Cybersecurity and phishing awareness training solutions
Providing your employees with cybersecurity and phishing awareness training is vital when it comes to protecting your UK organisation.
Your human firewall can make or break your cybersecurity shield and your colleagues are at once your company’s greatest assets, its biggest weakness and its best defence.
We are trusted by
Cybersecurity awareness training
Our cybersecurity awareness training is an easy to administer, company-wide training and awareness programme, delivered in 10-minute engaging videos, directly to your employees’ inbox every month.
- A vast library of content, including interactive modules, videos, games, posters and newsletters.
- An award-winning original series ‘Inside Man’ that delivers security awareness principles but feels like a Netflix drama.
- Organisations can tailor training campaigns to focus on problem areas
Our videos are the foundation of a focussed, complete, and effective training programme that’s designed to impart and reinforce crucial knowledge.
And to ensure that the investment in training is worthwhile, ramsac can add a wrap-around management service, rolling out training and reporting back the statistics of who is completing the course regularly and who needs a gentle reminder.
Phishing awareness training
The ramsac phishing awareness subscription is a great way of increasing awareness. By testing which of your employees can spot a phishing email and which are fooled by them.
With the Phishing awareness training, we will carry out random simulated phishing attacks, ensuring that every user receives a very realistic phishing email at least twice a year. The emails mimic phishing emails from well-known brands such as LinkedIn and Microsoft, and if the user clicks on a link they will be taken to a safe web page, that highlights what they have just clicked on and offers them an immediate online training session on how to spot attacks in the future.
- Simulated phishing attacks that roleplay real life phishing emails
- Training that’s relevant to phishing emails
- Reporting on the status of employee training
Every 6 months the management team or a nominated person will receive a report, detailing who did and didn’t click on the link and who has completed the online training. This extra knowledge will help you improve your cybersecurity by identifying any weaknesses in your human firewall and where additional training may be needed.
Cybersecurity employee briefing
Available as a 60 or 90 minute workshop style event, available in person or online, to introduce to employees the important of cybersecurity.
The briefing will show employees how to be vigilant to protect themselves and the organisation they work for from cybercrime
To equip attendees to;
- Understand how cybercrime can and will impact your workplace and personal life.
- Have an awareness of the latest scams being targeted at businesses of all sizes.
- Understand what steps you can take to protect yourself.
Cybersecurity ‘speed awareness’ training
60 minute sessions available quartely and delivered via Microsoft Teams. Allows organisations to provide adhoc training for individual users who require additional coaching.
Cybersecurity Training is critically important in the battle for cyber resilience; indeed, it’s mandated under GDPR/DPA and should you suffer an incident, the ICO expect you to be able to prove that you and your business take this seriously.
We know that in every organisation there are two types of problems that hinder this.
The first is your colleague who never takes part in the online training you’ve provided, the second is the one who repeatedly fails the cybersecurity tests or phish-threat exercises.
Unfortunately, when you have a breach, if you are a director or organisation official, their failings are your problem.
To assist you with this scenario we’ve created a training session which is delivered live online. Think of it as a speed awareness course for your repeat offenders! Book in as many colleagues as you wish and we’ll invite them to the next available course. We’ll issue a certificate of completion after the event so you can evidence their awareness training if the ICO ever ask you to do so.
Staff Induction Cybersecurity training
Available as a 60 minute video updated annually to reflect the latest risks and cyber trends. To be shown during the induction period for all new employees.
The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) now mandate that all staff should receive cyber awareness training as part of their induction to your organisation, and that this training should happen before they are given access to any databases. Furthermore, you should be able to evidence that this training has taken place. Our Induction training subscription will provide you with a personalised training video that you can integrate to your induction programme, and an online quiz to check learning which will result in a completion certificate being issued for your records.
Cybersecurity Board Briefing – the Human Firewall
3 hour workshop aimed at the board of directors, partners or senior leadership team. With discussion and planning to leave the group with an understanding of their responsibilities, a plan for what they should do to protect their organisation from cybercrime and advice on what to do in the event of a cyberbreach.
This workshop on Cybersecurity has been designed to equip senior business leaders with vital skills and essential knowledge necessary in today’s fully connected business environment. The agile nature of business, along with remote working technology, has left more companies open to the risk of cyber-attacks and it is vital that we understand the problem, know how to plan for it, talk about it and start to take action.
Course objectives: To equip attendees to;
- Understand how cybercrime can and will impact your business.
- Have an awareness of the latest scams being targeted at businesses of all sizes.
- Have the ability to direct and prepare for cybersecurity risks, knowing how to talk both to IT and the rest of the business.
- Understand the impact of cyber with regards to GDPR.
Cybersecurity Board Briefing – Cybersecurity a 10 point plan
90 minute workshop is suitable for all directors and board advisors, it can be consumed as a stand-alone session or in addition to the Human Firewall workshop.
Vigilance starts in the boardroom and it is crucial that the C-suite take an active role in understanding the level of risk they are exposed to and establishing a meaningful and effective strategy.
The session is engaging, entertaining and thought provoking. At the end of it, delegates will have a checklist of at ten things that they should be doing in their business, questions that they need to be asking of their IT advisers and a strategy for minimising risk of prosecution.
Course objectives: To equip attendees to
- Understand their liability and risks with regards to cybercrime
- Hear about the latest scams and cybersecurity risks
- Consider the additional challenges of a Work from Anywhere/Home culture
- Understand what the ICO and Insurers expect to see in play

Did you know cyber training is now mandated?
The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) is the UK body that is responsible for prosecuting organisations that fail to keep data safe. In December 2021, the ICO issued new guidance saying that they expected that all staff and volunteers that have access to data, should receive cyber awareness training as part of their induction, and before they are given such access. Furthermore, they mandate that training should be ongoing for all employees, and that an organisation should be able to demonstrate completion of training and management of non-attendees.
Why training is your best defence
The rise of phishing
Around 70% of targeted attacks involve phishing emails. These insidious emails rely on social engineering to psychologically manipulate you into giving away sensitive data.
Research shows that 90% of cybersecurity breaches involve human error. This is not to say employees are knowingly allowing breaches to occur, the vast majority are due to innocent mistakes, a lack of understanding and ultimately a lack of training.
Regular continuous training
Training can lead to a 78% reduction in the likelihood of an employee falling for a phishing email
