CYBER1 is pleased to announce an expansion of its managed service offering, through a new integration with campaign management and security user awareness training.

Campaign awareness and user training are seen as an integral part of an organisation’s overall mitigation approach to the latest cyber security threats. With the announcement of our managed service offering during Q3 of 2021 (please see here), CYBER1 has now integrated its offering with additional services around user awareness, to ensure all staff are provided with the skills and knowledge to conduct their duties safely within I.T infrastructures.

Cyber security threats targeting human vulnerabilities have continued to be the most prevalent form of attack. According to an IBM Cyber Security Intelligence Index Report, 95% of cybersecurity issues are traced to human error. This can either be deliberate or unintentional and organisations therefore have a responsibility to ensure employees are well informed on the best practises around user behaviour.

CYBER1 has partnered with leading security vendor KnowBe4, to become its strategic partner on security training and awareness. KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, is used by more than 44,000 organisations around the globe.

Commenting on the evolved service, Group President Robert Brown stated: “The incorporation of KnowBe4 into our Managed Service offering will add significant mitigation value, and complement well our Managed Service which has gone from strength to strength since its inception. Ensuring employees across organisation’s are well versed in how best to protect their company through their everyday actions, will add further resilience against the evolving cyber security landscape.”

“Channel is a main focus of KnowBe4’s core business, we continue to focus significant efforts on optimization for our channel business,” said Tony Jennings, EVP of International and Global Channel Sales, KnowBe4. “This is a very exciting partnership for KnowBe4, and we look forward to working with CYBER1 to deliver our security awareness training and simulated phishing platform to even more organizations across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).”

New complementary features around user awareness training include:

· Planning for Phishing and Training campaigns best suited to your organisational needs
· Phishing and training implementation and management.
· Fully customisable content disseminate to staff.
· Reporting to executives on organization behaviour and recommendations.
