Cyber Essentials for All Staff (2022)

Traditional approaches to information protection leave systems drowning in alarms and alerts and business leaders grasping to review processes, policies, and procedures to remediate potential risk. But can you guess what the biggest vulnerability you have overlooked while constructing your cyber shields?

In today's digital world where your enterprise's web of devices, platforms, applications, and users is expanding exponentially, your workforce has become your weakest link in the war against cyber crime.


Cyber crime has evolved to a point where software systems alone are not good enough to protect your company data. Without training, your employees end up overlooking certain traps that open the door for hackers to infiltrate your infrastructure.

What traps, you ask? Bypassing security protocols, unknowingly clicking on phishing links, not being able to recognise spam emails from official ones, and losing passwords are some such examples that can invite threat actors into your safe zones, eventually costing you data, credentials, and much more.


The only way for a modern enterprise to truly be secure is to train their employees to know better.

Not only do they need to follow protocols that can strengthen a company's overall security posture, but they also need to improve their cyber awareness and become bricks in your security wall.


This training module is for all staff within an organisation who require awareness in Cyber and its relevance in the workplace (and at home during remote working times).

This non-technical foundation-level course is aimed at helping workers to understand the importance of protecting the company and personnel information. The course also shows how to identify traps that may lead to a compromise or security breach. It will help your workforce:

  • Gain a foundational overview of the various elements of cyber security
  •  Understand the importance of maintaining a safe presence on the internet
  • Set their security imperatives straight
  • Learn how to avoid becoming a target on the internet and introducing viruses and hackers into your business

Train your staff for critical cyber prevention and say hello to comprehensive security.
