Cybersecurity training is one of the best defenses against cyber attacks targeting organizations and individuals alike. Although security training is a tried-and-true defense against cyber attacks and data breaches, security training is not one-size-fits all. Every organization faces unique threats based on their industry, cybersecurity tools and security policies and protocols. Every individual employee is challenged with different threats depending on their roles and responsibilities. And to add another level of complexity, each employee differs in their level of security awareness and ability to recognize and report attacks or suspicious activities.
