The cyber threat is very real for every individual and business - but with so much sensationalist news it's often difficult to get a balanced view.
At Brandfire, we believe so strongly that education around cyber security is critical for the survival of the vulnerable businesses, groups and charities in and around the West of Scotland that we provide all of our training on a not-for-profit basis.
Free training doesn’t mean substandard training, however. We’re proud to be members of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP) – a programme run by the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) which ensures that critical information on actual and live cyber threats is shared and understood around industry. Our membership allows us to constantly hone and improve the message we present to businesses about the current threat landscape, and provide them with the right, pragmatic strategies to protect themselves.
If you’re looking to improve your cyber awareness – at any level within your business or organisation – please speak with us. We love talking about cyber – all we charge is a nominal fee towards our travel and subsistence costs.
