Mitigate your risk from external attacks, whether it is state-sponsored attack, hacktivism, industrial espionage or organised cyber criminals, the increasing number of attack vectors into a firm need to be regularly tested, and vulnerabilities need to be identified and removed quickly and effectively.
Current research suggests 42% of threats to the workplace are caused internally, mainly through rogue or undertrained employees, and therefore there is a need to define clear information security policies for all team members, and empower them with the knowledge to identify and defend against cyber threats.
Internationally recognised information security standards, such as ISO 27001, 22301 and Cyber Essentials are the benchmarks by which all mitigation strategies must be formed. They create a framework for information assurance, allow businesses to access new markets and grow, and signal to clients and key stakeholders of the actions you have taken to mitigate your overall risk.
As our employee numbers and workload increased, we were finding it difficult to schedule time to run training sessions and keep track of who had / hadn’t been trained on important matters such as cyber security. Mitigate was the answer we were looking for. A simple to use training tool with built in tests is perfect for our fast-moving business. We can keep track of training to date and schedule re-testing ensuring we are always organised and compliant. Mitigate also has the scope to allow for other areas of the business to be covered, such as Anti Money laundering and Human Resource modules (i.e. induction) which keeps everything neat and tidy under one piece of software. Software updates are received on a regular basis and you are always listened to if you have a software suggestion. I would definitely recommend Mitigate for your business
The Cutover team really enjoy working through the Mitigate training modules. The training portal helps our employees focus on specific security topics and reduce the overall company risk profile. Great work, I look forward to seeing more new content and features.
Xyone, and Jacek particularly have done a great job in helping us achieve Cyber Essentials Plus. The assessment itself was pain free and good humoured as Jacek wandered around checking if people had post-it notes stuck to their screens with passwords on. Sensible and proportionate recommendations were made and those have now been implemented.
Xyone made the whole accreditation process of Cyber Essentials Plus very straightforward. They were incredibly helpful in explaining the requirements, and were able to arrange the site visit at very short notice. I would recommend them to my colleagues and won’t hesitate to use them again
Having worked with Xyone for some time now, I have found them to be extremely professional and courteous whilst maintaining a friendly and approachable side. The integration of the Mitigate into our organisation was very straightforward and hassle-free. The admin aspect of the system is easy to navigate and maintain and the reporting gives enough detail without being too complicated. The training platform itself is user-friendly and although the training goes into a lot of detail, the examples are current and based on real life situations. The support guys are very supportive and always happy to help. I can highly recommend Xyone.
Credit Style have been using Xyone Cyber Security now for over 2 years. During this time Credit Style and Xyone have formed a close and trusting relationship due to their prompt, helpful and friendly service. Over this period Xyone have carried out numerous projects, from External, Internal and Web Penetration testing to carrying out the testing for Credit Style to become Cyber Essentials Plus certified, most recently carrying out External Infrastructure Penetration Testing.
Xyone have, on every occasion, operated in a very professional manner, whether dealing over the phone, or when Assessors are visiting our premises and find their staff trained to a high level with clear expertise in the Cyber Security field.
Credit Style look forward to continuing our relationship with Xyone over the coming years and appreciate the knowledge and peace of mind that they provide via their expertise and service.
Credit Style would happily recommend Xyone and their services to any other company that require help, advice or service within Cyber Security.
Xyone delivered their excellent Cyber Awareness training session to our Business Heads group. They took what can be quite a dull and uninteresting topic, and presented it in such an engaging and thought provoking manner that the whole group were able to take something away from it, regardless of how much was previously known around the subject. Showing that cyber security isn’t just a job for the IT function to deal with, but something that the whole firm has to take responsibility for has certainly helped me in pushing the security message out across all staff.
We found the services of Xyone Cyber Security excellent and very easy to deal with, we would highly recommend them for any cyber security requirements.
The whole process from sending us a reminder to assessing our questionnaire to issuing the certificate was very efficient throughout.
Xyone attended at our offices to present a training session on cyber security. It was attended by people at different levels, from support staff to management level and also from different departments including IT, risk, marketing and HR. It is fair to say that everyone present gained something from the session. It was well presented, interesting and extremely thought provoking. Xyone demonstrated their knowledge and credibility in this area whilst not being patronising or, at the other end of the scale, using language which was too technical. The content was extremely useful not just in terms of professional life, but also in terms of personal awareness of cyber security issues.
After realising the weaknesses of our internal system security, AEV decided to instigate Cyber Security training from Xyone to allow all staff members with computer access to understand their responsibilities when it comes to terminal and online security. All these employees were trained through group, 3 hour sessions over the period of a day. The training was informative, enjoyable, interactive and extremely helpful. Feed-back was positive and all said that it was enlightening and very useful, not just for their work lives but also for their personal online security.
