Security Awareness Operations and Tactics

CryptoForensics’ Security Awareness Operations offerings enable organizations to prepare employees to fend against cyber and social engineering attacks. We can assess an organization’s current information security awareness training programs, design new programs, and provide specialized training to address areas of greatest concern to the organization. Going beyond compliance, CryptoForensics Security Awareness Training Solutions are focused on changing employee behavior in order to reduce the risk to your organization. Our service offerings here include:

• Security Awareness Needs Assessment
Your organization may have specific gaps in your information security awareness program. CryptoForensics can carry out a comprehensive analysis of the current state and effectiveness of your IT security awareness training programs and offer advice on how to make it more effective based on best practices and the expert advice of security awareness subject matter experts. The CryptoForensics Security Awareness Needs Assessment service helps cybersecurity leaders build a culture of security awareness by identifying security awareness gaps in the organization’s current Security Awareness Program.

• Security Awareness Program Development and Training
When it comes to cybersecurity and protecting your valuable information assets, one size does not fit all! Training employees to understand the risk they create for your organization when they don’t consider information security in their day-to-day activities is a challenge for most IT and IT security organizations. CryptoForensics can help design and implement an organization specific Information Security Awareness Program tailored specifically for your organization based on best practices and the expert advice of our information security awareness subject matter experts.

Changing behavior is always difficult, especially when security awareness programs lack a well defined approach and dedicated resources to Internet and network security training for employees. In addition, many security awareness programs do not test employees using real world cyber-threats, nor do they design and deploy a curriculum that best suits areas of greatest risk. Typical benefits of CryptoForensics’ customized Security Awareness Training Program:

  • Implement a comprehensive Security Awareness Program to change employee behavior
  • Adapt training and testing to areas and employees of greatest risk
  • Create efficiencies through your security awareness initiatives
  • Measure improvement in employee vigilance over time
  • Reduce the number of employee clicks on malicious emails
  • Respond to fewer cyber security incidents

• Social Engineering, Phishing Testing & Training
Heighten employee information security awareness against phishing attacks through testing and learning reinforcement, and reduce risk posed by your employees. For typical organizations, employees represent the weakest link in any information security and defense-in-depth strategy. Unfortunately, most Security Awareness Training Programs fail to test employees using real world threats that can both measure employee susceptibility to phishing attacks and reinforce learning at the same time.

The CryptoForensics social engineering and phishing training service provides fully managed testing, analysis, and reporting on employee responses to simulated phishing attacks. The service combines phishing testing with innovative point-of-click to reinforce information security awareness and learning, and ultimately, change employee behavior. Typical methods and benefits include:

  • Perform phishing and spear phishing testing based on real world threats
  • Test and train employees with immediate feedback through “teachable moments”
  • Measure improvement in employee vigilance over time
  • Get an independent assessment of employee susceptibility to phishing attacks
  • Use testing results to adapt testing to areas and employees of greatest risk
  • Reduce the number of employee clicks on malicious emails

Today, most enterprises try to deal with cybersecurity threats by focusing inwardly through conducting vulnerability assessments, making detailed network maps, and in some cases, deploying robust patch management processes to continuously monitor their networks and systems. While this approach provides some benefits, against many cyber threats it's ineffective. Most corporate networks are so large and complex that it's simply too difficult to identify all of their assets, or all of their vulnerabilities, and patch them fast enough. Today's cyber wrongdoers are sophisticated, well-funded, and patient—they use a wide range of techniques to penetrate even well-protected enterprises...
