Cyber Awareness Training

A well trained and engaged workforce can be your greatest protection against cyber security threats. 

Our cyber awareness training helps your people identify and deal with cyberattacks. They will learn the importance of vigilance and stay up to date with the latest threats. 

Understand the threats

Cybersecurity incidents take many forms. They can include phishing emails, downloading malicious programs, lost devices, emailing the wrong person or deliberate data breaches.

Our cyber awareness training explains the type of threats your organisation might be exposed to and how to recognise them. Trainees are encouraged to ask questions and share concerns, which gives us the opportunity to correct any misconceptions. We also discuss the regulatory and financial implications should there be a successful attack.

Minimise the risk

The key to creating a human “first line of defence” for your organisation is to ensure your people know how to deal with cyberthreats. In some cases this might require a significant change in behaviour.

Through our training they will learn what to do should they receive a suspicious email, hoax phone call or unusual social media request. We will give them all the knowledge and practical advice they need to spot the risks and deal with them appropriately.

We’ll also explore how other organisations have been fooled in the past and consider the very latest methods cyber criminals are employing.

Delivering your training

Our cyber awareness training will be arranged to suit your requirements. We can run bespoke training sessions for your company, or you can send representatives to one of our regular group training sessions.

The training can be delivered online, at your premises or at an alternative venue.

Everyone in your business should undertake cyber awareness training at least once. Ideally, we recommend ‘top up’ training every six months to refresh their learning and provide new advice on the latest threats.

As part of our security services we can help you to assess your current security set up and recommend areas for improvement. Find out more about this.

When we deliver your cyber awareness training we can tailor it to reference the particular security functions you have in place.

What’s the difference between Cyber Awareness Training and Cyber Essentials?
