SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Human cyber risk and awareness company AwareGO announced today the release of Human Risk Assessment (HRA) for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Created by cybersecurity experts, behavioral scientists and interaction designers, the Human Risk Assessment continuously observes top human attack vectors, identifies vulnerable departments and roles, and offers actionable insights to create informed security strategies to improve any organization’s overall cyber defense and reduce cybersecurity risks.
“All businesses need to address the human side of cybersecurity. That means being able to measure the risk and to mitigate it. Many small and medium-sized enterprises have had difficulties finding effective and efficient cybersecurity solutions that can comprehensively address the human side of cybersecurity risk. Such smaller enterprises do not have access to the large consultancy firms or the capacity to build up an internal security team,” said AwareGO Chief Executive Officer Ari K. Jonsson, Ph.D. “AwareGO is addressing this challenge for smaller and medium-sized businesses with a comprehensive solution. By using our Human Risk Assessment, all businesses can now continuously track the risk levels associated with the human side of cybersecurity across a broad range of threats. Then, with our unique 1-minute live action awareness training videos, they can strengthen their cyber resilience by making employees aware of threats and able to respond correctly. Most importantly, our solution is affordable, easy to use, highly effective and loved by employees.”
Based on human-behavioral science, this secure cloud-based solution allows companies to measure employees’ knowledge and behavior across several recognized human threat vectors, such as phishing, remote/hybrid work, passwords, and more, ultimately quantifying the company’s cyber resilience. Its interactive experience, friendly environment, and instant feedback make AwareGO’s Human Risk Assessment a transformative and indispensable tool for organizations striving to educate employees better and reduce cybersecurity risks.
For small and medium businesses, the HRA product provides numerous benefits, including:
- Affordability – HRA offers a monthly subscription rate of $1.50 per user which also includes all of AwareGO’s micro-learning videos;
- Simple to activate – HRA is a cloud-based solution with no installation and no set-up needed, as well as the ease and convenience of self-service;
- Easy to implement – Ready-made assessments mean customers can employ HRA immediately;
