Organisations of all sizes are aware of the problem of their workforce being targeted, but with a plethora of training and system options to protect them it can be a daunting prospect to where to invest first. As a Cyber Security consultancy with a commercial training wing for over 16 years we work closely with organisation to focus their security spend between IT security solutions and training their employees.

In this short security blog, we look to raise the need to keep humans updated as much as the systems that run our organisations. We look at how we can train employees to detect and react to threat scenarios in conjunction with IT security based hardware and systems.

Our CertNexus CyberSafe online training gives the organisation and employees a quality baseline of training to help in the fight to defend their network. Helping user to identify and report suspicious e-mails to their IT team to name one of the objectives the training seeks to give.

What is CyberSafe?

The CyberSAFE™ training program is designed for non-technical end-users of computers, mobile devices, networks, and the Internet. From the CEO to the new sales representative, any individual who has access to an organisation's information systems needs a thorough understanding of their effect on cybersecurity.

To train is one thing, but to validate knowledge is equally as important. After class, all CyberSAFE™ students can complete the 10-question online assessment to receive the CyberSAFE™ credential. Aimed at validating the knowledge and skills developed during the class, the CyberSAFE™ credential ensures that end-users are equipped with the knowledge necessary to be good stewards of their organizations' data.

As part of Cyber Security Awareness Month, we are offering free trials for organisations looking to develop their user cyber capabilities, please contact the team on 01752 724000 or email sales@bluescreenit.co.uk to book a free 90 day trial.
