Traditional IT security education solutions focus mostly on delivering scalable, automated and computer based training courses to address the human component of risk at organisations. The CyberFish brings innovation to organisations by blending employee awareness with cyber threat intelligence and talent management solutions in order to strengthen business continuity planning and incident response capabilities. We understand the critical skills and competencies needed across the cyber security team and by working closely with HR we are able to design and implement bespoke solutions that allow technical teams develop their soft skills, especially those needed in mission critical situations: such as the ability to communicate a clear message across different business units, co-operate with team members in order to make the right decisions in a timely manner and cope with stress effectively. By adopting an industry specific threat intelligence approach to regularly mentor senior (especially non-technical and female) leaders and allowing them to cascade cyber hygiene routines down their teams we ingrain cyber security best practice in the everyday functioning of teams. Our innovative approach and cyber psychology cycle directly leverages on cutting edge research within the area of digital behaviours and by addressing the human component of cyber security risk on several levels of the organisation, ultimately leading to a transformed security posture and a well-functioning cyber security team.
The CyberFish recognises that the transition to cyber psychology-driven training represents a cultural shift in the organisation and brings along new challenges for implementation. Despite significant ‘hype’ of the ‘human element’ by on-line training vendors (computer based training providers), we are proud to be one of the first organisations that offer a high quality, bespoke and high value added solutions that follow the internal processes of cyber security teams such as the threat intelligence cycle, the cyber kill chain and war-gaming exercises. Transforming the way employees relate to digital risk is not something that companies can simply ‘buy into’ by clicking through a number of on-line training slides. We believe that the shift to cyber risk awareness needs to be driven by senior management and needs to be fully integrated in internal processes such as individual key performance indicators and personal development plans in order to form part of the organisation’s DNA.
The CyberFish service portfolio allows organisations to integrate cyber psychology solutions across their learning and development and cyber security processes. We provide a wide range of services from attack surface and digital behaviours assessment to leadership mentoring, behaviourist assisted war-gaming capabilities, neurodiverse talent assessment techniques.
