Why Cyber Awareness Training?

Empower your organization with IT awareness training from global cyber security leaders.

As data use increases, cyber security has become one of the most important aspects of a cyber strategy with individuals and organizations realizing the need for security and protection. As a global leader in cyber threat intelligence, CYPFER understands that every cyber security strategy requires good cyber security awareness training.

For this reason, CYPFER has created a customizable and interactive Cyber Awareness Training Program which provides a unique twist on engaging employees on security awareness education while making the process enjoyable.

Hackers are Hacking People

Ten years ago a bulk of cyber security attacks focused on defeating cyber infrastructure like firewalls, routers and anti-virus software. Over the last decade, the target of attacks shifted. People turned out to be more vulnerable than hardware or software.90% of successful network breaches were caused by human error2017 Verizon Data Breach Report

Everyone is Susceptible

Every employee, from the CEO to a new hire, is vulnerable to attacks and attackers have gotten clever, targeting and tailoring their scams to specific people. Phishing emails are filled with personal information scammers skim from the internet about their targets. Unfortunately, many breaches result from a lack of employee awareness of the IT security risks their actions online, on social media, at work and at home have.

What to do about it?

When building a cyber security strategy, no matter how big or small, simple or complicated, every organization must have a plan to deal with the human factor. What is your plan?

The CYPFER Training Methodology

As a global leader in delivering information and actionable intelligence CYPFER hits the ground running with our collaboration phase by working very closely our clients to collaborate on what threats and vulnerabilities to build a training program around, based on location, industry, market and specific organizational needs that are discovered through various phishing and social engineer tests.

Collaborate (Information + Actionable Intelligence)

CYPFER then begins to build a customized training program based on the information and actionable intelligence gathered from the collaboration phase. Our program focuses on three key elements: Prevention, detection and response.

Most people understand that good security awareness training will help prevent certain attacks, but to quote FBI Director Robert Mueller “I am convinced that there are only two types of companies: those that have been hacked and those that will be. And even they are converging into one category: companies that have been hacked and will be hacked again.”

That is why CYPFER believes great security awareness training goes beyond prevention, but also dives into how an individual employee may be able to detect that they may have been hacked, and how to respond to the breach by following company protocol.

Customize (Prevent + Detect + Respond)

After the customize phase, CYPFER takes the prepared material and moves towards delivery. The delivery phase is really where CYPFER separates itself from other training programs. CYPFER understands that to truly change human behaviour you need to engage, empower and educate.

Deliver (Engage + Empower + Educate)

Our focus is on the delivery of informative and actionable cyber security consulting that allows your organization to meet its enterprise transformation goals.
