IT Security Awareness for End Users

Why bother?

Despite the rapid advancement of technology, the human element remains an integral part of any modern company. Due to this, in order to breach an organization, attackers often resort to user manipulation instead of IT infrastructure penetration. Frequently, a phone call or a deceptive e-mail to an unaware employee may be enough to obtain restricted information or gain access to a company’s assets. Mounting such an attack is often possible due to information being freely available for the general public, commonly due to employee social network activity - for this reason, it is important to involve all employees security by organizing regular training and practical checks.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We offer a number of solutions based on your needs and established best practices in IT security:

All-inclusive IT security training regarding the most common attack vectors for the end-user, discussing the following as an example:

  • Security Incidents – how to spot a potential attack on the company or organization.


A simulated social engineering attack against your company, for example:
