Why do you need employee security training?
An organizations employees are one of their largest vulnerabilities; employees have the inside access that bad actors dream of – making employees a big target for cybercriminals. On top of that, employees can be very vulnerable to the tactics of cybercriminals.
Continuously improve risky employee behavior
Turn your employees into a line of defense for your security, not a vulnerability. You’ve heard of security training programs, but ours is different. Through our program, users are trained by engaging, relevant content on an ongoing basis. Most importantly, we make sure they put their training to work in their day-to-day by continuously testing them in the real world with simulated phishing emails and other tests. Our program has been proven successful in driving cybersecurity vigilance and reducing risky behavior.

Efficient continuous training
Don’t waste your time or money on training that you don’t need. Our curriculum is designed for Canada, can be tailored to your business and objectives, is delivered online via short engaging modules, and is constantly evolving to equip your users against current threats. Our program includes department focused content and user performance-based streaming to target high risk users with more help.
Proven methodology for modifying risky behavior
Our program not only provides education, it drives users to apply their knowledge every day. Like a mystery shopper testing how employees act in the real world, we send users well engineered mock phishing attacks on an unexpected, frequent basis to test how they respond. This teaches users to apply their training and practice the cyber vigilance. It also enables us to identify risky users and tailor additional training for them.
Program fully managed for you
Unlike other solutions that just provide you with access to content, we facilitate the full program on your behalf. This includes selecting and managing training, orchestrating ongoing mock phishing attacks, getting new employees up-to-speed, and providing reporting and consultation on program direction.
