Why It is Important

Why Is Cyber Security Training So Important?

Businesses may spend thousands on the best cyber security software money can buy, but that means nothing if your staff aren’t properly trained to avoid cyber threats.

Your employees hold your passwords, handle your data, share information and manage your security day-to-day. You may have built a maximum-strength cyber security fortress, but they hold the keys to the castle, and they can let anyone in.

Got a Question About Cyber Security Training?


FAQs: Learn More About Our FREE IT Reviews for Businesses

Why do I need cyber security training?

It’s no secret that cyber attacks are on the rise and that if you get hit with ransomware, the effects can be devastating. But did you know that over 90% of all cyber attacks happen because an employee clicks on a link in an email and either fills in their login details or downloads the ransomware directly? How can this happen?

It’s called phishing — a social engineering technique that can trick your staff into carrying out a seemingly harmless activity that results in your organisation suffering a breach.

How does cyber security training combat phishing?

A combination of the appropriate technical controls on your email — which prevent phishing emails from making it through to your team — and educational tools for your staff that help them watch out for and spot phishing attempts will help combat phishing.

Can you deliver an in-person cyber security training session?

Yes! Groups of up to 20 employees at a time work well for our in-person cyber security training sessions.

Can you deliver cyber security training remotely?

Yes, we can conduct cyber security training sessions via Microsoft Teams.

Can you tailor cyber security training to suit us?

Yes, we can! We would need to work out what you wanted to cover and develop the cyber security training material to suit your needs.

How is your cyber security training priced?

We typically price our training sessions based on the number of attendees but can also offer “day rates” for larger engagements.

Do you offer any “stock” cyber security training that we can use?

Yes! We offer a combined training, phishing testing and dark web monitoring solution for a low fixed monthly fee. This is ideal for organisations that carry a lot of sensitive data in the healthcare, financial services and data and marketing industries.

Can you provide a C-level executive to brief our board?

Yes, we can. Our most senior consultants operate at C-level regularly and brief your board about the key cyber risks and how to combat them.

Can I combine the different cyber training services you offer?

Absolutely. We often find that organisations that haven’t previously carried out any form of cyber security awareness training benefit most from an in-person or “live” training session, followed by regular phishing testing and awareness follow-ups with our video-based content.
