Your Weakest Link
As a specialist financial firm your people are your greatest asset. Aggressively sought for their ambition, drive and determination to succeed, collectively your people enable your firm to deliver market beating returns and boost its growth. However if not properly trained they can also be a serious Cyber security weakness - and a weakness that Cyber criminals are only to keen to exploit.
For example Verizon, the multinational telecommunications firm, states in their 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report that 43% of reported breaches involved social engineering of some form, most notably in the guise of phishing. For ransomware attacks the figures are even higher, with the vast majority of ransomware attacks originating in an email tricking the recipient into opening an malicious attachment.
Transform your people
At Nicolson Bray we take pride in transforming your people from a Cyber security weakness into a Cyber security strength. Rather than being exposed as a target of exploitation, your people become the cornerstone of attack detection. Working with our specialists educates and develops your staff to not only be aware of the risks, but to detect them and alert your security team if you are under attack.
Our Cyber Security training services have been designed for everyone in your organisation, from the the Board down, and utilise the latest in microtraining approaches. So say goodbye to boring class sessions which your most critical people miss anyway, and say hello to short targeted micro sessions, all no more than five minutes long and tailored specifically for hedge fund, private equity and broker-dealer firms.
In addition our proven “Phish as you work” service tightly couples training with testing as your people are asked to react to real live Phishing emails. This enables us to review the effectiveness of your training and identify staff who may need an extra hand.
