What is User Security Awareness?

User security awareness is the process of educating users of current cyber crimes and techniques, including phishing and other social-engineering attacks, that may unintentionally divulge financial or private information. Even the most sophisticated web security programs and policies can be easily defeated by simple human error. This is why user security awareness should be considered a vital part of any internet security policy. User security awareness should include training and testing related to cyberattacks and internet scams including social engineering tactics. This training should be updated regularly as new types of attacks are constantly emerging.
