Using Code42 Instructor™ Micro-Trainings as an Education Response Control for Data Risk Events

According to the 2022 Data Breach Investigation Report by Verizon, 18% of data breaches came from employee error. Whether an employee accidentally syncs company data to a personal iCloud or shares a file in an unsanctioned Slack workspace, these non-malicious events put data at risk and increase the workload of security analysts by requiring them to review and correct a large volume of accidental events.

Education is key to changing user behavior and reducing Insider Risk

It’s critical employees are trained on best practices for handling data. Sending them a “nudge” training after a mistake helps to prevent future risk to data. This, in turn, improves an organization’s Insider Risk posture over time.

Use Code42 Incydr to send Code42 Instructor micro-trainings and drive secure work habits

When used in tandem with Incydr, analysts can send Instructor responsive lessons to educate employees on security mistakes in real time. Being able to send these micro-trainings within Incydr allows analysts to save time when it comes to low and moderate alerts which are often accidental. This means education is easily sent when needed and allows analysts to focus their time on high risk events. Instructor lessons ultimately work as a preventative control by preventing employees from performing these actions again in the future, resulting in less risk over time.
