Giacom adds usecure security awareness training platform in fight against cyber risks

 Giacom is partnering with usecure, a security awareness platform, to offer its customers access to Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing resources to help mitigate end-user cyber risk and drive secure user behaviour.

With many businesses still working from home, it’s crucial for companies to ensure they continuously educate their employees to become more security conscious and be able to spot cyber attacks. But even with the most advanced endpoint protection, it only takes one user to accidentally open the backdoor to a cyber attack, ultimately putting the whole organisation at risk.

With 95% of cybersecurity breaches caused by human error, usecure’s intelligent training platform identifies users’ individual cybersecurity knowledge gaps by enrolling them onto a training programme unique to their risk profile. It then crafts a personalised programme which addresses their unique learning needs, prioritising courses covering their most vulnerable areas of cybersecurity.

The simplified solution is easy-to-use and offers a range of short video, blog-style and interactive cybersecurity content which is designed to engage every type of learner. The uLearn course library offers a range of information security, compliance and custom modules which are updated and refreshed regularly to ensure they remain up to date with the latest information.

Charles Preston, CEO of usecure, said: “Exclusively built for growth-minded MSPs, we’re excited to be working with Giacom to help secure their clients’ human firewall with our comprehensive security awareness training solution. Our software is designed to simplify and minimise the complexity, cost and resource-heavy administration of security awareness training, offering a highly effective, pain-free solution, supported by a passionate team of infosec specialists.”

Powered by intelligent automation, the training ensures that repetitive tasks such as course invitations, reminders and management reports are produced efficiently and consistently, keeping cybersecurity in the forefront of users’ minds.

Daniel Warelow, Product Manager, Giacom, comments: “The addition of usecure to our portfolio will enable our customers to continue to protect their end user customers during challenging times, reinforcing the critical nature of cybersecurity into their businesses strategy and infrastructure. usecure’s Cyber Security Awareness Training is simple to administer with built-in automation through the multi-tenant platform. By offering convenient learning which covers the modern threat landscape, our customers will be able to support their end users in prioritising security awareness.” 

usecure will be available through Giacom on the 2nd December 2020.
