Flex your digital muscles with our cybersecurity quiz for employees

Gone are the days when cybersecurity was just for the hardcore IT squad. Today it’s everyone’s responsibility. And not just during Cybersecurity Awareness Month either. Every. Single. Day.

Think about it. No matter your industry, all it takes is a simple mistake like clicking a malicious link or using an easily guessable password. Security compromised. Can of worms opened.

And that means everybody needs vigilance. Our comprehensive cybersecurity awareness training quiz is designed to check your knowledge of essential cybersecurity practices. That means it’s easy to spot where you need some improvement.

People’s cybersecurity IQ matters

Small, simple mistakes can have big, complex consequences. Take social engineering attacks—where cybercriminals trick people into revealing sensitive information. They’ve even surpassed malware—formerly the big bad boss of cyber threats—as the main cause of data breaches.

People. They’re key in any cybersecurity strategy. A whopping 74% of cyberattacks involved a human element in 2022. The message is clear: Cybersecurity training plays a critical role in managing the risk of cyberattacks.

Let’s be real. Stuff happens. We all make mistakes occasionally. But the risk of human-related cyber attacks skyrockets when we lack the cybersecurity basics. Good security awareness isn’t a nice little extra. It’s basic survival. (Yes, we sound dramatic, but it’s not dramatic if it’s true, right?)

You might be surprised just how severe and widespread a cyber attack’s ripples can be. Losing client data, identity theft, a tarnished reputation, and legal and financial woes. Fines, lawsuits, bankruptcy…you get the picture. Not pretty.

Look, no one’s pretending this cybersecurity quiz isn’t going to fix human cyber risk. And it’s certainly not going to stop all cyber threats from ever darkening your door.

That’s because nothing does that…yet. (Though we reckon we’re leading the race 😏)

So, what will this cybersecurity quiz do? 

It’s a quick, fun way to assess your basic cybersecurity knowledge and cybersecurity awareness. It’ll reinforce some essential cybersecurity basics. It’ll pinpoint where you need some more cybersecurity awareness training. It might even raise a smile.

The thing is, cyber threats really are getting more sophisticated every single day.

Criminals are never happier than devising new ways to unleash cyber attacks and exploit unsuspecting employees. Actually scratch that—the only thing they love more is spending stolen money and using stolen data.

But good news. You (yes, you) can play a defining role in protecting yourself, your team members, and your organization…but only with the right security training.

And our cybersecurity quiz is a valuable step towards building good cybersecurity awareness for you and your organization.

But enough talk. How is your cybersecurity awareness? Take the quiz right now and get a picture of your security awareness in a few minutes.

Then challenge your colleagues, friends and family to do it too. Loser buys the donuts (and maybe changes their password from ‘123456’ to something decidedly less hackable).

Time to pick your quiz

Most of our readers are from the UK and the US. So, we designed one quiz for each side of the pond.
