Cyber Security Awareness Training for Employees (Virtual)

Open to DVWCT and DVPLT members at no cost.

The human element makes a significant difference in the success of a cybersecurity program. There is no single technology or user behavior that will completely protect you or the organization from cyber incidents. Keeping you and the organization safe requires developing layers of both technical and human defenses.

The training focuses on the human element of protecting information. It will help users recognize and reduce the risk of a cybersecurity breach.

A Zoom link with instructions will be sent to registrants about a week prior to the class.

Please contact cbigham@dvtrusts.com or call 267-803-5720 with questions.
