Security Awareness

Cyber threats are more frequent and sophisticated than ever so security awareness is key. Cyber threats are always evolving and targeting businesses of all sizes and industries. Employees are often the weakest link in the cyber security chain and play a big role in either mitigating or exacerbating the risks. Security awareness training empowers employees with the knowledge and skills to identify and respond to potential threats like phishing emails, social engineering attacks and malware.

This proactive approach prevents data breaches, financial loss and reputational damage. Plus a culture of security awareness within an organisation reinforces the importance of cyber security so everyone from top management to entry level staff knows their role in protecting sensitive information. By prioritising security awareness businesses can build a strong defence against cyber threats and keep their operations and clients/stakeholders trusting them.


Email Security

Did you know, that one of the most common methods cyber criminals use to infiltrate company systems is through email. Email is a primary communication tool for businesses, making it an attractive target for cybercriminals. Phishing attacks, where attackers pose as trusted entities to steal personal information, are particularly common. These emails often appear legitimate, prompting employees to click on malicious links or provide sensitive information. Once compromised, an attacker can gain access to the company’s network, leading to data breaches, financial loss, and reputational damage.

A phishing email is designed to look genuine, and usually require the recipient to take some form of action. Many businesses fail to provide adequate training to their employees on the safe use of systems such as email and how to spot phishing emails and other unusual activity, and hackers rely on the fact that your employees are busy doing their jobs, and only give a cursory glance to what appears to be a genuine email arriving in their inbox.

How Labyrinth Technology Can Help with Security Awareness

Cyber security is not just about having the right technology in place but also about ensuring that your employees are well-informed and vigilant. Cyber threats are evolving and becoming more sophisticated, making it crucial for businesses to invest in comprehensive security awareness training. Here’s how we can help your business stay secure and resilient against cyber threats.

Training and Gap Analysis

Our recommended end-user security awareness platform has a gap analysis test. This will identify knowledge gaps and deliver targeted training to your employees on a regular basis. The training content includes short animated videos, multiple choice questionnaires and more. It’s engaging and informative so your employees can absorb and apply the information.

We create bespoke security awareness training programmes for your business and its challenges. Our training covers topics such as phishing detection, password management and safe browsing. We focus on real world scenarios and practical advice so your employees can recognise and respond to threats.

Simulated Phishing Email Attacks

To reinforce the training we run simulated phishing attacks. These simulate real world phishing attacks in a safe environment for your employees to practice their response. This hands on approach will identify where more training is needed and ensure employees are aware of the latest phishing techniques.

The scheduled simulated phishing email attacks will send fake fraudulent emails to your employees to test their ability to spot the phishing attempts. You can see which employees click on the simulated phishing emails and provide more training through the platform to keep improving and raising awareness.

Breach Detection

Our cyber security awareness tool checks your Microsoft 365 email accounts periodically to see if they have been breached on other platforms (e.g. Zoom). If they have it will send proactive alerts to the user to change their password on the compromised platform and any other platform where the same password was used. This proactive approach will prevent further breaches and overall security.

Company Policy Management

At Labyrinth Technology we will help you create and implement robust security policies that meet industry standards and best practices. Clear and communicated policies provide a framework for employees to follow and will reduce the risk of security breaches. We will also ensure your security practices are compliant with relevant regulations so your business is protected from legal and financial risk.

These policies cover password management, safe browsing and multi-factor authentication (MFA). You can also deploy company policies through Microsoft 365 so new starters get the policies as soon as they join the business and simplify the onboarding process.

Microsoft 365 Integration

For less than the price of a cup of coffee, you can enrol an employee in our Cyber-Assure program and start protecting your business from basic cyber attacks, including phishing emails and Business Email Compromise (BEC). The program is quick to deploy, easy to manage, and simple to monitor. By integrating with Microsoft 365, we ensure seamless implementation and ongoing protection for your business.
