Our training compliance program provides ongoing staff cybersecurity awareness development utilizing current cybersecurity news events, informative “best practice” tips and on-demand access to security educational material.
Generative AI tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and the Google Bard language LLM's models have revolutionized content generation, but their capabilities have also attracted cybercriminals. In our latest knowledge sharing post we discuss how GenAI has provided cybercriminals with powerful tools to conduct sophisticated phishing and malware campaigns.
⚠️ Organizations must stay vigilant and invest in security awareness training to mitigate these risks.
⚠️ Users should remain cautious as they explore trends in technology and GenAI.
⚠️ Mitigate the risk of GenAI exploitation with a multi-faceted approach that combines technological solutions, employee training, and policy development.
Riskigy's new hire onboarding cybersecurity awareness training helps new employees understand the organization’s security requirements, risks and protocols before they gain access to sensitive systems.
Here are some tips to help new employees navigate this vulnerable time:
✅ Educate employees on how to recognize and avoid phishing emails and other social engineering attacks, such as phone scams and impersonation attempts.
✅ Instruct employees on how to report suspected security incidents, such as phishing attempts, data breaches, or lost devices. Provide clear channels for reporting and encourage employees to report any security concerns promptly.
✅ Explain the risks posed by malware, including ransomware, and teach employees how to recognize and avoid malicious attachments, links, and websites.
HR teams can include our cybersecurity awareness training with new hire onboarding, but it’s also something to consider for all staff to help improve overall security awareness for the entire organization.
As a type of social engineering attack, scareware relies on the manipulation of the weakest link of cybersecurity, people. Scareware attackers uses aggressive and persistent tactics to manipulate users to believe they have a serious problem with their device, or a compromised account.
Scareware can be very profitable for attackers because they often charge high fees for their fake software or services or steal valuable personal and financial information. The most effective way to mitigate the risk of scareware is to conduct routine awareness training for employees.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) are two regulatory bodies that require cybersecurity training compliance for financial organizations. These organizations need to be diligent in ensuring that their employees are aware of the latest security threats and how to protect sensitive information. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in penalties, fines, and even legal action.
Compliance with regulators such as the SEC, FINRA, NCUA, and HIPAA is Critical!
To stay secure, Riskigy provides proactive and custom tips and job specific training that employees can take to keep sensitive information safe and protect your organization.
Employee cybersecurity awareness training and phishing simulation training can be effective if implemented frequently, which includes identifying high-risk employees and engaging repeat offenders, adapting to new methods of creating phishing emails, and deploying phishing tests in the same type of working environment in which employees regularly operate.
