Security Awareness Training

Cyber security has an impact on every organisation, big or small.

Our Security Awareness training makes it easy for teams of all sizes to build their cyber security knowledge and skills. Bite-sized and budget friendly, our ongoing programme teaches you and your team how to identify and protect what matters most to you.

As an optional add-on, we also offer Spotted, SafeStack Academy’s simulated phishing service. Spotted creates a safe and supportive environment to test learners’ response to suspicious emails and reinforce their Security Awareness training.
