Free access to campaigns to simulate phish attacks in the organisation. No software to install Phish Insight is a SaaS-based phishing awareness tool. With Phish Insight, there is no need for special software. You can access Phish Insight via a standard web browser.
COVID-19 Phishing email simulations. Cybercriminals like to take advantage of items in the news to exploit fear and bad actors have been deploying different waves of COVID-19 phishing emails. Train your employees to stay secure during these very difficult times.
Cybersecurity training for employees working from home. The huge shift to working from home practices means that many companies may have employees who are unable to secure family devices and networks as well as keeping sensitive information secure at home.
Physical security is important. You may need cameras to cover unoccupied offices or for personnel and lone worker safety. Modern camera systems allow remote monitoring and recording. You may also require door entry camera to see who is calling and answer without having to open the door to strangers. Some of the systems are suitable for self-installation, others require engineer installation which we can arrange.
 For information on any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Enjoy the weekend and keep safe.
