Cybersecurity Education

The Overview

Cybersecurity education and awareness training is a core component of any model Cybersecurity Program and generally speaking, the underlying content and educational programs pertaining to the fundamental tenants of security awareness are widely available and ubiquitous.  However, registered investment advisers face specific cybersecurity risks, threat actors and attack vectors and also interact with their data sets in uniquely specific ways. The Align Cybersecurity Education solution is designed with investment advisers and the broader financial services firms in mind, incorporating both general and industry-specific training modules and phishing campaigns.  Cyber risk is fluid and ever-evolving; so too should the curricula for investment managers.

Cybersecurity Education Program Includes:

  • On-demand, easy to consume content with industry-specific training modules, curated by the Align Cybersecurity team.
  • Customized phishing campaigns, administered by the Align Cybersecurity team
  • Fully reportable with completion reports, proficiency reports and phishing campaign results.

The Benefits

  • Fulfill your regulatory requirements.  Demonstrating an ongoing cybersecurity education and training program for employees is a must-have, core control.
  • Remediation Training. If any employee(s) fails the test of any module, the solution will automatically assign remediation training.
  • Set and forget. The Align Cybersecurity team will coordinate all the training modules, phishing campaigns and generate and distribute all reports and related documentation.


The Importance of Understanding Cybersecurity

If your employees don't understand cybersecurity best practices, your business's data could be at serious risk. Having a well-educated employee base is your first defense against cyber attacks, so make sure they have a thorough understanding.
