Building strong defenses!

What is Cybersecurity Awareness Training?
With all the investments organizations make to implement technical controls and policies to safeguard their information, one aspect which is often over looked is communicating the policies and best practices to the employees. One wrong action or an innocent misstep from a user may trigger an absolute havoc and negate all the efforts taken to protect information. Further, employees and senior IT managers need to be continuously updated on the latest threats that emerge, as well as the means to tackle any eventuality in a constantly fluctuating technological scenario.

Approach and Offerings
One of the reasons participants forget the training concepts, is because most organizations create training programs based on their needs, instead of thinking of employee needs, applicability and the emerging scenarios. Similarly, Cybersecurity awareness must focus on how to detect dangerous situations and communicate appropriate approaches. Paramount concentrates on ‘The essentials of successful training’
- To know what you want to gain (learn/change),

Outcome and Delivery
Ignorantia Legis Neminem Excusat (Latin for ‘ignorance of the law excuses no one’) is a legal principle stating that a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because he or she was unaware of its content. Having assimilated this, corporates need to do more to enable employees to understand applicable policies as people continue to be the weakest link in any chain.
Our systematic and holistic approach is designed to fill this gap and ensure the best outcome for any organization. With a bouquet of offerings and proven industry expertise, we are your sure partner for success.
