Wellington based cyber security consultancy Aura Information Security has made its e-learning programme CyberWise available via a web portal saying this makes it accessible by all businesses, regardless of size or set up. CyberWise was previously available only as a module for use with learning management systems.
According to Aura, CyberWise is an online subscription-based training tool designed to help businesses raise the overall standard of cyber-security awareness across their organisation. “The online training modules provide employees with the skills and knowledge to identify common techniques used by cyber-criminals - for example phishing attacks and ransomware via email,” it says.
CyberWise was launched as a LMS module earlier this year and Aura says that, in response to a surge in demand, it has fast-tracked the development of a version that can be accessed via a web portal by organisations without an LMS, including those based overseas.
According to Aura, CyberWise includes up-to-date and practical advice on cyber security best practice, including how to identify potentially malicious activity, what to do when a security breach occurs; and common tricks used by hackers.
“Businesses using CyberWise benefit from knowing all staff are receiving the same level of training, regardless of position or location,” it says. “Employees can re-sit the training throughout the year to ensure they are staying up-to-date with new threats; and new employees can easily get up-to-speed by doing the training as part of their induction process.”
Aura Information Security was acquired by Kordia in November 2015 and CyberWise now sits within the Cyber Security by Kordia suite of security products.
