Proper user training improves security

According to Forbes, cybersecurity spending will reach $123 billion in 2020. So far, it focuses on five areas:

  • Security services
  • Infrastructure protection
  • Network security equipment
  • Identity access management
  • Consumer security software

Companies cannot work without these practices and investments. However, that $123 billion could become useless if employees are not helping to keep your company safe.

Of course, there are hackers who have the technical knowledge to bypass your network security. They are not as common as you may think though. In fact, one of the easiest ways to access your system is through social engineering. Social engineering takes advantage of the human element in your business. It leverages emotion and a lack of knowledge to get into your network.

Social engineering takes the form of emails or text messages with bad links. It may also appear as phone calls with scammers trying to convince the end user to reveal private data. So, while you may have the latest technology with the right settings, if your team does not know how to identify a phishing attack, a hacker can walk right in and put their malware on your computers.


Cybersecurity teams must stay alert and protected 100% of the time, but attackers only have to find a way in once. So, what is the missing piece? Proper end user security awareness training. And IT Architechs can help you identify the right training procedures and create protocols to best shield your business from threats.

Strengthen the weakest link

Spending a large amount of money on a vault to keep your money safe will have little effect if someone provides a thief the key to get in. The same idea is true of cybersecurity.

If an employee downloads a malware program onto your system simply by clicking on an innocent-looking, but bad link or document, an attacker can sneak right in. Hackers spend a lot of time studying you and your business. So, they know exactly who to target and how to get their attention. A simple email with a touching story or tempting offer with a link to get a fake prize could cause real harm to your business.

But you can turn the weakest link in the chain (the human element) into a strong tool in your defense system. We can help you teach your employees about what to look for in a suspicious email. We can also help you set a security policy against opening emails from unknown senders.

These simple steps can stop many attacks. In fact, recent reports indicate that companies that have a security awareness program are up to 10 times more secure than those without one.

Why you need to prioritize cybersecurity

End user security awareness training can protect your company from data breaches, but privacy and security are not the only things at stake. According to CNBC, 43% of cyberattacks are aimed at small businesses. This ends up costing an average of $200,000 per incident. Also, only three out of 10 employees got annual cybersecurity awareness training in 2019. This could be why attacks against small- to medium-sized businesses are so successful.

Further, it is important to note that you could endure more consequences after the attack. You may face fines, loss of trust by customers or investors, and more.
