Webroot® Security Awareness Training recently earned the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) Certification for Cyber Security Programs after passing through its rigorous certification process. The 500k+ strong local and state workforce will now benefit from the security trainings, phishing simulators and interactive campaigns we offer.

Texas can expect real results from adding Webroot® Security Awareness Training to its roster of certified programs. Customer data shows regular phishing simulations can reduce click-through by up to 72% and a 20% reduction in malware incidents when trainings are used in conjunction with endpoint security.

The extra layer of defense our trainings bring comes at a critical time in cybersecurity. Ransomware, phishing scams, and data breaches are surging. And the move to hybrid work environments has created new network vulnerabilities and a blurring of the lines between personal and work devices.

With knowledge a critical component of defending against security incidents, ongoing trainings help improve cyber resilience. But going beyond just knowledge acquisition is an important step as well. Designed to form security habits and change behaviors, our approach empowers end users to identify and prevent modern cyberattacks while also fulfilling regulatory compliance requirements.

The Texas DIR looks for education programs that teach best practices and help users spot an incoming attack. With our ongoing trainings equipping users with the knowledge needed to protect their networks, we’re looking forward to helping make sure cyber criminals think twice before they try to mess with Texas.
