Atlanta, Georgia – May 25, 2018 – ProviDyn®, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses and nonprofits, conducted Employee Cyber Security Awareness Training for The Rotary Club of John’s Creek on Monday, May 21, 2018. The mission of Rotary is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
Solution Advisor, Jed Fearon delivered 30 minutes of highly interactive training which focused on the human variable in lowering cyber risk. As he puts it, “With over 95% of data breaches caused by human error, I think it’s important for everyone to understand what to look for, how to respond and most importantly, how to engage with in-house IT or their managed services provider before it’s too late.”
Fearon went on to elaborate, “The crowd was lively and pleasantly opinionated. Two audience members contributed some great ideas which ProviDyn plans to incorporate into future presentations. One - The importance of having identity theft protection and recovery services cannot be overstated. If your identity is compromised it will take you around 80 hours to fix it yourself or you can have a third party like Core ID Services or LifeLock manage the entire recovery process for you for pennies a day. Two - Be careful about filling out surveys or playing games on Facebook that pose the same types of security questions your bank asks you to secure your account. There are many accounts of this data being used to hack into online banking accounts.”
