Why is staff awareness important? 

 Certified training

This cyber security awareness certified training in association with the National Cyber Security Centre will help you mitigate the risk of a breach or incident and embed a cyber security culture.

 Empower your staff

Educate employees on their responsibilities so that best-practice security techniques become second nature.

Strengthen your defences

Your staff are your last line of defence. Expensive technology won’t matter if your employees don’t understand the threats they face.

 Protect your brand and data assets 

Prevent a data breach or security incident by training your staff on best-practice procedures so they can actively help mitigate the risks to your sensitive data.

 Reinforce awareness

Refresh staff understanding as part of a continual staff awareness programme with this annual licence and free monthly staff newsletter.

 Demonstrate your commitment to security

Ensure staff receive appropriate awareness training, and everyone has the same level and quality of training.

 Showcase your employee’s knowledge

Enable your employees to demonstrate their competence in cyber security with digital badges. These can be included in email signatures and shared on social platforms.
