Security Awareness Training

Cyber Security Awareness Training and Testing Programmes

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

Our ongoing cyber security awareness testing and training programme increases employee vigilance against threats, so they form a stronger line of defence against malicious attacks. As one of the UK’s leading cyber security specialists, our knowledge of the latest techniques and solutions is second to none.

Monthly phishing simulation campaigns

Our phishing attack simulator is provided by Webroot, a market leader in security awareness training.

The 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.
