Blue Layer Service Spotlight: Cybersecurity Awareness Training

Strong cybersecurity is vital for virtually every type of business. Being proactive about defending your business and its information is much safer than reacting with a plan after an attack has already taken place. There are several components that make up an effective suite of cybersecurity services, but one of the most important, by far, is proper training for employees who handle that information.

Cybersecurity Awareness

Educate Your Team on Strong Cybersecurity

Typically, it’s a teammate’s inability to effectively identify or handle threats that lead to crucial data being compromised. Many system breaches can be avoided by educating your team, and we provide resources that do just that. Blue Layer’s cybersecurity awareness training helps employees identify and avoid the following threats.

Malware, Spyware, and Viruses

From adware (which can disrupt your operations) to spyware (which can transmit your confidential information to third parties), malware can take many different shapes, all of which proper training can help you and your employees identify.


With ransomware, hackers take your systems hostage and require you to pay a fee, making it difficult to access your data without paying a ransome or restoring from backups. As more businesses and even state organizations are learning, the effects can be costly!

Phishing, Vishing, and Smishing

Phishing scams involve hackers attempting to steal confidential information, including passwords and credit card numbers, by posing as trusted authorities. This is one of the most common threats businesses and employees experience in new forms every day. The latest phishing campaign exploited the Covid-19 crisis by preying on the unemployed through SMS texts impersonating a staffing firm. 

The most efficient way to handle threats is to get ahead of them before they ever have a chance to occur. Blue Layer’s cybersecurity awareness training is just one of the many ways to protect your information and keep your systems running smoothly.

Additionally, our cybersecurity awareness courses are DIR-certified for municipalities looking to comply with Texas House Bill 3834, which requires all county officials and their staff to take a training course to prevent attacks by cybercriminals.
