Key features

Advanced reporting

CybSafe’s analytical engine allows security leaders to monitor and report on unintentional insider threats in cyber security  – and watch as threat levels fall.

Security awareness

Personalised modular content grounded in psychology and developed alongside behavioural scientists demonstrably improves your people’s cyber security awareness.

Behavioural change

CybSafe fuses insights from behavioural science with data science and security expertise to change people’s behaviour, countering accidental insider threats.

Cultural change

As a secure culture limits unintentional insider threats, the in-built CybSafe Cultural Assessment Tool (C-CAT) helps you nurture a culture of security.

AI-machine learning

AI-machine learning makes several CybSafe security interventions automatic, and ensures the right people receive effective interventions at appropriate times.

GCHQ and IISP Accreditation

CybSafe is both GCHQ and IISP accredited. On completion, users receive a CybSafe Certificate in Cyber Awareness (CCSA).

Tackling the root cause of unintentional insider threats in cyber security

Your people are your greatest asset. However, they’re also human. Just like anyone, they’re subject to human error.

Human error underpins almost all unintentional insider threats in cyber security. Every day, busy and well-meaning people click malicious links, download malicious attachments, use insecure passphrases, join unsecured Wi-Fi networks and miss security warnings. Each of these actions – and a great deal more – are unintentional insider threats. And the damage done by such threats is telling: today, human error causes more data breaches than any other contributing factor¹.

CybSafe goes beyond security awareness

With its firm focus on raising security awareness, traditional, compliance-based security awareness training does little to counter unintentional insider threats in cyber security. Compliance-based training overlooks things like changing behaviours, optimising working environments, developing a secure culture and advancing tech usability – and all are vital to mitigating unintentional, accidental insider threats.

CybSafe focuses on more than security awareness alone. The platform’s multi-faceted and unique security interventions are all data-driven and scientifically robust, and all combine to mitigate the unintentional insider threats posed by well-meaning people.

CybSafe offers a GCHQ and IISP accredited, data-driven alternative to traditional security awareness training. To see how CybSafe works, simply book a demonstration.

“Cyber-attacks are rising at an unprecedented rate and becoming increasingly sophisticated. As a law firm we take the protection of our own and our clients’ data extremely seriously. Managing our infrastructure in the most efficient and cost effective way possible is vital and CybSafe has played a really important part in our information security strategy. We found it highly relevant and user-friendly. In the on-going war on cyber-attacks, it has made a positive difference to the company and given our people a clear insight into how they can manage the risks we face every day.”

Simon Holdsworth, Managing Partner, Thrings Solicitors

“We are really impressed with CybSafe. It’s easy to use and has really helped improve our understanding of the cyber security threats we face. Most importantly, it has given our team the tools to reduce our cyber risk and the confidence that we always have the latest information and advice. I really do recommend CybSafe to anyone looking to educate their staff and improve cyber security behaviour. Most importantly, it has given our team the tools to reduce our cyber risk and the confidence that we always have the latest information and advice.”

Alex Maile, Managing Director, Lawson Rutter

“CybSafe really is markedly different from the traditional tick-box awareness training packages currently available. As a business that understands the importance of our customer’s data and the absolute need for the ongoing access to their business records we have incorporated CybSafe into our Cyber Risk Management programmes. The individuals in a business are considered the weakest link in the world of Cyber Defence and we find that using CybSafe enables those individuals to become, instead, a constructive first line of defence. The ongoing education and support keeps the importance of security at all levels a prime directive and, at a more basic level, helps keep insurance premiums a genuinely affordable option. Thank you CybSafe.”

Nick Elwell, Managing Director,

“Cyber security is such a hot topic right now but there is so much important stuff to be done – sometimes it can be difficult to know exactly where to start. That said, it’s clear that the human aspect of cyber security is critical and CybSafe ensures that we reduce our risk in this area so that we are less likely to have a breach. They’ve taken a truly refreshing approach – one our team found very easy to engage with. We couldn’t recommend CybSafe highly enough.”
