Have Problems with Cybersecurity Training? You’re Not Alone

Have Problems with Cybersecurity Training? You’re Not Alone

You might wonder how your business can possibly stand up to the countless cybersecurity threats out there, as even with training for your employees, it seems likely that something bad will happen eventually. This defeatist attitude isn’t necessarily productive, and it’s actually one that your team might embody if you don’t frame your training in the right way. Let’s look at some ways you should not bring up cybersecurity training and why you might be inadvertently sinking your successes.

Some People Just Don’t Want to Listen

Do you have anyone in your life that you simply cannot tell to do anything without some kind of pushback? Employees value autonomy, and when they don’t have it, they might put up barriers to any attempts you make to take it away with mandatory training. If you change how you approach the cybersecurity conversation, they might be more willing to listen—especially if they think it’s for their own good rather than yours or the business’.

Some Might Be Too Busy

When people are too focused on doing their jobs to focus on security, they might accidentally let something slip and stir up some trouble for your security team. Sometimes, those set in their ways and just trying to get through the day make impulsive decisions that could ultimately put your business at risk. You can rely on hackers to find these situations and exploit them.

Some Could Not Care Less

While it is nice to think that your team will do everything they can to keep your business secure, the sad reality is that there will always be those who simply don’t care or those who think that it’s not their responsibility. This behavior should not be tolerated, especially when security means the future of the business. Your employees either need to comply or leave; these are the only two viable options.

Granted, you can make it easier for them to comply by ensuring they understand the importance of training and how it’s good for them to care about your company’s security. Consider believing in your employees’ capacity to grow and learn rather than assuming your employees do not care about security. Of course, if they have been trained and still scoff at your attempts, that’s a major red flag, but you can usually chalk it up to ignorance rather than flat-out malice.

Accucom can help your business build a solid training regimen that is comprehensive enough to keep your business safe. We can also help you test it out and reinforce it over time. To learn more, call us at (02) 8825-5555.
