Beyond Tick-Box Training...

Securestorm, the NCSC Certified Cyber Security Consultants are proud to have officially partnered with CybSafe, the GCHQ-accredited cyber security awareness training solution to deliver an intelligent and constantly-evolving training software platform that gives organisations a level of expertise, insight, research and understanding that goes above and beyond traditional tick box training.

Tony Richards, CTO, Securestorm said, "We are delighted to tie-up with CybSafe. As cyber security advisors working alongside multiple organisations across Government to Private sectors, we have always expressed how security awareness and training is not a 'tick-box' activity. With our partnership we are able to provide innovative and engaging security training helping organizations to really embed and sustain better behaviours when it comes cyber security. The goal here is to embed a resilient security culture throughout organisations."

HUMANIZE YOUR TRAINING

Most businesses know that the human aspect of cyber security is important. They also know that they aren’t doing enough to address it and worry that they carry too much unnecessary cyber security and data protection risk as a result.

The issues preventing good cyber security behaviour from the everyday-technology-users within their organisations aren’t actually just knowledge and understanding. Many people are also Apathetic, Disengaged, Fearful or Confused.

These businesses want a cyber security awareness solution that demonstrably addresses the human aspect by changing behaviour, shows a demonstrable return on investment and marks them out as an organisation that can be trusted to take data protection seriously.

What is CybSafe?

CybSafe is Unified Cyber Awareness Platform. It is a data-driven, cloud-based software that addresses the human aspect of cyber security. In doing so it helps businesses to improve cyber security behaviour, visualise human factor vulnerability, and reduce cyber risk.

A Unified Cyber Awareness Platform

CybSafe is a Unified Cyber Awareness Platform that helps organisations intelligently address the human aspect of cyber security by focusing on ABC – Awareness, Behaviour & Culture.

It is advanced software that:

  • delivers GCHQ-accredited awareness training,
  • uses simulated multi-vector attacks and other methods to measure changes in behaviour, and
  • enables businesses to engage their people by keeping them informed and encouraging them to contribute their insight.

CybSafe helps organisations:

  • reduce their cyber risk,
  • build a positive cyber security culture,
  • meet their GDPR and other compliance requirements and
  • see a return on their investment.

It brings together (many of the aspects) a business needs address the human aspect of cyber security effectively.

  • Train & Educate
  • Change behaviour
  • Inform
  • Engage
  • Measure & Analyse
  • Visualise & Report

CybSafe is a platform that can either be delivered on its own (for businesses without the capacity to do more), or as a mainstay feature that is complemented by additional security awareness activity. It is the only GCHQ-certified training tool of its kind that delivers this.

An awareness programme should be an intelligently woven together series of activities that engage, educate, assess and inform Users. If done properly Users feel empowered rather than undermined. They also increasingly see the value in their understanding of cyber security and feel part of the collective solution. It’s a journey that takes many from ambivalence, disinterest and a feeling of inconvenience to interest, appreciation and sensible caution.

Most businesses don’t have the time, expertise or resource capacity to focus on the human aspect of cyber security as much as they should/would like.  CybSafe’s Unified Cyber Awareness Platform automates the provision of this activity making its delivery effortless on the part of busy professional people.

Who is CybSafe for?
  • For businesses that realise that they need no longer pay lip service to the ‘people component’.
  • For those that understand that they don’t have the staff, time or expertise to address this component effectively on their own.
  • Any organisation that would like to directly address the human factor in cyber security to reduce their chances of having a breach – and benefit from the insights and experiences of others whilst saving money in the process.

Meet Chris: Army Combat Engineer to Cyber Security Professional


a veterans journey to civilan life

When Chris Smith, a Royal Engineer veteran, left the military recently he wasn't sure what to do next — a dilemma for many former military personnel.

But Chris eventually found his calling in the technology industry, and is now rapidly making the transition from military life to the professional services environment.  

Chris's move into technology began when he enrolled into the AWS re:Start initiative where his interest in the area of Cyber Security got him a work placement with Securestorm Ltd.

Chris said, "I was initially lost, but once I found out about the opportunities within Cyber Security and the support available to me, I knew this was my future. The Securestorm placement combined with AWS re:Start initiative gave me direction, confidence and re-assurance which is vital to anyone who is coming out the military and pursuing a completely new avenue. Most folks do not realize how daunting the transition to civilian life can be!"

                  Interview: Meet the Recent Graduates

 
As the visionary head of Securestorm, CEO Mandeep Obhrai stated, "We are committed to our partnership with AWS as we embark on diverse initiatives from bringing innovative security solutions to supporting the community around us through a well-developed training and placement program. As a start-up with multiple achievements in our sector, we can help inspire, motivate and mentor new starters in technology on a very personal level with adequate support and nurturing along the way".
Army veteran turned leading Cyber & Cloud strategist, Tony Richards, CTO & CISO of Securestorm said, "While most former military personnel do not have cyber-security training, they do have compatible skills, teamwork spirit and are extremely focused by nature. These qualities are essential to our industry. Being receptive to learning, development and mentor-ship are perhaps more important than having only technical skills especially considering the fast-pace changes in the digital cyber industry.

He also added, "We have a collective role to provide support for veterans. At Securestorm, we believe in building upon initiatives such as the AWS re:Start. This goes beyond getting veterans back to normal life as the industry needs to recognize what they have to offer.
