Founded in 2015, CybSafe aims to apply behavioural science to security e-learning programmes specifically to cut down on the risk of human error.
The premise is that it doesn’t quite matter how much good technology an organisation has in place, if staff aren’t trained and aware then a company is still majorly at risk. Speaking with Techworld, founder Oz Alashe says the platform differs from other training programmes because it is based on behavioural science and engages with staff. Some of Cybsafe’s competitors out there, he says, will introduce training into organisations as a box-ticking measure.
“The key differentiator for us is our platform, which is a GCHQ-accredited awareness training programme, is more than a training programme,” Alashe says. “It’s focused not just on imparting information but assessing changes in behaviour, so we simulate attacks in order to make sure people know what they should know, and behaving in a way throughout the course of the year that should be improving.”
