Cyber threats will cost the Global economy over $2 Trillion each year. A significant amount of attacks are facilitated by human error or a lack of cyber awareness, yet we focus on prevention of attacks through increased awareness and effective culture. The Cyber Stars Initiative was developed to help reduce the cyber threat to business that is enabled through a lack of employee awareness and confidence to identify and act upon concerns. The Cyber Stars Initiative is the only cyber security awareness programme with an official UK Government regulated qualification attached.
The Cyber Stars programme is a classroom based training session, with an average duration of 6 hours. Content has been specifically developed by our combination of technical cyber experts, experienced risk managers and educational psychologists to ensure the most engaging learning experience possible. The session is aimed at those individuals identified as Cyber “Ambassadors” for their organisation, yet is equally effective for high risk user groups or owners of cyber risk within the organisation. Cyber Stars should be identified across every business function and will have an ongoing responsibility for cascading of cyber threat information and implementation of best practice.
