The Service

Staff awareness training educates your workforce to help in minimising 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 and data protection issues is an important element of your security defences and data protection compliance.

Information security is everybody’s responsibility not just your IT or compliance department. Employees play a major part in protecting your business and critical information against threats and data breaches.

This service can be carried out remotely via Video Conference facilities, if this meets your company’s current requirements.

The Benefits

  • Train your workforce to be better protected against brute-force attacks

  • Reduce the risk of phishing, malware and hacking attacks

  • Lessen the occurrence of data breaches due to human error

  • Minimise the risk of financial loss due to business email compromise

  • Prevent leakage of confidential information resulting in tarnishing your organisation’s reputation

The Challenge

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. Staff awareness training can also help you address new and existing data protection obligations such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Our Process

At BH Consulting, 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;

  • Security awareness

  • Data Protection (GDPR)

  • ISO 27001

  • Incident response

  • 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.
