In the article “Fortify Your Defenses with Employee Cyber Safety Training,” Workest shared what employers can do to prevent cyberattacks. The publication reached out to privacy, cybersecurity & data strategy partner Ken Dort for insight on cybersecurity training.
Dort noted that employee cybersecurity training doesn’t have its own set of standards, but that training usually falls under certification protocols, such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) or Communications Information Software (CIS). Dort outlined what cybersecurity training typically addresses based on these protocols.
“The overall goal here is to make the employees sensitive to the employer’s data security obligations and considerations, thereby increasing the employer’s ability to fend off hacking attacks and other wrongful conduct and minimizing the risks of data loss,” Dort said.
