      Cyber Security & Awareness Training

      IT security-focused user awareness training for organisations across London & South East

      User Awareness Training From £3 A Month

      Cyber security concerns are ever increasing in modern organisations. As such, keeping users aware of potential threats is vital to ensuring your organisations wider protection.

      Approximately 88% of cyber breaches occur as a result of an employee mistake, so providing ongoing training to keep up with evolving attacks is key.

      Akita is a leading provider of user awareness training programs across London and the wider UK. Better than stale seminars, our cyber security training embraces a proactive approach that tests unsuspecting users during their working hours. We then provide interactive online training to ensure that lessons are learned about cyber risks.

      Plus, our training service is designed to run multiple times throughout a year, ensuring ongoing vigilance against cyber threats within your organisation.

      Why Cyber Security Training Is Essential

      Due to our reliance on IT systems and the risk associated with data breaches both financially and reputationally, cyber security training is a critical layer of defence.

      By equipping employees with the knowledge, skills, and awareness necessary to identify and mitigate potential risks, cyber security training plays a pivotal role in safeguarding businesses from the ever-evolving threat of cyber-attacks.

      Cyber security training empowers employees to recognise threats such as phishing emails, malware infections and social engineering attacks. Additionally, promoting regular training sessions creates a culture of cyber awareness and ingrains the mindset into your employee’s every day operations.

      As mentioned above, organisations’ biggest security vulnerabilities are their people, yet for some reason many focus on safeguarding other areas and disregard this key piece of the puzzle. Employee’s have a duty to protect their respective organisations, but they need to first understand that they have that role, and second understand how to do it vigilantly.

      How Our Training Makes A Difference

      Our cyber security training has been embraced by organisations across the UK who are looking to proactively improve their cyber security defence. We’ve worked with a large London organisation involved in regulated financial partnerships. With a well-regarded reputation and a high-risk profile, our work has enhanced cyber security awareness across its operations.

      Our training services delivered fast success in the organisation. Training significantly increased employee awareness and vigilance around cyber threats in email, with camaraderie not being the one caught out by ever-more sophisticated phishing simulations.

      By prioritising user awareness and fostering a culture of continuous cyber security vigilance, the finance company has successfully adopted a proactive stance against potential risks and vulnerabilities. This in turn has reduced its risk profile.

      Understanding Our Cyber Security Training Services

      We appreciate organisations don’t have the time for teams to sit through afternoons of training that may not even be effective for them. Our approach is more practical and ongoing, ensuring that users remain vigilant at all times:

      • Coordinating with your IT team or leadership, we run an AI-crafted phishing attack simulation for your unsuspecting user base, identifying those who might interact with dangerous email or online content.
      • Leadership can then choose whether everyone or only those who fail the attack simulation move on to our user awareness training. This is then delivered as an interactive online security course that the users must engage with and complete correctly to pass. This guarantees engagement.
      • Further attack simulations can then be scheduled later at a frequency of your choice (monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly) to check that knowledge has been retained and that staff remain threat-aware.
      • We can also provide an annual assessment of cyber security awareness, which can be provided to insurers to reduce rates.
