Protect Your Business & Invest in Your People
Online Security Awareness Education
To meet the growing demands of the marketplace, we have created a simple, engaging, and easy to use Security Awareness Education program. We teach how to keep your computers and networks safe from the worst threat possible: uninformed, non-malicious humans.
The best firewalls in the world cannot protect your assets if your “human firewall” is weak. In fact, it is estimated up to 75%* of company breaches are attributed to human failures in upholding the security policies, standards, and procedures of their employer*. For organizations that require compliance with specific government regulations, such as PCI, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, or other security frameworks like ISO 27001, formal security awareness training for every employee either once or twice a year is required. Your entire organization, not just your data, is at risk of being compromised.
Why Security Awareness Training Programs Often Fail:
- It’s boring!
- It’s confusing!
- It’s irrelevant!
- It’s difficult to navigate!
- It’s hard to track employee progress!
- It’s too time-consuming!
This is why our goal is to make our Security Awareness Education simple, affordable and effective.
Why use Pivot Point Security for Security Awareness Education?
Developed by seasoned information security professionals, our online course curriculum is applicable & current. John Verry adds his extensive information security knowledge and thorough expertise to all topics, along with an appropriate dosage of humor to make this experience a story. Storytelling has proven to be the most effective way to learn; stories provide a framework for the student to successfully structure facts and recall information when it applies to real life situations.
Security Awareness Course Topics include:
What is Social Engineering? – a review of key terms and concepts (and how they are relevant to your everyday situation)
Phishing – learn to identify phishing emails and the precautions to take against infection
Malware – how it works, why it’s “mal”icious and how to protect yourself from it
Vishing – it’s not always computers that get us into trouble
Physical Awareness – knowing your environment and how to protect it from “nice” people

*There is broad agreement within the industry that human error is the cause of most data breaches. The IT Policy Compliance Group says 75% of ALL data loss is due to human error. The Aberdeen Group says 64%, CompTIA said 52% of the root cause of security breaches are caused by human error and most recently, Databarracks said the top cause of data loss was employee accident (24%).
