Empower IT professionals to build secure behaviors

Cyber security is a prevalent topic in today’s society, with an increased emphasis on fostering a robust security mindset among all members of an organization, rather than solely focusing on safeguarding digital assets. IT professionals play a pivotal role in this context. Their responsibilities extend beyond strengthening a company’s cyber defense; they also serve as guides for promoting enhanced online security practices among their colleagues.

Recognizing the significance of providing tailored cybersecurity education for IT professionals, SoSafe has developed a comprehensive series of lessons exclusively designed for this audience. Considering their crucial position and influence within the organization, IT professionals not only face the risk of being targeted by cyber threats but also possess the ability to shape the cybersecurity practices of others. Our objective is to equip them with the necessary knowledge and tools to effectively navigate this intricate landscape.

How can role-based training help to build secure behaviors?

General cyber security training is undoubtedly important. However, the broad approach is often perceived as less relevant by IT professionals, who deal with specific threats and challenges. Our lessons are tailored to sensitize them regarding their daily duties, making the content highly relevant and engaging. 

Highlights of our lessons

Our engaging lessons aim to install secure behavior amongst IT admins and equip them with the knowledge to protect key company accounts. We focus on awareness rather than technicalities. By understanding the risks associated with behaviors such as leaving devices unlocked, clicking links without checking, posting sensitive information online, or noting down login information, IT admins can act as cybersecurity champions within their organizations.

Additionally, we emphasize the importance of secure authentication and protection methods, such as the use of multi-factor authentication (MFA), biometric systems, password managers, and the creation of unique complex passwords.

Furthermore, we demonstrate how IT admins can positively influence non-tech employees towards a more secure behavior. This includes encouraging a culture of security, being patient and understanding when answering support requests, and explaining the relevance of implemented security measures, such as MFA or secure cloud storage.
