The American Rental Association of Massachusetts (ARA) set their member organizations on the path to cybersecurity awareness this month. ARA received six hour-and-fifteen-minute-long custom seminars that introduced the concepts of Security Awareness Training – tailored to their industry.
Bryley VP Roy Pacitto facilitated the online, interactive sessions that provided an introduction to Security Awareness Training (SAT) for ARA member organizations. The aim was to provide each participant with the basics that if the concepts presented were adhered-to the organizations would be less likely to experience a security breach.
