Cybercriminals see people as the weakest link
Cybercriminals see people as the weakest link in the security chain. They use social engineering and phishing emails to trick or spoof staff, which can lead to ransomware attacks, data breaches, financial fraud, and brand reputation damage. That is why we recommend implementing a cyber security first culture in your organisation. This starts by deploying a cyber security awareness training programme within your organisation.
CommSec’s Cyber Security Awareness Training
CommSec reduces human cyber risk by providing a bespoke programme of educational videos, online quizzes, and simulated phishing emails. Our regular training reinforces the right security behaviours and enables staff to meet compliance obligations (e.g., GDPR, NY DFS, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, ASD4) and security accreditations (e.g., ISO27001, NIST, COBIT). Our comprehensive reporting helps customers measure the effectiveness of the training and identify areas for improvement.
Integrated Phishing Campaigns
CommSec partner with SafeTitan to deliver security awareness training programs to users. The primary services are for detecting Phishing and making users so aware of these threats, that they effectively become a “Human Firewall” and become your first line of defence against cyber crime.
Main Benefits of Security Awareness Training & Phishing Simulation
GAMIFIED & ENTERTAINING
Engaging and enjoyable security awareness training. Our training content is innovative, engaging, kept up to date with the latest trends and threat landscape.
Intuitative set-up & Interface
Easy to set up on any computer network. Training campaigns, quizzes and simulated attacks can be formed and utilised within minutes of the initial setup. All content is delivered in-browser and accessible on PC, Laptop or mobile device.
Security concerns are global, but some topics require additional regional or specific to industry knowledge. We provide bespoke training for organisations like Education, Finance, Government, SMEs etc.
The training videos are developed to be short and concise, keeping staff productive and informed in a matter of minutes.
You can customise all elements of the training programme to meet your company’s unique needs. For example, you can create phishing templates that match your company’s branding and in-house communications, and you can use company documents to create simulation attachments. You can also spoof emails to analyse sophisticated responses.
For company leaders with little time or resources to roll out security awareness directly on their systems, CommSec offers managed services. We take full control of the training programme and provide customers with actionable reports on their teams and the performance of their security awareness processes around the clock.
We are delighted to share our experience with the “Security Awareness Training and Phishing simulation” service from CommSec. It has significantly increased our staff’s awareness of cyber threats. We like the variety of training videos and quizzes provided to us every two weeks and then the phishing campaigns once a quarter. This consistent delivery ensures that our staff receives regular, planned end-user awareness training, effectively reducing the risk of IT security incidents within our organisation. Thanks to CommSec’s expertise, we can confidently say that our staff is well-equipped to handle potential threats.

What is Cyber Security Awareness Training?
Cyber Security Awareness Training is a proven educational approach for improving risky employee online and IT behaviours that can lead to security compromises for your organisation. Through the delivery of bite-sized, regular relevant information and education on subjects including information security, social engineering, malware, and industry-specific compliance topics, security awareness training increases employee resilience to cyber attacks at home and in the workplace.
What is Phishing Simulation?
Phishing simulation tests employees’ security awareness by sending them realistic spoofing emails or text messages. Organizations can assess the effectiveness of their security training by measuring key performance indicators (KPIs) such as open and click-through rates. Employees who repeatedly fail phishing simulations should be assigned additional training to improve their knowledge of phishing attacks.
