State of the Cyber-Security Awareness Training Market: 2017 - Research and Markets

The "Security Awareness Training" report from Nemertes Research has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The recent success of Ransomware as a Service (RaaS) attacks has thousands of companies facing systematized extortion. The enterprise facing the decision of whether to pay or not to pay can usually thank an unaware employee - even a CEO - who fell victim to the oldest cybersecurity ruse, the phishing email.

The best defense against cybersecurity threats is a security-aware culture that permeates the entire organization and which touches anyone on the network - from the board to the lowest intern. For this culture to reach beyond the IT security team, enterprises must implement targeted and sustained security awareness training. Best-of-the-best security organizations consistently rate security awareness training as a top challenge. Yet when it comes to budgeting, companies often give training short shrift.

The training budget and other factors will influence how a company approaches training. Whether a company develops an in-house security awareness training program or opts to outsource to a third party, the steps must remain the same: assess, plan, develop, implement, monitor and maintain.
