Focus on Cybercrime Awareness can provide your entire workforce with the knowledge needed to protect themselves and the organisation.

You may have invested in the physical & technical controls to protect your IT but how secure is your human firewall?

All employees are responsible for protecting their organisation from cybercrime and other fraudulent activity. many of your employees, through lack of awareness, are a current cybersecurity risk? (It's typically between 40-70%).


  • Can all employees spot the early warning signs of an attempted cybercrime?
  • Can they recognise a phishing email or someone trying to orally extract confidential or sensitive information?
  • Do they understand the risks of poor and lazy passwords?
  • Do they realise the risks of working on an unsecured wi-fi?
