Why do Governments Need Security Awareness Training?
Government agencies, councils and local authorities have become a particularly lucrative target for malicious cybercriminals, due to the vast amount of information they handle and reduced IT budgets.
Basic cyber hygiene and anti-virus software is no longer sufficient to protect governments and councils from such serious attacks. A cyber attack can have crippling consequences for many governments and local authorities, from disrupting vital services to reputational damage. As such, it is important that government bodies continuously review, refresh and reinforce their approach to cyber security awareness training to protect their employees and their organisation from malicious attacks.
