What Is It?

A Softwerx managed security awareness training (SAT) programme is a comprehensive, dynamic and ongoing employee awareness and educational programme to combat inadvertent employee behaviour that could compromise your business.

Softwerx work with the market-leading Knowbe4 security awareness training platform to deliver a fully-managed service that can be designed to fit your business requirements.

Why Do You Need It?

A very high proportion of cyber-attacks are still (successfully) reliant upon your employees, inadvertently opening or downloading malware within your network.

New data governance legislation (Article 32 of the GDPR) states that all businesses should have a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing. Organisational measures generally relate to the employees within your organisation.

Subscribing to a comprehensive security awareness training programme can be the most effective and least expensive step towards protecting your business.
