Indigenous tech firm, Tros Technologies today announced free cybersecurity training, an engaging online video-based training program to help small and medium enterprises and big corporate alike in the country tackle the rising trend of cyber risk.
The firm said that as the incident of Coronavirus continues to force people to work f, cyber criminals are continuously on the prowl as they exploit the environment to create victims and make away with valuable information and funds.
The robust cybersecurity training program is designed to educate employees on common threats to their organization’s cybersecurity and offers a new way for small to medium-sized businesses to educate their employees on cybersecurity risks and best practices amid the coronavirus pandemic, right from their home, the company said in a press statement.
As many organizations have been forced to operate from a remote work environment since the Coronavirus Pandemic broke out last year, more employees than ever before have been working from home.
The problem with this is that working remotely poses new cybersecurity and data protection risks to organizations that they likely have not dealt with up until now.
Cybercriminals are diligently working to take advantage of these changes, hoping that employees will let their guard down or slip up by continuing to practice poor cyber hygiene in an environment that has many risks that are often overlooked.
“As many of the businesses in our community have shifted to a work from home environment to keep their doors open, we wanted to ensure that these businesses aren’t putting themselves at greater risk later down the road,” says Mr Muyiwa Awosile, Managing Director at Tros Technologies.
“Working remotely has its perks, but also comes with distractions and risks. We’re seeing a huge rise in COVID-19 scams which can pose a major risk to the security of our local businesses.
“That’s why we’re rolling out free cybersecurity training to any organization that wants it. Whether you’re a current customer or not, we want to make sure your employees have some knowledge of how to protect your business. Right now, all that matters to us is coming together to protect our community,” he added.

- Engaging, video-based training program accessible from anywhere
