Boost your Cyber Defenses with Awareness Training  Watch out for Holiday Scams

Boost your Cyber Defenses with Awareness Training Watch out for Holiday Scams

November 30, 2022 (11:00 a.m.)

Social engineering is the biggest cybersecurity threat, and involves the human factor. Your municipality should view Cyber Awareness training seriously and encourage participation. There's a common misconception that only non-technical or naïve individuals would fall victim to social engineering and phishing scams.

CYBER awareness training educates employees on how to identify the various tactics and signs of social engineering. Since the attacks continue to evolve, ongoing training for your employees is crucial to keep them aware of the latest social engineering ploys. Keeping ahead of holiday phishing threats makes this webinar a must!

Training will review:

  • A variety of social engineering techniques
  • Recent scams
  • How to spot telltale signs of phishing attacks
  • How to evaluate if a web address is legitimate
  • MFA Scams
  • NYMIR Cyber Resources available

End users must be taught how to recognize signs of social engineering, how to mitigate the attacks, and how to appropriately report so the threats can be better mitigated and tracked.

 If social engineering is the biggest cybersecurity threat, and it is, should it not be treated and mitigated as such? Make sure your municipality takes Cyber Awareness seriously and does the appropriate training to significantly reduce risk
