Security Awareness Measurement

To effectively know the level of awareness among your staff, you can perform various measurements. You quickly find out if they are safe with company information and how resistant they are to the hackers' tricks.

At the start of a security awareness training you start with a baseline measurement. Each employee is assigned a start score without having followed the training. This way you can easily monitor individual progress and plan the necessary action points.

In addition to the baseline measurement, there is also an effect-measurement. This measurement consists of an online questionnaire and social engineering. Social engineering can consist of a phishing test (via e-mail or telephone), a USB test or a mystery guest. Different combinations are possible.

What does a Security Awareness measurement do?

  • Provides insight into the current awareness level among your staff.
  • Provides a starting score to measure individual progress.
  • Allows to test different awareness skills.
  • Provides a measurable end result.

The benefits of Security Awareness measurement

Security awareness measurement provides companies with numerous benefits. Some of these include:

  • Identifying vulnerabilities: By measuring security awareness, organizations can identify areas where employees may lack knowledge or understanding of security best practices. This allows companies to focus their training efforts on these weaknesses.
  • Improve employee engagement: Employees who are more aware of security risks and best practices are more likely to be involved in security efforts and take an active role in protecting the company's assets.
  • Improve compliance: Measuring security awareness can help organizations ensure compliance with regulations, such as those related to data protection and privacy.
  • Provide insight into training effectiveness: By measuring security awareness before and after training, organizations can measure the effectiveness of their training programs and make adjustments as needed.
  • Reduce risk: By identifying weaknesses and providing targeted training, companies can reduce the risk of security breaches and other incidents that could negatively impact their operations and reputation.

In general, security awareness measurement can help companies better understand and improve their security posture and take proactive steps to protect their assets and reduce risk.
