How strong is your human firewall?

Many organisations rely solely on IT solutions to protect themselves from cybercrime. Such controls alone are insufficient to prevent the increasing incidence and sophistication of cyber-attacks. The key part of an organisation’s defence against cybercrime is their workforce. With the right knowledge, employees can provide a ‘human firewall’ to quickly identify suspected cybercrime and stop cybercriminals in their tracks. Without this human firewall, your systems (and the data they contain) are at significant risk.

Equality & Diversity

All employees in an organisation need to have a clear and consistent understanding of equality and diversity and how an inclusive organisation can enable improvements to customer service and to productivity. Our digital learning course enables these requirements for all employees and can form a critical part of an organisation’s induction process.

Digital Application

Risk Management

All organisations have an objective and a responsibility to manage risks effectively. Staff awareness of risk management enables organisations to reconcile risks and rewards, take informed decisions about exploiting opportunities and have increased confidence in achieving their priorities.



All managers and their staff need to understand the organisation’s role under the GDPR legal framework and have awareness of their own day-to-day responsibilities for data protection. Digital learning provides the opportunity to provide a clear understanding of: Who is responsible for GDPR compliance? What are the risks and costs of non-compliance ? What types of data exist and how can the processing of data vary? What are people's rights and responsibilities?

The key to anti-fraud culture for housing associations

Fraud is currently the most common crime in England and Wales, accounting for almost 40% of all crimes reported. It’s estimated that the UK loses around £190 billion to fraud each year, and £1.8 billion of this figure can be attributed to housing tenancy fraud alone.


Fraud and Cyber Crime – distinctly different or intrinsically linked?

Although fraud and cybercrime are often lumped together in terms of risk management, they are distinctly different. Not all fraud is committed online, and not all online crimes involve fraud.
