Cyber Security Training
Provide your team with the knowledge to defend against cyber threats
When it comes to breaching your organisation, malicious individuals will often look to exploit the human element of your organisation in an attempt to extract login credentials and gain access to the sensitive areas of your network and organisation.
With this in mind, security training should not be reserved only for your IT team. Every member of your organisation should have an understanding of the threats which exist and how to effectively defend against them as malicious individuals will often look for the easiest targets to extract the information they need to initiate a successful breach.
SES has partnered with a leading cyber security partner which has developed a world-class training facility to provide essential cyber and information security training for organisations.
Their training is tailored to your employees to provide them with the knowledge and capabilities to defend your organisation against the growing cyber threat facing every business.
Tailored Security Training
The first step is to consult with your organisation to identify various cyber skills and knowledge gaps within your organisation and provide a tailored training needs analysis in order to reduce those gaps.
Our cyber security partners then utilise blended learning approaches to educate your team in the most effective and engaging way. This includes a mix of hands-on practical classroom training, online and immersive exercises.
Clients we've helped
SES works with organisations in more than 40 countries across the globe and we recognise that it's not practical or cost-effective for you to send your team across the world just to attend training courses.
To deliver on our vision of raising the level of awareness within organisations of the cyber threats that exist and knowledge of how to defend against them our training can be delivered either in the UK or overseas and our partners are highly experienced in building and operating world-class cyber training academies.
Whether you are based in Europe, the Middle East, Americas or Asia, our partners' vast experience in international training means we can bring our world-class training to you.
Our expertise. Your questions answered
What’s the easiest thing to implement in my office?
There are many controls every organisation should put in place to ensure good defence against cyber threats - from the basics like using anti-virus, email filters and firewalls, to more in-depth activities, like Penetration Testing and Phishing Assessments. One of the basic controls you can implement easily in both your professional and personal lives is good password hygiene. In some cases, your password is often the only thing keeping cyber criminals away from your sensitive information; length is the primary factor when creating a strong password—the longer it is, the more guesses will be needed by hackers to get it right.
Am I investing my Cyber Security budget correctly?
You could take a blanket approach and cover every possibility, but that’s an expensive strategy and your Finance Manager or CFO probably wouldn’t be happy to spend money unnecessarily. Every business faces different threats, so what the organisation in the next office needs to defend against isn’t necessarily what you need to invest in. It’s important to get an understanding of your threat profile and align that with the risks you’re willing to take (or not take). From there, you can decide what you should be investing in.
How do I educate my team to handle cyber threats?
The cyber threat is ever-changing and even with the best technical defences in place, the end-users (i.e. humans) are usually the weakest link. That is not to say that cyber security should only be non-technical, but it is important to have the right balance. Knowing where to start for cyber security generally can be difficult and working out what your team needs to know is a bit overwhelming. Like knowing where to invest your budget, how you train your team also starts with understanding your specific threats.
What do I do when something goes wrong?
Frustratingly, you’ve put in place all these useful security controls, but with the threats changing so often, keeping up can be hard. Therefore, it’s important to have the mindset that, it’s not about if you get breached, it’s about when you get breached and then how you handle it. Having a plan in place will ensure the consequences of a breach don’t undo of all your hard work in developing your organisation and building your reputation.
