Stop cyberattacks in their tracks. Test your team’s knowledge on training delivered in onboarding, on the job, or in any other meeting with this free cybersecurity quiz.
One of the biggest threats to your business is often on the device that your teams use everyday. From data breaches to ransomware, cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated and are finding new ways for your teams to make simple mistakes that could threaten your business operations and data. If your teams are uninformed about the capabilities of hackers, a moment can cost you – loss of confidential client data, defacement of websites, or identity theft could result in a decline in consumer confidence, reputational damage, fines, lawsuits or even bankruptcy. No matter what industry you’re in, a mistake as simple as an employee opening a link or attachment from a hacker with a similar email to someone in your organization or using an easily guess-able password can affect your organization’s security.
Social engineering attacks have overtaken malware as the preferred method of compromising data by cybercriminals. A recent study showed that a whopping 76% of businesses experienced phishing attacks in 2018. The assumption can sometimes be that in the event of a malicious attack, only systems and technology will be impacted, but that is far from the case. If preventative action is not taken, the damage to your business can be significant. That’s why we’ve put together this editable cybersecurity quiz to ensure that your teams are fully informed on the latest social engineering attacks and know your organization’s cybersecurity best practices.
With this cybersecurity quiz, you can identify what parts of your organization’s cybersecurity practices your team members are less familiar with and close these knowledge gaps so your team can easily implement them. This knowledge is critical for protecting your organization from cybercrime, as it teaches them how to recognize common cyberattacks, prevent cyberattacks from happening, and know who to reach out to in case of a cyberattack. With this reinforcement of your organization’s cybersecurity protocols, your employees will feel more confident and empowered, and are less likely to make mistakes that may allow a data breach. This will improve the overall security of your business.
Not only can reinforcing this essential training mitigate business risk, it also helps ensure that your organization is compliant with government regulations. This quiz allows you to track the progress of employees and identify any individuals who may require additional training. For team members that require additional regular refresher training, you’ll also have the option to deliver the cybersecurity quiz to them in bite-sized chunks, at regular intervals. This allows your team to reinforce their knowledge at their own pace, making them more likely to recall what they learned sooner than if they were to have completed a one-off training program. And the best part is that your teams can access this fire safety quiz on their preferred device whenever they have 5 minutes to spare – whether that’s on their commute, in between tasks, or before they finish up for the day.
