Your tech partner
Managed service that provides regular simulated phishing campaigns and engaging training to employees to create a cyber-aware culture.
Cyber Security attacks are on the rise globally, and organisations are mobilising to secure their IT environments to prevent successful attacks from causing major harm. There are a multitude of technical approaches that help repel attacks, but often it is employees themselves that provide the biggest risk.
Cyber security training and awareness is a strategy used by IT and security professionals to prevent and mitigate user risk. The end goal of staff awareness training is to create a cyber-aware culture within an organisation, so all employees are better equipped to identify and respond to cyber threats and attacks.
Cyber security training and awareness covers topics like, how to identify and report phishing emails and malicious websites, strong password security and multi-factor authentication, and how to recognise and respond to social engineering attempts.
Reasons to invest
It is estimated that around 82% of security breaches involve the “human element”, meaning internal employees unknowingly act as the entry point for attackers to exploit. Cyber criminals are constantly adapting and enhancing their approaches to social engineering so they can better target an organisations employees to hand over access to vital information. Security awareness training can lower your user risk and protect your finances, IP, and reputation.
To be aware, you need to be able to confront
Cybercrime is evolving rapidly and all organisations are at risk
Employees are a key target of cyber criminals to gain access
Protect your bottom line, IP, and reputation
Customer success stories
Due to an ineffective disaster recovery plan, P&B Foods suffered an unsophisticated malware attack, highlighting the need to transition to a new IT provider. BCN developed a clear strategy to accelerate their digital transformation, giving P&B the confidence they needed to plan for organic growth and make future strategic acquisitions.
security awareness service features
Cyber awareness training that is tedious and dull makes engaging with the content harder, leading to worse outcomes in understandings and mastery. The best practices that make your greatest security assets could in fact turn into your weakest security link.
BCN has partnered with KnowBe4, a global leader in Security Awareness and Training leveraging best practice processes and best in market software to provide in-depth, engaging, targeted training to your employees. Ensuring they are both aware and vigilant for the attacks that come their way.
A bi-annual assessment of employees to measure their understanding and awareness of security risks and what to do in the event of an attack, based on 7 key criteria; Email Security, Human Firewall, Incident Reporting, Internet Use, Password and Authentication, Social Media Use, and Mobile Devices. BCN will then create and curate targeted training programs for customer employees based on the SAPA outcome.
BCN will create and carry out monthly campaigns targeting employees with phishing emails designed to mimic a cyber attacker’s approach. If an employee fails to recognise the phish, the results will simply be recorded, and training plans will be assigned. The monthly campaigns will be sent out randomly to avoid simple detection and service as regular reminders for employees to report phishing attempts when they see them.
The SAPA, training plans and phishing campaigns allow BCN to identify a “risk score” which provides a quantified view of a business’s security awareness and proficiency against industry standard metrics. We will benchmark the score against standards based on your industry and organisation size.
