Description 

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 culture of cyber security.

 Empower your staff

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

We have a small business and one of my responsibilities is to raise security awareness among staff. I did three light hearted presentations to the business and this course was the perfect accompaniment. It also allows us to keep a record of everyone's test scores which we provide to our clients during audits. After shopping around I couldn't find a more comprehensive course for the price, it was also straight forward to administer as well as being very easy for our users to navigate.
