Our Cyber Security Awareness training is tailored to provide participants with appropriate information and digestible depth of knowledge to help secure business systems and networks.

Learning will encourage growth of an organisation’s security-minded culture—protecting business assets such corporate intellectual property, improving data protection—and invoke good online behaviours to reduce corporate risk.

Various training formats are available for all levels of staff within an organisation or training can be department-focused. We will work with you to determine the appropriate message and learning outcomes tailored to your audience – and within a suitable duration that fits around participant availability.

This training can be delivered virtually, at our Bristol facility or at our clients’ premises; training is typically for group bookings only.
