Cyber Risk Aware, the developer of a leading cyber security awareness platform with education, human cyber risk assessment and phishing simulation solutions, has announced that it has been awarded the industry’s highest level of training accreditation by the Chartered Institute of Information Security Professionals(CIISec).
“With the rapid growth of cyber threats it has never been more important to ensure that Information Security Professionals are fully equipped to help the employees within their organisations to defend business and society from these threats.” said Katie Watson of CIISec. “We are delighted to be working with Cyber Risk Aware to raise standards of professionalism within the industry and ultimately protect businesses and government organisations against high level cyber threats.” she added.
“It is a well known fact that over 90% of data breaches and other security incidents are caused by human error,” says Stephen Burke, co-founder of Cyber Risk Aware. “Accredited training is the first step to combatting this. Education is most important and it is something that needs to happen across every level of the business. We are proud to be the first company to receive accreditation since the award of Royal Chartered Status of CIISec status.
Cyber Risk Aware’s real-time training is unique and is opening up to the vanguard of security professionals in the industry so that they can take the very best training practices and employ them across their networks.”

Cyber Risk Aware also provides highly engaging and interactive Cyber Security Awareness Training content and enterprise risk and compliance reporting so companies can demonstrate and meet their legal and regulatory compliance requirements in protecting proprietary and personal data, systems and finances. Thousands of companies use Cyber Risk Aware to provide a front line of defence against cyber criminals, significantly reducing the material risk of employee error via phishing, ransomware, CEO Fraud and Malware attacks.
