Cyber Security Awareness Training for the Finance Industry

Convert your staff into your first line of cyber defence

Facing cyber security threats for financial organisations head on

For financial services organisations, security is of the utmost importance. However, even with the most advanced technical safeguards in place, the human factor remains the most significant vulnerability for companies. In fact, 95% of all cyber attacks worldwide are caused by human error*.

Beyond safeguarding your assets, there are also unique insurance implications financial organisations must consider. APRA-regulated entities are expected to have training and information security awareness programs in place to educate personnel (staff, contractors, and third parties) on information security practices, policies, and expectations.
