This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. According to Verizon’s 2023 Data Breach Investigations Report, 74 percent of all security breaches include a human element. That’s why Wasatch Security Awareness was created — to provide cybersecurity training to businesses and their employees. Founder Matt Groves joins us with more.

Matt Groves: 
Your company’s employees are both the biggest target and the best defense against a cyber attack. At Wasatch Security Awareness, we are determined to educate your end users to become smarter than the digital threats they will inevitably face.

When we work with businesses, we use a simple training process to ensure each organization gets the personalized education they need. First, we collaborate with management to create a human intelligence training plan. We then test employees with a customized “spear phishing” email that mimics techniques used by cybercriminals. Based on the test’s results, Wasatch Security Awareness provides customized training to help businesses become more secure.

On average, 24 percent of employees click a link inside their first spear fishing test, and 19 percent enter a username and password. But with training and practice, we can help your employees be your company’s first defense against cybercriminals.

Derek Miller:
Whether you’re a small, local business or a large corporation, your employees can benefit from cybersecurity training. Visit the Wasatch Security Awareness website for more information. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
