Cyber Essentials

The digital world does not suffer ignorance lightly. In your organisation, it’s dangerous to assume that every staff member knows about cyber security risks, or how to counter them before they infiltrate your network.

The threats are numerous, and can take many forms. From identifying phishing emails to maintaining the protocols you’ve set in place, making your team smarter and safer online is absolutely critical. To reflect this, the UK government grants Cyber Essentials certification to companies that invest in user awareness. usecure’s comprehensive cyber security training has everything you need to complement a Cyber Essentials programme and move confidently in the digital realm.

Tackling User Awareness From Every Angle

To target cybercrime effectively, you need to take user awareness seriously, giving your team the tools they need to act as gatekeepers to your network. But delivering this can prove challenging, especially for cash- and time-strapped SMEs.

Thankfully, usecure is here to take the burden off your shoulders. Our online course meets all the learning criteria posed by the government’s 10 Steps to Cyber Security, to improve the competency of your team. Learners can complete it at their own pace, and stay one step ahead of the latest threats to your digital security.

From basic teachings on access control, such as firewalls and password privileges, all the way to dealing with malware, it stamps out the chance of social engineering. We even give you to the tools to send simulated phishing tests, to help you identify weak links in the chain. This also sets you in good stead for the Cyber Essentials Plus badge, whereby an independent body tests your system management for blind spots.

By subscribing to our cyber security training, you can:

  • Deliver training that complements Cyber Essentials accreditation
  • Strengthen the user awareness of your team
  • Reinforce your cyber security procedures
  • Minimise the risk of cybercrime within your organisation
