A variety of computer symbols - Cyber Security Training
In section 1 of our Cyber Security Training we give a complete overview of Cyber Security.

The main types of security breaches that organisations face tend to be those that take advantage of human error and flaws in computer security. This section looks at how these breaches could happen and explains some simple ways to make it harder for cyber-criminals to gain access.

What can you do to prevent attacks from happening? As part of our Cyber Security Training.

This section looks at some of the most common ways malicious software can get into a system and at ways to prevent this from happening. It concentrates on emails, passwords, accessing websites, using social media and uploading data from external devices.

Section 3 of our Cyber Security Training looks at security breaches.

This final section is about continued vigilance on a day-to-day basis – spotting security weaknesses BEFORE a breach happens and how to report this. It also looks at recovery plans – how organisations handle breaches if they do happen.

About this course

Cyber awareness training is a vital part of an organisation’s information security measures.

Cyber-crime costs UK businesses a lot of money (Almost £30 billion per year to be more precise) and causes massive disruption. In fact, each year around half of all UK businesses has at least one security breach.

We are all responsible for keeping information safe when using computers and similar devices, so this Cyber security eLearning course has been designed for everyone to use.

It includes some straightforward practical steps that will help to protect computers, networks, programmes and data from unauthorised access, helping to safeguard the systems and information we use.

Cyber attacks are more prevalent than ever before, with ransomware attacking organisations (such as the NHS), airports, banks, and government departments; the need for organisations to implement cyber security training is obvious. Our Cyber Security Course can be completed in just 30 minutes and helps you to comply with current legislation.

We believe in practising what we preach. That's why we are Cyber Essentials Certified

Very clear and easy to follow.

With these accessible subtitles, it is good and important for staff, especially Deaf staff to understand how important cyber security is and it is now very prevalent in the world of technology which is mostly dominated with smartphones, computers, and laptops.

Excellent, brilliant Cyber awareness!

This is exactly what our employees require for Cyber Security awareness. It will definitely help staff understand the problems that may arise as Cyber Security is always on the rise. I think this will definitely address the ongoing issues we're currently facing at SSP as staff will gain awareness of the 'dos' and 'don'ts'. Thanks Helen for purchasing this for our staff, I really appreciate it.

Clear and simple!

The short videos summarise, explain and suggest brilliant ways in which you can protect yourself online.

Why is this training important?


It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

Effective cyber awareness training will help your employees remain compliant at all times.

The General Data Protection Regulation builds on the long-standing 1995 EU Data Protection Directive. What does the GDPR mean for businesses? In short, dramatically increased fines for breaches and other changes including: 

  • Data breaches must be reported within 72 hours.
  • 'Personal data' now includes location, IP address and RFID identifiers.
  • People now have a right to "be forgotten".

*The GDPR comes into effect on the 25th of May 2018. You can register your interest in our upcoming GDPR training.


A complimentary directive to GDPR, which focuses more on critical IT systems and their infrastructure.

Business benefits

Cybercrime is incredibly disruptive and costs UK businesses almost £30 billion every year.

The damage it causes is not only financial, however; in a world that is increasingly digital and data-heavy, with an ever more tech-savvy customer base, the costs in lost revenue, reputation, and investment are just as detrimental. Then, there are the data protection laws which come with massive fines should personal data in your possession fall into the wrong hands. To make your stand and fight back against cybercriminals, you need a solid defence. This cyber security awareness training course is just the thing you need. It raises awareness of the key issues and main avenues of attack and provides solutions and defences against would-be criminals; protecting your money, your data, your reputation, and your customers.
