Enter Gamified Training
In an age where cyber threats loom large, the success of your cybersecurity strategy is deeply intertwined with your people and the quality of their training. South African companies are projected to invest a substantial R11 billion in cybersecurity by 2025, as highlighted in the IDC whitepaper on “Cybersecurity: A Digital Transformation Imperative.”
It is important to note that cybersecurity is not just about technology or systems; it’s about the people who use them. While the significance of this investment is undeniable, its effectiveness hinges on one crucial factor: the training of your employees. No company can afford to overlook the human element in its cybersecurity strategy.
How often have we witnessed the best-laid cybersecurity plans crumble due to inadequate user engagement and understanding? Cybersecurity is not just about installing firewalls and anti-virus software; it’s about creating a workforce that is vigilant, knowledgeable, and equipped to counteract cyber threats. This is where the power of gamified training comes into play.
Signify Software’s cybersecurity training is designed to make this awareness not only informative but also engaging. The gamified training takes employees through realistic cyber scenarios, allowing them to apply their knowledge in a risk-free environment. Through gameplay, participants learn to identify threats, respond effectively, and safeguard organisation’s sensitive data and systems.
The IDC whitepaper, commissioned by Microsoft and based on a survey of 186 IT leaders, highlights the pressing need for South African companies to address cybersecurity concerns comprehensively. And even for South African companies, it’s not just about the colossal financial investment; it’s about ensuring that these investments translate into real protection through the collective behaviour of well-trained employees.
So, what’s the game-changing question? How do you ensure your people wholeheartedly back up your substantial investment with their actions?
