User awareness

Equip your organisational defence force with user awareness training.

Equip your organisational defence force with user awareness training.

Inadvertent human error is responsible for 49 per cent of breaches. This includes unintentional insiders — people who have fallen subject to a phishing attack, or their devices are lost/stolen. While the cost of a user breach is less compared to other vectors, it still accounts for an average of A$3.5M to a business. 

In today's multi-device hyper-connected roaming user world, firewalls and antivirus are no longer enough to protect your business assets. You need an educated, trained workforce, adept at spotting risks and potential breach attempts. Your staff need to be able to recognise phishing, whaling, and other common attacks that are hitting your business every single day.

Let us help you build 'the human firewall' — an educated workforce that is risk aware. Make use of our programs to ensure you have demonstrable confidence in the knowledge and security behaviour of your most important asset: your staff.

Smart companies don’t treat their employees as the weakest link but equip them with knowledge and empower them to be part of the human firewall.

Associate director, cybersecurity, Australia and New Zealand.
