About

Phishing and other forms of social engineering regularly top the list of information security threats that organisations are most concerned about. These attacks target people, not technology.

People are the largest, most accessible attack surface for criminals. But blaming end users as the 'weakest link' or single point of failure in organisational security doesn’t achieve anything. If you work in security, it's very easy to forget that security isn’t most people’s 'day job'.

If an incident occurs because a member of staff was not trained or supported effectively, is the incident their fault, or their employers? 

This course offers practical advice for developing a fresh approach to information security awareness and training, a key component of a strong security culture.
