SECRC Security Awareness Training now accredited by The CPD Certification Service

The Cyber Resilience Centre for the South East has recently been accredited by the CPD Certification Service, who is the largest and leading independent CPD accreditation organisation working across all industry sectors.


Our now accredited Security Awareness Training is focused on employees from your whole organisation and not just your IT Manager, the training is delivered in small and succinct modules using real-world examples.


Providing simple and effective steps for employees to follow so they can minimise their own risks of becoming a cyber-attack victim, as well as providing them the confidence to challenge when something doesn’t look right.


Our cyber security trainers are highly knowledgeable, personable, and friendly and pride themselves on providing the right environment for your employees to feel comfortable and to ask questions.


Why is it important to support your employees with security awareness training?

Security awareness training is critical because cybercrime can affect any size and sector of business – think when it and not if it will happen. Threats are continually changing; your employees are the biggest target in your business. Hackers know employees can be soft targets and with the right methods be exploited to hand over data and money.


Staff are your first and last line of defence. The majority of attacks rely on some form of human error. For example, a simple Phishing attack can open the door to many other attacks such as ransomware, invoice hijacking etc. It's vital that all employees are aware of how attackers operate and are on high alert when noticing suspicious activity.


What are the Student Services offering from the SECRC?

We have formed partnerships with local universities to identify the best and brightest ‘ethical hacking’ talent from across the region who are able to deliver Cyber Services.


These services are designed to provide guidance to SMEs who are new to cyber security and need help getting started. These hand-picked students are deployed to work alongside the centre’s experienced team to provide small business with a range of affordable service to help improve your cyber resilience.


There are a number of services available which include investigating what information is out there that might be used to attack your business and you personally like personal details, breached passwords, and data available on the dark web.


They can check on the security of your website and systems, come in and scrutinise your current policies and procedures, or even deliver a staff training session. These student services are designed overall to make your staff and business a safer place.
