A technology partner is someone who is invested in the success of your company and who helps you manage your present and future technology issues before they become serious problems. This means they are there to provide assistance with anything from future upgrades to safety preparation.When it comes to safety, security awareness training is one of the most important steps on making sure your company is prepared for anything. After all, your worst enemy is ignorance in the modern era, so preparing for any and every hazard that you may run across is the smartest thing you could do.Here are just a few of the ways that your technology partner can help with security awareness training.

1. Assess Needs and Content

You may not know how to approach security awareness training or when you should start setting up the training. It can be a daunting task to create and manage the training sessions on your own on top of your own workload and schedule. Where would you start, what should be taught, and how should it be taught?

This is the perfect time to utilize a technology partner. With the help of a technology partner, you can tap into their vast knowledge of technology and how to best protect yourself to create training that benefits everyone. They will be able to assess the needs of your company with your valued input and help create content behind the training while adhering to your needs and the needs of government regulations at the same time.

2. Scheduling and Directing

If you still don’t feel comfortable managing this yourself after the first stage, you may want to involve a partner in the following three stages to make sure everything runs smoothly out of the gate.

Your technology partner can help you create the right schedule to fit your company’s time constraints and help direct the execution of the training to alleviate your own stress.

Leave tech training to the professionals, and focus more on learning something new while putting it into practice.

3. Testing Effectiveness

How effective the security awareness training is depends on how it is presented, taught, and used in the workplace. Anyone can sit through a training session and claim they heard every point and know what to do when a phishing scheme arises, but there should be tests in place to make sure that everyone is on board. People should know how to handle these situations when they happen.

4. Tracking and Enforcing

Finally, have your technology partner help track the effectiveness of the training and how to best enforce it in the workplace. If the training doesn’t stick, maybe set up refresher courses to make sure everyone understands the dangers of cyberterrorism and how it can affect the business.

Using these steps, your technology partner has given your business the tools to succeed in the face of cyber adversity while solidifying the reliability of your business at the same time.
