Cyber Security Awareness Training

With security breaches making the headlines every other week, organisations have started taking cyber security more seriously. As a result, companies are heavily investing in security products such as firewalls, WAFs, AntiViruses, and security services such as penetration testing and vulnerability assessments. While these technical controls are paramount to an organisation’s security posture, hackers have identified a new weakness in the chain, the employees themselves.

Cybergate’s Cyber Security Awareness Training is tailored with a hands-on approach which enables your organisation to proactively strengthen this weak link. The course covers, amongst others, techniques such as Phishing and its variations Vishing and Smishing, Malware & Ransomware, Password Security and Social Networking Dangers.

  • For employees of digital companies
  • For employees of companies heavily relying on software and the Internet to operate
  • For employees of companies undergoing a digital transformation
  • For anyone who wants to understand the ins and outs of cyber security.
