Why does being Certified CyberSafe matter?
- Lower risk of business ending cyber-attacks
- Increased investor confidence
- Greater customer peace of mind
- Higher employee satisfaction and retention
- A stronger supply chain
The incidence of cyber-attacks is increasing at a frightening rate. Human error continues to be a key factor in successful cyber incidents.
Consequently any organisation looking to operate business as usual must have employee cyber awareness training as part of their business process. Without the appropriate level of cyber awareness training every business exposes itself to greater risk over the coming 5 to 10 years.
