[Infographic] MSPs benefit from Security Awareness Training

Webroot recently surveyed more than 200 MSPs around the world to gauge their phishing awareness and learn about their clicking habits. We thought this was important to do because of the pervasive misconception that endpoint security and a firewall are sufficient protection from online threats. But cyberattacks are increasingly interpersonal affairs, and hacking the human is often a more surefire path to success for cybercriminals.

The results of our study show that, while there's still a need for awareness of that fact, many organizations are catching on. Here's what the data tell us about the problem and how it could be solved.

I’m surprised the percentage isn’t higher.

at least the 71% shows they knew they should not have clicked and are lying to the survey.

The security awareness training tool in Webroot is a good feature, but translating the examples is very cumbersome.

We are finding that with the newer requirements of Cyber Insurance, that Security Awareness Training is more and more becoming an insurance requirement. We also use these sorts of infographics for sales material in selling managed security services.

I just found a old  emailmessage from 2005 from chief Oempaloempa of a tribe in Kenia. I wonder if he still has the same emailaddress.

Agreed. We keep getting asked to assist clients with their Insurance and SAT is always on the list. Most insurance providers even state that antivirus alone is worthless for protection.
