Cyber Security Awareness Training

Cyber criminals actively targeting people rather than systems because they see people as the weakest link. Threats like ransomware, data breaches, financial fraud and brand reputation damage all occur due to cyber criminals tricking or spoofing staff through social engineering and phishing emails.

Therefore, we see employees as being the greatest security asset in every organisation and we recommend every organisation implements a cyber security first culture. This involves training your employees to recognise what are the cyber security risks and what to look out for when they are carrying out their day to day jobs.

We help customers measure the level of Human Cyber Risk in their business and mitigate this risk by raising staff awareness and enabling clients to meet their compliance obligations (e.g. GDPR, NY DFS, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, ASD4) and security accreditations (e.g. ISO27001, NIST, COBIT ) through comprehensive reporting.

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 is a program that you can use to send highly realistic phishing / spoofing emails or SMSs (text messages) to employees in order to gauge their awareness of attacks. From sending phishing emails or texts you can gauge the level of employee security knowledge through a number of KPIs including open and click through rates. Phishing simulation is typically used in coordination with phishing training that educates employees about how these attacks work and how to avoid them. Repeat offenders can be assigned further training to improve their knowledge.
