How collaborative are your company’s IT solutions? In an era where bad actors are innovating new threats every day, the IT solutions created for your business must be able to evolve and change to protect your most valuable assets. While technical elements like round-the-clock monitoring, multifactor authentication and firewall maintenance are all critically important, one of the most overlooked aspects of cybersecurity is regular employee training.
Your employees are on the front lines every day, dealing with potential phishing messages and ransomware. It only takes one mistake to open your entire system to a devastating cyberthreat. Instead of leaving employees to struggle on their own, invite them to be a part of the solution with regular cybersecurity awareness training sessions. Your kids may be the ones going back to school, but your employees could use some additional education as well.
By empowering employees to take full advantage of Compass Computing Group’s training services, you can get a much higher ROI from our ongoing partnership. However, learning how to leverage these new business solutions can be difficult for busy employees, especially when the solution offers a great deal of functionality.
Today, we’ll show you how Compass Computing Group’s customized training services can be tailored to your unique needs, making them more effective and more accessible to your employees.
Why Invest in Training as Part of Your IT Solutions
Since the training services run by Compass Computing Group are endlessly customizable, it’s easy to work with the unique training needs of your hybrid or geographically distributed workforce.
Whether your team needs a course in Cybersecurity 101, an in-depth lesson on password best practices or simply needs to be brought up to speed on the latest security or collaboration applications, we ensure that our trainings are efficient. We use all the resources we have, including our 25+ years of expertise in cybersecurity, to train your employees in a way that meets their needs. This often includes creating clear and simple training materials based on the unique specs of your system.
By taking on this training for you, we free up your in-house administrators. In the long term, this will help reduce your team’s dependence on your busy IT staff. Plus, giving your team the tools and knowledge they need to become more self-sufficient helps increase overall employee satisfaction.
The Training Sessions Compass Computing Group Offers
Compass Computing Group offers a wide range of training options to all our partner businesses.
Cybersecurity Awareness Training
One of the most critical trainings you can offer your staff is cybersecurity awareness. Depending on your needs, we can cover topics like:
- Data privacy
- Safe email usage and web browsing
- Password best practices
- Cyberthreat coaching
- Best practices for personal device use
- Recognizing unauthorized software
We can also arrange for phishing tests, using your company information, to help simulate the types of sophisticated phishing emails frontline employees may experience.
These trainings help your employees gain greater confidence and can help them stay productive and safe online. Depending on your needs, we can offer on-site instructor-led trainings or simple modules that can be completed during a short break. This flexibility helps ensure that staff get the training they need, whenever it is most convenient for them.
Policy Development and Compliance Training
Our policy development and compliance trainings are available to all partner companies that have complex security and compliance needs. In these training sessions, your employees will learn how to handle ongoing data security policies to insure compliance. With our expertise, we can help you craft a robust cybersecurity policy that protects your company and keeps your staff, stakeholders and customers safe.
Collaboration Tool Training
Compass Computing Group has strong vertical partnerships with other tech companies in Portland and around the United States which allow us to offer a slate of customizable, collaboration tool, training sessions. Whenever you introduce a new tool or application, our sessions make it easier to bring your team up to speed fast.
Why Use Compass Computing Group for Your Training?
Whether you choose live in-person training or online modules, our customized training sessions are a great way to maximize the ROI of your information technology investments.
For each partner we work with, our team designs unique training sessions with course material that’s created specifically for them. Our training sessions aren’t just a plug-and-play experience: we’re able to incorporate company-specific business scenarios to create a hands-on learning experience for your team. Plus, we offer a combination of published and online training materials which allow employees to look back at what they’ve learned long after the session is over.
By empowering your staff with hands-on knowledge, it will be easier for them to handle the basics of security on their own, freeing up more administrative resources to devote to your long-term needs and business goals. This helps keep costs down and allows you to focus your IT team’s expertise where it’s needed most.
Don’t let your kids be the only ones going back to school this fall. Support your team’s continued education with cybersecurity, data security or collaboration tool training that’s been designed specifically for the needs of your company.
