Aon Launches Cyber Awareness Training Program
Aon’s Cyber Awareness Training helps organizations combat a key cyber risk – human error.

CHICAGO, Nov. 17, 2020Aon plc (NYSE: AON), a leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions, today announced a platform that will help companies of all sizes enhance their cyber risk posture, Aon’s Cyber Awareness Training.

Aon’s Cyber Awareness Training is a comprehensive employee training program. Employees will learn about common cyber risks and how to incorporate best practices into their everyday operations. Cybercriminals often take advantage of employee error, making cyber security training an essential part of any company’s cyber security strategy.

“Even before COVID-19, cyberattacks were on the rise. But now, with millions of people working remotely, the risk of a cyber incident is at an all-time high,” says Christian Hoffman, CEO, Aon’s Cyber Solutions, North America. “Over time, cybercriminals have grown more sophisticated and breaches have grown more expensive. This training platform will help employees understand their integral role in minimizing their company’s security vulnerabilities.”

Aon’s incident response team leveraged years of experience to create the Cyber Awareness Training platform’s 12 learning modules. The modules are online, on-demand, and each takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Some topics covered include developing strong passwords, avoiding phishing attempts, safely using public WiFi, and reporting an incident quickly and efficiently.

Company administrators will have access to program analytics, allowing them to monitor the progress of all users. Managers can also track the progress of their team members.
