About Layer 8 Security

Layer 8 are the Australian experts in human risk management for cyber security. We solve the problem of cybersecurity behavioural risks by providing cyber security awareness programs.

It’s time to take your cyber security seriously

When it comes to cyber awareness, far too many businesses believe that updating an anti-virus program subscription or running an occasional security training course will suffice and tick a compliance box off their to-do list. The reality is that this overlooks the most prevalent cause of a cyber breach, with research showing that human error is the primary way hackers infiltrate organisations’ computer systems, comprising 95% of breaches.

To tackle this, Layer 8 provide a variety of tried and tested cyber awareness solutions that educate staff in an immersive and targeted manner, ensuring the key messages are gained and retained by your team long into the future. Our approach focuses on the behaviours, attitudes, culture and knowledge (BACKS) needed to secure your organisation and mitigate risk.

The Layer 8 Difference: Immersive Training & Knowledge Retention

Our approach to training and educating your staff is the critical differentiator in our cyber security solutions. Our immersive training programs are scientifically proven to provide an increase in knowledge retention compared to traditional training courses. Ensuring the key security learnings around cyber best practices are gained and retained by staff is key to driving behavioural and team culture changes that are instilled long-term into your organisation’s culture. In addition, our different services compliment prior programs obtained from Layer 8, raising your level of Layer 8 Cyber Awareness certification as you progress through your Layer 8 led cyber awareness journey.

With over a decade of experience delivering cyber awareness services to Australian businesses, we share our best practices and corporate knowledge in line with industry best practices and global standards throughout every consulting project. In this way, we transfer our expertise to our customers, providing you with a level set and the ability to confidently monitor, manage, and improve your risk posture on an ongoing basis.
