Employee security awareness: the first line of defence


Your organisation’s security is only as strong as its weakest link – and in many cases, that means your employees. By raising their awareness of cybercrime, you can turn them into your first line of defence.

Employees often represent the weakest link in an organisation’s security. According to Verizon’s 2023 Data Breaches Investigations Report, 74% of all security breaches can be traced back to human error. Phishing, clicking a malicious link, inadvertently sharing sensitive information or outright data leaks: these are all things that not only cause financial damage but also harm your company’s reputation.

To prevent security breaches, it is therefore crucial that your employees know when something is suspicious. You can enrol them in an awareness programme, which also teaches them how to react efficiently, meaning they are no longer the weakest link but the first line of defence against cyberattacks.

The Orange Managed Security Awareness Programme (MSAP) heightens your teams’ security awareness. The package includes:

  • Phishing simulations: Automated personalised phishing simulations teach your employees to identify phishing emails in a safe and simulated environment. The emails imitate local brands and are tailored to the employee to be as realistic as possible.
  • User awareness training: In short training sessions, your employees learn how to deal with different types of cyber threat. The training also includes a test to verify whether the information has been properly assimilated.
  • Detailed reports: You receive an overview of reported phishing emails for each employee, department, device or location, telling you at a glance where additional effort is needed.
  • Threat intelligence: You gain real-time insight into current and future cyber threats.

Alerting employees to the dangers will make them quicker to recognise suspicious situations, and security awareness training focuses on the importance of adhering to the right procedures. Increased security awareness is an investment in your employees and your company, as companies of all sizes will find themselves increasingly threatened by cybercrime in the future.
