Employee Training Workshop on Cyber Security (Singapore)

In view of The Messiah's recent threats to launch cyber attacks on Singapore, cyber security has gained increasing prominence.  Government agencies have updated and strengthen their security protocols, increased surveillance to preempt possible attacks and have put their response teams on stand-by.

All this is good, and necessary, but the best defense is to identify the weakness of the security protocols and then to strengthen that.  In cyber security that weak link is the human in the loop.  Research has shown that 70% of all successful cyber attacks are gained through social engineering.

Social engineering, in the context of cyber security, is the art of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. While it is similar to a confidence trick or simple fraud, it is typically trickery or deception for the purpose of information gathering, fraud, or computer system access.

As social media is a major enabler of social engineering, CWFA has developed a workshop to train employees how to identify and avoid social engineering attacks.  This workshop has been successfully conducted for several MNCs in the pharmaceutical industry.
