Cybersecurity Training: Avoid the Routine
eBook by Brainier

This free item is only available for logged in members.


Cybersecurity training has quickly and quietly become a mainstay for required training programs at many organizations. As more employees find their jobs require some form of technology and data management, the need for proper training on how to keep company records safe becomes apparent. One industry estimate claims that the average employee in the US maintains 70 to 80 passwords for various systems throughout the course of their job. Without proper vigilance, it seems like only a matter of time before there is an exposure to a data breach.

Complicating this issue is the strategy around learning objectives for cybersecurity training. Because it is so commonly viewed as an annual event, and so much of it is a refresher, engagement with the material is stereotypically low. Learning leaders should pay attention to strategy here. If training feels like a simple box-checking exercise that lacks meaningful updates or is delivered in a rote style, their employees are likely not to retain the information.

Data and system architects can only do so much. Every employee with access to systems with sensitive data is inherently playing a role in safeguarding that data. And, just as the technology is always changing to maintain that security against new and developing threats, so too should the training efforts.

In this eBook, we focus on how organizations can update their strategy to deliver more engaging and effective cybersecurity training.

Topics include:
  • Avoiding routine delivery
  • Industries with specific challenges in cybersecurity training
  • Creating conversations on best practices
  • Tracking certifications in the LMS
  • Understanding the costs of doing nothing
