Don't forget about your people!

Any business is only as secure as the people in it. Mistakes happen, they're unavoidable, but through education, policies and good practice the likelihood and severity can be reduced. It is important to equip your staff with the skills they need, you'd be negligent if you didn't and it's no good blaming them when things go wrong if you haven't set expectations and provided the knowledge.

We provide a wide range of training to help ensure that your people, both within the business and IT, have the skills and awareness they need to keep you secure. Enabling them to act responsibly and effectively, to understanding potential threats and how to protect against them, and how to detect and what to do when compromised are key to your survival.

Our awareness training course range from secure coding and development practices for your technical team, to combating social engineering attacks against call centres and key staff. General security awareness across your organisation is essential in today's connected world.

We occasionally run open courses at security conferences but frequently run bespoke courses for our clients, especially in the area of social engineering awareness and defence.

Popular courses include:
  • Social Engineering for Call Centres
  • Social Engineering for Penetration Testers
  • Social Engineering Awareness and Defence for Financial Services
  • Social Engineering Awareness and Defence for Healthcare Providers
  • Web Application Defensive Programming for Developers
  • Engaging Penetration Testers for Procurement and Project Managers
