Cyber Security Courses

The most severe vulnerabilities are people.

Even though securing technically an organization’s IT infrastructure is a critical step, it has to be combined with constant training of every user of the organization.
Studies show that attacks involving unintentional user contribution account for 90% of all attacks. Thus, training is of the utmost importance.
Usually users are so unaware and unprepared, that a hacker will not need any kind of physical access to cause harm. Predictable usernames and guessable or weak passwords are more than enough for them, even persuading a user into clicking a link can do enough damage.

Cyber Security Culture Course

The course’s main purpose is to ensure that all system users comprehend the significance of cyber risk as it can be very costly; money-wise or reputation-wise, and concerns every organization in every industry. It informs users about methods used by hackers to approach them, how to identify and successfully address threats in order to protect sensitive data from their malicious goals.
