Cybersecurity

User awareness training

Enabling your people to help keep your organisation secure.

Enhance your first line of defence. Empower your people.

Your organisation’s people are at the forefront of the ongoing struggle against security attacks. Whilst hardware- and software-based defences have a crucial role to play, the biggest opportunities for malicious actors to gain a foothold in your organisation come from targeting your employees. By fostering a cyber-aware culture from the ground up, you can turn your biggest weakness into one of your biggest assets in keeping your organisation secure.

Datacom’s user awareness training (UAT) programme combines regular training alongside simulated phishing attacks and comprehensive reporting that continually drives improvement of cybersecurity awareness within your organisation. Over time, the programme develops your people’s ability to apply critical thought when faced with today’s potential threats and enhances your first line of defence.

Security is everybody’s responsibility. In the same way that health and safety education is a mandatory element of any role, the same should be said of security education.

Frequently asked questions

Why use cybersecurity awareness training for employees?

Training can help develop your people’s ability to apply critical thought when faced with suspicious communications. Over time this will drive down the role of human error in security lapses and improve the overall security posture of an organisation.

How effective is cyber awareness training?

It depends on the quality and method of the programme. Some programmes are structured in one lengthy setting, others are divided into bite-sized chunks. Datacom’s user awareness training programme is designed to be completely flexible – we work with your organisation to identify the most suitable learning styles and develop a bespoke solution to fit your unique needs.

What is the managed service underpinning the training programme?

Rather than just setting up some training modules and move on, Datacom recognise the true benefit of user awareness training comes from a longer-term partnership. Monthly meetings help to keep your organisation across the latest trends and threats as well as review improvements over time with a comprehensive suite of reporting data.
