Ambersail Aware. Keeping Your Staff Security Conscious Is As Important As Securing Your Networks.
A great deal more effort and time is now spent educating staff on how to be more security aware. This pays dividends as people start to think and behave differently.
It is not just about spotting suspicious emails. It extends to physical security. Being confident in asking why people are working in restricted areas. Identifying people tailgating into buildings. Querying suspicious telephone callers asking for information.
If you are looking to get your staff more security aware, we have training and compliance related services:
- GDPR Awareness.
- Cyber Fraud And Phishing Awareness.
- PCI DSS Self Assessment Pack.
- Cyber Essentials Compliance.
- PCI DSS Policy Pack.

Questions Frequently Asked By People…
This is a widely held view.
On the face of it, it makes complete sense. Use automated filtering and alerting software to screen out messages that appear to be malicious. These messages never arrive in staff inboxes so the risk of people clicking on links and attachments is removed.
This method will work for the majority of unsophisticated communications sent through.
However, attackers now understand there are great rewards to be had by targeting staff directly. They are willing to spend more time profiling and developing sophisticated communications. Messages that are designed to evoke a response and more likely to result in a ‘click’ on a link or attachment.
Automation is great – but it also encourages lazy thinking.
People expect that automated measures protect them and they stop being diligent. When that happens, the risk from introducing malicious software to an organisation increases exponentially. Cyber Security Awareness training really helps reinforce security behaviours to combat fraud, ransomware and phishing attacks.
It does not matter how large or small your organisation is. How closely you work together. You will be a potential target for fraud attacks such as ransomware.
Remember that messages are designed to evoke an immediate response. To deceive and get the recipient to act by clicking or opening an attachment.
Often, an attachment is opened and the damage done long before people realise and can warn colleagues. The knowledge that cyber security awareness training provides acts as a first line of defence.
