Enterprise Security Awareness Solutions

Cyber crime and physical crime from external and internal sources is increasing everyday having potential to cause massive damage, financially and potentially to human life. The threats range from simple thefts to bio terror attacks and they can change every day. The problem is compounded in enterprises where employee turnover is high and security awareness programs are static and expensive to implement, monitor and measure. 45% of all security breaches occur from within a company. Damage or threats to a company’s resources from internal forces are considered to be more serious and dangerous than those posed by external forces. In today’s business arena reports of such attacks are growing day by day, despite astronomical investments made by companies on security to safeguard business assets, due to lack of security awareness amongst employees.

"...Federal investigators say that the tools and gears of security equipment are not as effective in the absence of appropriate and continuous employee training on potential threats..."


Security Awareness content must be dynamic. The themes should be based on specific threats, severity of the threats, enterprise-specific vulnerability, enterprise physical location, and enterprise business vertical. Security awareness program must also be able to track the awareness level of all employees and have the capability to identify, report and defend against any known attacks on an enterprise.

Damage to a company's resources from internal forces continues to rise each day.

FootPath launched SecureGURUTM to help enterprises effectively communicate with enterprise security programs and reduce the liability of the enterprise, while fully complying with laws passed by the US Congress that will soon be required of financial services, health care, defense and utility companies in the US. In addition to the technology to communicate, track and prioritize security content, FootPath provides security training content in the form of Flash presentations, screen savers, Intranet servers, posters & flyers. FootPath’s interactive content team constantly develops new content and provides it bundled with SecureGURUTM product.

SecureGURUTM Enterprise Security Awareness Concept

FootPath’s Enterprise Security Group provides Security Awareness Solutions for  Enterprises, Security Audits, and Information Security Architecture to Fortune-5000 companies with the main focus being:

Identification of the Threat - (How does one positively identify?)
To combat a threat, employees must be trained to identify a threat. Therefore, educating employees about all types of threats is the first and the most crucial step an enterprise can take to combat security threats

Reporting a Threat - (Who to report?)
Your employees have identified the kind of threat! Is the threat from within the enterprise or is it external? Do they know where and how it has to be reported?

Defending against a Threat – (Emergency response, first-aid…)
Is your staff capable enough to handle a threat? Are your systems being monitored by security software? Do your staffs know about the software?

Initiating a comprehensive Enterprise Security Awareness program, proactively reduces or eliminates potential damages from an attack.
