Cyber Security Awareness
Your people are your first and last line of defense in your cyber security defenses.
Employees within your organization need to stay updated on the latest threats and attacks they will encounter, learn how to avoid them and how to act if something happens.
Our awareness training ensures your workforce stays up to date on the various cyber threats that exist, how to recognize them, and steps to take to keep themselves and your company safe.
In order to make this as valuable as possible for you and your employees, we will weave in their own context into the material. Highlighting the technical and administrative support and protection mechanisms in place, that helps them act safe and correct.
Our Cyber Security Awareness training covers the following:

We also cover how to behave in these situations as well as giving tips on how to prevent the attacks.
