Almost all major cyber incidents started with an unsuspecting individual opening yet another e-mail, using the same password over and over again or similar actions that many of us still do on a daily basis. It is, therefore, imperative that each organisation is determined to enhance the cyber hygiene skills of its employees and those of its suppliers.
At CybExer, we have developed a software platform that can be used (among other things) for cyber hygiene e-learning and risk assessment. This tool enables all employees to learn and then test their cyber hygiene skills. At the end of a session, the individual receives a risk assessment that indicates the level of risk related to different areas of cyber hygiene. Importantly, these individual risk assessments can be aggregated in many different ways to identify the risk level of a particular department, the whole organisation or some specific, individual employees. Based on the risk assessment, both the individual and the organisation can take the necessary steps to address these risk areas.
In addition to customised corporate offering for both on-premise and on-cloud solutions, CybExer has launched a free public version at mycyberhygiene.com. It offers the cyber hygiene module in more than 12 languages.
