Netchex Partners with Cyber Readiness Institute to Help Clients Improve Cybersecurity

April 10, 2020

Did you know that 58% of cyber attack victims are small businesses—and that more than half go out of business as a result? Your business needs to be more prepared, and Netchex can help you improve your cyber readiness.

At Netchex, we are always looking to provide more information and resources to our clients to help in all aspects of their business—from payroll and recruiting to HR support and benefits administration. Now, with an important new partnership in place, we have bolstered our ability to provide clients with better and more proactive cyber readiness and security.   

Netchex has partnered with Cyber Readiness Institute (CRI), a program designed to empower small and medium-sized enterprises to improve their cyber readiness. By becoming more secure and resilient, businesses can avoid or more effectively respond to and manage cyber incidents that can damage or destroy their business.

Spearheaded by Netchex’s Information Security Manager, this partnership enables us to provide our clients with access to free security programs and more security-focused content, including webinars, blog posts, and newsletters

Clients and prospects can sign up today for the free security program and access great resources like Cybersecurity for Remote Work. When you sign up, enter NETCHEX as your Champion Referral Code.

Developed alongside leading experts, our new content will reflect the best practices when dealing with four major cyber issues related to businesses:

  • Authentication: the process of verifying the identity of a user or process
  • Patching: a set of changes to a computer program designed to update, fix, or improve it, including security vulnerabilities and other bugs
  • Phishing: the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication
  • USB usage: a popular, yet highly vulnerable way to store and transport files that bad actors use to infect your computers with malware

The program is fully customizable and takes organizations through a step-by-step process to improve cybersecurity, regardless of industry sector, size, or maturity. Cyber Readiness Institute’s approach focuses on people and processes in order to create a culture of cyber readiness throughout an organization.

Cyber Readiness Institute’s program is backed by large, international organizations, such as Microsoft, Mastercard, General Motors, ExxonMobil, and Principal Financial Group. Netchex has the distinction of being the first and only Security Champion in the Human Resources/Payroll categories.

Netchex clients and prospects can expect to hear more about this program soon. We will share information regularly via our client newsletter, Netchex University, and on social media. Follow Netchex on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to ensure you never miss an update.
