Emergency Preparedness & Training 

Emergency preparedness and training is an integral part of any organization’s security. We offer several services within the area of emergency preparedness and exercises in cyberspace, along with security awareness training for both employees, key personnel, management and board members.

 

Emergency Exercises

A cybersecurity incident will differ from a physical incident in several ways. An incident will, in most cases, demand the coordination of a wide range of vendors and stakeholders, which means that all relevant stakeholders need to be included in your emergency preparedness plans.

We can assist you with a wide range of activities, including planning and facilitating cybersecurity exercises of various scope, such as:

» Tabletop exercise

» Input exercise

» Full-scale exercise

 

We can also assist you with:

» Updating your routines and emergency preparedness plans and make sure these are coordinated with all central stakeholders
» Performing regular exercises and following scenario-based risk analysis, to ensure continuous improvement and updated emergency preparedness plans
» Preparing the setup of an information platform that is separate from your own infrastructure. This is especially useful in the case of a ransomware-attack that blocks all normal lines of communication

 

Security Awareness & Training

More often than not, humans are the weakest link, which is most definitely the case within cybersecurity. To help strengthen the security culture throughout your organization, we offer courses and awareness campaigns to enhance secure handling of information assets, as well as to increase the ability to detect and handle targeted phishing attacks.

We offer: 

» Tailor-made presentations and courses on key cybersecurity subjects
» E-learning courses on information- and cybersecurity. These courses increase managers’ and employees’ awareness, while testing their knowledge of why information security is important. Moreover, the courses equip the participants with tools that will help them manage information assets in a secure manner during hectic workdays
» Simulated phishing campaigns, which combine e-learning modules with fictitious e-mail attacks to increase the employees’ ability to identify and handle malicious e-mails. These campaigns will provide management with a report that gives an overview of managers and employees’ ability to protect themselves and the company’s assets by depicting detailed results of the fictitious e-mail attacks

 

Technical Advisory & Implementation 

Technology and digitalization come with endless possibilities. Yet, they also come with hidden vulnerabilities and risks that need careful management. We can provide you with technical expertise and security guidance when designing and implementing new, or upgrading existing, technical solutions.
