NEW YORK, March 12, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Traliant, an innovator in online compliance training, today announced two new catalog additions to better protect organizations in today's fast-paced digital landscape. The new courses, Cybersecurity Awareness and Global Data Privacy Awareness, are designed to empower employees with the essential knowledge and skills needed to recognize and respond effectively to the full scope of modern security risks.

"Cybersecurity, data privacy and protection remain front-and-center issues globally. Ensuring employees grasp the guidelines and threat landscape is paramount. An informed and vigilant workforce significantly decreases the probability of costly cyber incidents and breaches." Mike Dahir, Traliant CEO

Cybersecurity threats and data breaches pose significant challenges to organizational integrity and financial stability – it's estimated that the average cost of a data breach in the U.S. is approximately $9.5 million. Beyond fines and costly lawsuits, the consequences of cyber breaches or data incidents can involve damage to an organization's reputation and loss of customer trust.

"Cybersecurity, data privacy, and data protection have continued to remain front-and-center issues globally as the prevalence and maturity of information security threats and risks increases," said Mike Dahir, CEO of Traliant. "Ensuring employees grasp the guidelines and threat landscape surrounding these areas is paramount, as an informed and vigilant workforce significantly decreases the probability of costly cyber incidents and breaches."

Michael Johnson, Chief Strategy Officer at Traliant, added, "By fostering a robust culture of digital responsibility and embedding data protection and privacy best practices, organizations can empower their workforce to safeguard sensitive information and promote digital safety."

Through a series of interactive, curated lessons, the new courses educate employees on the vast array of today's data and security risks, while also discussing how to avoid threats such as phishing scams and ransomware attacks. Additional topics covered include:

  • Common cybercrime schemes & attacks – what are they, how to spot them, what to do when you suspect one
  • Password best practices – how to create a complex password, password manager software, multi-factor/two-factor authentication (MFA/2FA)
  • Data privacy laws & terminology – why various laws (GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA) describe elements of data privacy differently and have nuances in their definition
  • Data subject rights & data use principles – how to properly use and protect sensitive data

All of Traliant's comprehensive training courses can be translated into over 100 languages and can be accessed on any device, at any time. Traliant's training solutions also include interactive modules, engaging video scenarios, challenges, and knowledge checks that provide a customizable and engaging learning experience for any industry looking to empower employees through effective cyber and data security training.
