think fast: what’s the first thing you do after realizing you just replied to the e-mail from the Nigerian prince wanting to give you a sum of $34 million? Okay, you most likely didn’t reply to that…but the concept still remains. Do you know what to do immediately upon discovering a virus, e-mail threat or other cybersecurity issue?

You need to have step-by-step instructions about what to do if employees believe they have witnessed a cyber-incident. Training needs to happen NOW – not when the problem is happening. A simple training program can be very effective. Things like physically disconnecting the machine from the network (or the power from the machine), notifying us of any suspicious e-mails or unusual activity and what to do if you lose your mobile device are all parts of a simple yet effective employee cybersecurity plan. Give us a call if we help you develop your plan.

This Tuesday Tidbits series is one great way to keep your employees informed, but you STILL need a good AUP in place and training. If you’d like our help in creating one for your company, based on best practices, call us at (608) 755-1524. You’ll be glad you did.
