Who is Layer 8 Security?
What do we do?
1Layer 8 Security reduces the impact of cyber crime by testing and fixing the Human Firewall. What does that really mean?
Layer 8 Security specializes in Human Security, focusing on the provision of services and solutions, to address the risks Humans pose to Security. People are not like technology, you can’t turn them off.
We use a program approach to testing, measuring, and base-lining humans to identify the issues and then begin the process to fixing issues, knowledge, behaviour, culture, attitude and perceptions of your staff to minimize the possible impact of cyber crime.
Why do we do it?
2As Cyber crime increases in volume and severity, we need to look at the most effective ways of combating the cyber criminals.
Technology alone isn’t the answer. More than 52% of all security breaches are directly due to human error.
The business impact can be seen as corporate reputation loss, leaked intellectual property to competitors, financial loss, or even loss of customer confidence.
An impact on any of these could be fatal to your business. 60% of small companies that suffer a cyber attack are out of business within six months.
