Cyber Education

Ignorance: Now the biggest contributor of Cyber Attacks

Raising the level of cyber EDUCATION in all organisations is now critical. Empowering people to work safely – prevents many cyber-attacks and minimises the impact of a cyber breach. Uneducated staff cannot take preventative or proactive steps to prevent a cyber-attack (like ransomware, data theft, personal ID theft, banking and credit card theft etc.). Providing focused, simple cybersecurity training and awareness initiatives are not only critical but very cost-effective. They need to be delivered to consumers cost-effectively and be engaging and measurable. The delivery of cyber safety training is the No 1 critical step toward a successful cyber defence for every size of company.
