Cyber security training courses from The Cyber Security Expert

1. Cyber security awareness training

Attendees: All staff

Length: 2 hours

Format: Instructor led (in-person or remote)

This training course will provide your staff with the knowledge they need to ensure your organisation is protected from a range of common threats. It is designed for everyone in your organisation. Typically the sessions last 1.5 – 2 hours, and can be delivered in person or remotely. During the awareness training we will show how hackers typically target people first, and show the attendees how they can ensure they do not fall victim to these attacks. We focus on practical examples of the good habits needed to develop to stay safe and secure both at home and at work.



We structure these sessions around the Who, How and What (you can do about it) of hacking:


  • Who might try and hack your organisation and why
  • How this hacking is commonly done
  • What you can do to protect yourself.


By the end of the session the attendees will understand:


  • why passwords matter, and why unique passwords are very important
  • ways of managing passwords
  • what two factor authentication is and why it is important
  • how to spot potential phishing emails, even when they are targeted

Bespoke training courses

Our cyber security experts will develop courses tailored to meet the specific training needs of your teams. Whether that’s operations, incident response or the use of common cyber security tools. What’s more, we also provide train-the-trainer sessions to enable your business to roll-out all-staff awareness training. If you have any bespoke cyber security training needs don’t hesitate to contact us.


Phishing testing

Phishing emails present a real danger to business. They are commonly used to trick staff into revealing sensitive information or even their credentials. From experience we know that the use of periodic targeted phishing campaigns can anonymously test the outcomes of your cyber security awareness training. What’s more, testing provides a useful metric for cyber awareness planning as well as acting as a good reminder to staff that they need to stay on their toes.


Cyber Security Awareness Campaign


We believe that the best way to address the constantly evolving nature of cyber threats is to put an ongoing Cyber Security Awareness Campaign into place. An all-important mix of awareness training, phishing testing and white hat social engineering, this campaign will help keep your team up-to-date. We recommend a combination of cyber security briefings, a rolling phishing testing campaign and optional site inspections to keep everyone up to date and in the know. Importantly, it will also provide the metrics with which to measure changes in day-to-day behaviour.
