Webroot® Security Awareness Training

Taking the effort out of cybersecurity education while maximizing your ability to keep your business and staff secure.

What is security awareness training?

Security awareness training is ongoing education that provides employees relevant information and tests of their cyber-awareness by covering all aspects of data security and regulatory compliance. It is a proven way of changing risky employee IT behaviors that can lead to security compromises—including financial, intellectual property, customer trust and other major data losses—and increases businesses’ resilience against attacks.

These may include how to avoid phishing and other types of social engineering cyberattacks, spot potential malware behaviors, report possible security threats, follow company IT policies and best practices, and adhere to any applicable data privacy and compliance regulations (GDPR, PCI DSS, HIPAA, etc.)

Why businesses need security awareness training

Although businesses may feel their employees wouldn’t be fooled by something like a phishing scam, cybercriminals still use this attack method because it continues to be successful. In fact, the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations report revealed that 93% of successful security breaches start with phishing.

With regular training for employees that includes phishing simulations, courses on IT and security best practices, and data protection and compliance training, businesses can significantly reduce risk, decrease infections and related help desk costs, protect their reputation by experiencing fewer breaches, and secure their overall cybersecurity investment.

Why Webroot Security Awareness Training is different

Proven efficacy

Phishing and credential theft are the number one1 tactics used in breaches, with user error being more common than malware as the causal factor. With computer-based training, you can significantly change the odds, with click rates dropping by up to 50%2 after just 12 lessons.2

Current, relevant and effective education

Training on an ongoing and continuous basis ensures employees are kept up to date on the latest methods of attack, so they stay informed and you stay out of any headlines. Webroot is constantly developing, adapting and adding new training content at least monthly and often more frequently.

Microsoft® Azure AD onboarding and auto-enrollment

Webroot’s Microsoft® Azure AD app is all you need to easily link Active Directory for automatic maintenance of the employees including new starters and leavers. Auto-enrollment means setting relevant and ongoing training programs for starters or any group of employees is straightforward and less time-consuming.

Engaging, interactive courses

Succinct, easily consumed courses increase employee attentiveness and the overall effectiveness of cybersecurity education programs. More than 60 of Webroot’s current training courses take 10 minutes or less to complete and all involve the employee by being informative and interactive.

Regulatory compliance included

Does your business take credit card payments? Is it part of a regulated industry? Then its necessary to educate employees to avoid being fined (or worse). Webroot® Security Awareness Training includes compliance training at no extra cost for SEC, FINRA, PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, and other regulations.

Fully customizable phishing simulator

Webroot offers 200+ and growing realistic phishing simulations that let you test and measure real-world employee cyber-awareness and training effectiveness. Results allow you to direct further campaigns to employees as needed, while our built-in template editor lets you modify or create email lures for even the savviest users.

Trackable, customizable campaigns

Measuring individual and overall success is key to both business and the employee participation. Webroot’s console with its built-in learning management software (LMS) keeps track of participation, automatically sends reminders and schedules executive reporting, making every training campaign fully accountable and measurable.

Campaign and contact management

Our campaign management wizard, contact manager, email templates, course library and reporting center let you schedule and assign training efficiently.

Reporting Center

Activity reports can be shared with management to measure progress, risk score and ROI. Training reports show user progress, so accountability and value are always clear.

“Small to midsized enterprises that want an easy-to-use phishing simulation platform should engage Webroot.”
