CybSafe, 11th January 2018, London: CybSafe, the GCHQ-accredited cyber security training platform, today announced that it has been shortlisted for Security Solution of the Year in the 2018 FSTech Awards.

CybSafe is a data-driven, cloud-based software platform that replaces traditional tick-box cyber security training. Powered by machine learning technology, underpinned by behaviour science and psychology theory, and fused with GCHQ-accredited learning content, CybSafe addresses the human aspect of cyber security. The intelligent platform identifies how each person best retains information and tailors the training to suit that individual. In 2017, CybSafe was honoured at the Computing Security Excellence Awards, triumphing as the Security Training Provider of the Year.

Oz Alashe, CEO, CybSafe, said: “Cyber security is one of the biggest challenges facing the financial sector in 2018. The cyber discussion is now firmly a board level issue and legislation such as the GDPR will only enhance this. CybSafe being shortlisted in the FSTech Awards is a recognition of the importance of the human element in cyber security. CybSafe is based on cutting edge technologies and psychological theory, and we’re delighted that our approach is being recognised in these awards.”

“Despite only launching last year, CybSafe has already made a significant impression on the financial sector, with clients from well-known high-street banks and insurance firms. Financial institutions often have robust technological defences, but neglect the human component of their cyber security strategy: it’s this element which CybSafe is hoping to radically change.”

Now into their 18th year, the FStech Awards, hosted by FStech Magazine, are the showcase for excellence and innovation within the UK and EMEA financial services sector. The event was attended by over five hundred guests in 2016 and this year is set to be bigger than ever.

The winners will be determined by an independent judging panel and announced at the renowned FStech Awards Gala and Dinner on 22 March 2018 at the prestigious London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.
