Cybersecurity Employee Training
Chris May's Cybersecurity Employee Training

In the modern, digital world, your employees are the last line of defense standing between cybercriminals and your bottom line. From ransomware to identity theft, criminals have mastered any number of ways to monetize lax cybersecurity. All they need is one employee with a simple password, a missing security update or disabled anti-virus and your data, your clients data and your entire network is compromised.

That’s why we’ve created our Cybersecurity Employee Training, a one hour presentation that covers all the fundamentals of cybersecurity. And we did the impossible with it. We made it both comprehensive and easily accessible by non-techies. That’s right, at Advantage Technology, we’re just that good.
