Cybersecurity Awareness Training

CYBERSECURITY AWARENESS TESTING AND TRAINING PROGRAMMES

According to analysts, between 50% and 90% of cybersecurity breaches can be traced back to phishing scams, which rely on human error to succeed.  

Our ongoing cybersecurity awareness testing and training programme increases employee vigilance against threats, so they form a stronger line of defence against malicious attacks.

Monthly Phishing Simulation Campaigns

Our phishing attack simulator can test different areas of the organisation at times and in ways agreed with you. It uses simulated yet realistic phishing scams similar to those a hacker would use.

The simulation monitors and collects data on your users’ responses to the simulated phishing emails, generating reports so that you can deploy Security Awareness Training as required.

Ongoing Cybersecurity Awareness Training

The goal of Security Awareness Training is to improve employee awareness of cybersecurity threats and reduce the risk of accidental network infections and data breach. It can include the following:

  • Data security overview: Different forms of data and the importance of storing and transferring it correctly
  • Safe use of portable media: Ensuring that portable or removable media don’t accidentally introduce malware to the network
  • Avoiding social engineering scams: Spotting the techniques used by attackers posing as customers or employees
  • Understanding and avoiding malware: Different forms malware e.g. adware, spyware, Trojans, rootkits and ransomware
  • Ransomware: Spotting a ransomware attack and steps to stop it spreading across a network
  • Spotting phishing attacks: Identifying suspicious looking emails, attachments and links
  • Safeguarding passwords: Secure password management and locking down computers when leaving the desk
  • Using websites and software safely: Safe browsing and avoiding websites and applications loaded with viruses
  • Avoiding email scams: Guarding against the email tactics used by the fraudsters and scammers
  • Securing the physical environment: How to be vigilant about visitors, employees and contractors “shoulder surfing” staff, or trying to gain access to secure premises.
