Virtually all organisations process or store commercially or personally sensitive information. All employees who interact with that information need to understand their responsibilities and the associated risks.
Technical controls will stop many threats, but education is one of the best deterrents against the phishing attacks that cybercriminals commonly use to scam their victims or to compromise their systems.
Security awareness training educates your workforce to help minimise the risk of cyber threats and leakage of confidential sensitive information.
Ensuring your employees understand corporate policies and procedures as well as staying abreast of the latest cybersecurity threats, is an important element of your security defences.
Information security is everybody’s responsibility not just for your IT or compliance department. Employees play a major part in protecting your business and critical information against threats and data breaches.
We provide bespoke, on-site and online training courses from technical training for in-house IT teams, to board-level briefings and general security awareness programmes.
We design our programmes to suit an organisation’s size, profile and skill level of expertise in areas such as;
- Cybersecurity awareness
- Incident response, including table-top exercises
- SANS Securing the Human
- Cloud Security
Training and awareness can be one of the most cost-effective investments in your security posture. Technical controls can mitigate many threats, but without adequate security training and awareness, your organisation can still be open to compromise through the behaviour of your staff.
We are an authorised partner of the widely recognised SANS Securing the Human programme, a member of the Cloud Security Alliance, and are accredited to the ISO 27001 information security standard.
