  • Why are we requiring this training?

    Expand dropdown

    Computer security threats are a risk for employees both at the office and at home. This training is intended to increase our understanding of cybersecurity and reduce the risk of being victimized. Recognizing and avoiding cybersecurity risks can prevent the loss of data, time, and money.  In terms of lost productivity alone, it’s estimated that phishing costs employers approximately $180 per employee, per year. At EMU, that estimate translates to almost $400,000 in lost productivity in a year.
