Our story and what we care about!
We know people are key to a resilient business.
Reports continually evidence anywhere between 90% and 100% of security breaches are caused through human error. Which means they could have been prevented.
From our many years in the industry, and backgrounds in training and behavioural psychology, we know that when we change, when we really change, we’ve usually had a conversation. A conversation can help us to make decisions or stick to them or develop new skills. Conversation is our catalyst for change, and if we remove it from our security awareness/culture programmes we lose our ability to change behaviour.
Changing security culture one conversation at a time sounds time-consuming.
But over the last 4 years we have gained experience working with businesses to a point where we now have a tried and tested framework for doing just that.
It started in 2016
with Openreach, we helped them create a network of Security Champions that survives to this day, boasting over 600 Champions. Since then we have supported numerous businesses in their quest for proactive Champions. And now have our own proprietary framework.
Whilst conversation is at the core, there needs to be a place people can go to understand the risks and threats, check their understanding and gain new skills. This happens in the Layer 8 Toolkit®.
More recently we recognised sometimes the conversation about security needs to start on a smaller scale. Our clients asked for workshops. From strategy workshops to stakeholder engagement, high risk groups and induction training. Our workshops are carefully designed to impart the information you need, whilst getting people talking and collaborating. This means information is meaningful and the change long lasting.
