Boost your employees’ awareness with a cyber security training


90% of cyber security risks sit in front of the screen – mostly due to lack of understanding and awareness. As the threat landscape continues to rise, it's important to understand attackers and how they operate. With our cyber security trainings and cyber security e-learnings for employees, we build strong information security awareness and address the role of each individual user in your company. By increasing your employees' awareness of information security we counteract the risk and impact of a cyber attack in your company.

Who are the cyber security trainings for?


Every employee is a user. HR, accounting, administrators, developers, leadership - everyone has a responsibility to protect data and devices. This doesn't just apply to people with administrative privileges. That makes it all the more important that each individual understands the importance of security measures, as well as how to identify and respond to threats when needed.

E-learning content  „Privileged Accounts“

Every company has people with administrative rights, for example local admin rights, team and SharePoint administrators, or admins of supplier and customer portals. These "super users" can create or revoke access, install and delete software, but they are not real IT administrators and therefore often do not know about their special responsibilities. This course closes this knowledge gap.
