Cybersecurity crimes are on the rise, costing billions every year and sabotaging personal employee security online. Many of the security measures available on various online platforms like Google Workspace provide default protection, but unfortunately that’s not always enough.
The individual is at the root of the majority of cyber threats. This is actually good news, because it provides an opportunity to take charge and make a change. By taking control and learning about the security tools and strategies available, you can better protect yourself and your organization’s critical business information.
Individual knowledge is an integral part in the fight against cybercrime.
Cybersecurity Starts With You
Cloudbakers University announced today they will extend free access to the self-guided Google Workspace Security Certification course through the end of November.
In October over 400 Google Workspace users have already signed up for the course, and nearly 300 have completed it. This included many of Qwinix | Cloudbakers’ own employees, working together to better protect themselves and the company through empowered learning.
“Google Workspace already provides great security, however this course is a step up in preventing cyber crimes like phishing attacks at the employee level,” explained Cassandra Weiler, the Change and Adoption Practice Manager at Cloudbakers | Qwinix. “Regardless of what platform you are using, the resources in this course can help ensure your employees have the strategies and tools they need to protect themselves and your company.”
Why A Secure Google Workspace Matters
According to Varonis 2019 Global Data Risk Report only 5 percent of company folders are properly protected. Yahoo Finance report claims that 78 percent of IT leaders don’t feel their company has sufficient protection against cyberattacks.
This course can help close that gap, allowing individual employees to take full control and responsibility for their part in protecting online data. In addition to basic proactive measures laid out by government experts to protect individuals and companies online, a better understanding of Google Workspace security settings is a foundational piece to creating a more secure online experience for everyone.
Google Workspace, which was formerly known as G Suite, is comprised of Google Cloud applications including Gmail, Google Chat, and Google Drive. As of 2020, more than 6 million businesses use Google Workspace to conduct business day-to-day.
Through the Google Workspace Security Certification course, users will learn about cybersecurity best practices and the specific Google Workspace security offerings available.
Cloudbakers University’s Google Workspace Security Certification course is completely self-guided, and takes the average learner less than 30 minutes to complete. It covers key insights on fighting phishing scams in Gmail, configuring the security tooling available through Workspace, and how to manage personal and company wide permissions and sharing capabilities.
