Here to change things
The way we all use technology is changing, and our world is more
interconnected and digitally interdependent than ever. Cyber security has never been more important.
Yet despite the mantra “people, process and technology,” the truth is most people pay lip service to the people part. Many organizations bombard their people with ineffective, tick-box security awareness training and messaging, funny videos and phishing simulations. They’re then surprised when there’s no change in security behaviors and data breaches continue to occur.
It needs to stop.
We’re here to shake up the traditional approach to security awareness. It simply doesn’t work. Computer-based training, e-learning, posters, phishing simulations and other tick-box learning may meet compliance, but they don’t influence behaviors. Millions of people are falling victim to cyber crime, and their organizations, families and friends are suffering as a result.
CybSafe is on a mission to change that.

We believe in an alternative to the security awareness of the past
We know what it takes to change behavior. And we understand which security behaviors impact specific security risks. At our core is the belief that you can influence people’s behavior if you offer them the right support, and you have the data and capability to measure your results. We’ve brought together a team of former UK government cyber security specialists, behavioral scientists, data scientists and software engineers to design and develop exciting technology that does both.

We strive to make sure that we are doing the best work possible. As such, we have a Research Advisory Group, comprising of leading cyber security experts, who provide independent high-level strategic advice and input into the development of the Research and Analysis activities conducted at CybSafe.
