    Simulated attacks to raise awareness

Keeping security in the forefront of employees’ minds and driving home the importance of due diligence is imperative in the fight against cyber-crime.

It’s a fact that your end-users are the weakest link in your network security. Even without realising it, they can quite easily jeopardise the security of your company, and it can become an easy way-in for a cyber-attacker. The strongest defences are rendered useless if an attacker can dupe an employee into handing over login details.

To make matters worse, cyber-criminals not only know this, but use it to their advantage. It doesn’t matter if you have the greatest cyber security protection available, unfortunately, cyber security is only as strong as your weakest link, and that equates to your least cyber-savvy member of staff.

A recent study by SACA, an international, independent IT governing body, found that more than three quarters (76%) of UK office workers didn’t know what ransomware was and 36% couldn’t define what a phishing attack is. This is particularly concerning when ransomware and phishing attacks prey on unsuspecting office workers who click on malicious links. From the study, 1 in 5 also confirmed they had been victim of a phishing attack.

This is where we can help…

Our awareness training includes:

Monthly phishing attacks - company-wide

We’ll attempt to compromise your users’ accounts and identify employees who are not working with cyber security in mind and have weak passwords and network security. Month-on-month an improvement in employee cyber behaviour is expected.

Bi-annual spear attacks - high risk departments

Typically targeting departments that have access to business finances, we’ll attempt to scam specific groups of employees and steal data. Issues can be quickly pinpointed and addressed with departmental training.

Quarterly password check

Four times a year we’ll run our state-of-the-art password checker to pinpoint passwords that do not adhere to password protocols. We’ll inform employees that need to change their password and offer advice on how to set a secure but memorable password.

On-demand video training

Access to engaging video content on the issues around cyber security. Available on-demand to all staff, or purely to those with learning requirements.

Quarterly cyber security newsletter

Delivered every quarter to your business with links to useful reports, advice on tackling current cyber threats and ideas for working securely.
