Put Training to the Test
It's not good enough simply to train - organizations also need to stress test that training and track how effective it truly is at turning employees into the first line of defense for security. According to a recent study by IRONSCALES, while three in four organizations say they train their employees to spot phishing emails, less than half of those organizations report drops in phishing click rates as a result of that training.
'A security policy and security awareness training is a start, but you have to test your employees regularly with social engineering tactics to make sure that they are following policy and provide additional training when necessary,' says Colette Chamberland, director of information security for Defiant. 'Security operations don't start and end with with the security team, it requires the co-operation of everyone in the company.'
