Did you know?

PrimoConnect's Online IT Cyber Security Awareness Training was written by our CISO...former IT security trainer to the US military and incredibly highly accredited and experienced ethical hacker! Real-life training in plain English for non-techie employees - to encourage secure practices and protect your business.

What is Social Engineering?

Most of the data breaches you read about in the news today start off with an attack vector referred to as Social Engineering. Unsuspecting users are being targeted with phone calls, phishing, spear phishing, portable media and other types of attacks in order to gain access to corporate networks. The majority of IT users have not attended cyber security courses, have no technical background, little or no IT security training and are unaware of the techniques and methods hackers use to target them.

  • Millions of people are targeted with phishing and spear-phishing attacks on a daily basis

  • It only takes one wrong click or user action to have the whole organisation compromised

  • Attackers use Email, Phone calls, Impersonation, Portal Media, QR Codes and other vectors

Did you know?

Most IT security training and cyber security courses focus on just email phishing because it is an industry buzz phrase to make a quick buck...but PrimoConnect's Online IT Cyber Security Training for staff is the most thorough course on the market! Email phishing is covered in just one of our 10 modules! 2.5 hours of video and multiple-choice questions covering everything from home devices, to working on a cafe's WiFi, to your identity (not to mention all the 'in the office' and 'working from home' tips and tricks).

This training was an eye opener. Not only did it change my approach to network security, but also I am a lot more cautious when getting online at home

This class sharpened our senses around portable media and the dangers of merely plugging a USB in! It's been useful for all our employees.
