Why is Cybersecurity Training Important?

A part about us, what we do, and why.

Keeping organisations and citizens safe from bad actors is paramount in today's digital landscape. Cyber threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated, targeting our networks, systems, and devices daily. Just like Boudica, who fiercely defended her people, we must be equipped to defend ourselves against digital invaders.

Cybersecurity training plays a crucial role in preparing individuals to combat these threats effectively. By investing in comprehensive training programs, organizations can empower their employees with the knowledge and skills necessary to mitigate risks and protect sensitive data.

Here's why cybersecurity training is Important:

Defence Against Advanced Threats

As cyber-attacks become more complex, having highly trained employees is essential in maintaining robust defence mechanisms.

Cost Reduction

Effective cybersecurity training can significantly reduce the impact and costs associated with cyber incidents. By proactively identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, organisations can minimise the financial repercussions of breaches.

Fostering a Culture of Security Awareness

Cybersecurity training cultivates security awareness, fostering a proactive mindset where everyone in organisations takes responsibility for safeguarding sensitive information and detecting threats.

Compliance and Regulation

Staying compliant with industry regulations and standards is imperative for businesses. Cybersecurity training ensures that employees are aware of their responsibilities and helps organisations stay up to date with evolving compliance requirements.

Mitigating Supply Chain Risks

Research suggests that a significant portion of cyber threats originate from the supply chain. By educating employees on potential risks and best practices, organisations can mitigate these threats and safeguard their operations.

Countering Social Engineering Tactics

Social engineering remains one of the most prevalent methods used by cybercriminals. Training equips employees with the knowledge to recognise and thwart social engineering attacks, reducing the likelihood of successful breaches.

Investing in cybersecurity training is an investment in the resilience and security of your organisation. By arming employees with the necessary skills and knowledge, you can fortify your defences and mitigate the ever-evolving cyber threats that we face today.

Did You Know?

Supply Chain

Research suggests that up to 45% of cyber threats are now occurring directly through the supply chain.

Social Engineering

98% of cybercrimes rely on social engineering to work successfully.


According to industry giants, your cybersecurity budget should consist of 9-14% of your IT budget.

1-Week Advanced Cybersecurity Course (full/part time)

Our 1-week advanced bootcamp has been designed to give those with advanced computer or technical skills the ability to immediately begin cybersecurity practises in the workplace or in education.

7 hours of lectures are spread out over 5 subjects for a total of 35 hours teaching time with 24/7 remote access to our learning platforms, test environment, textbooks, with an extra 7 days of access for assessments.

Participants will learn how to secure data, systems, networks, applications and to begin monitoring and penetration testing immediately upon completion. The bootcamp ends with a guided assessment which forms a portfolio for each student showcasing their new abilities and technical talent.

For many industries the pace of technological advancement is incredibly fast and cybersecurity skills and practises are often left behind, putting companies at risk. Our advanced bootcamp will give technical staff and advanced computer operators the high-level cybersecurity skills required to mitigate risk with existing and future technology.

The course is extensive and so is highly advised as an aid to professional certificate examinations such as CompTIA Security+, Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) which our mentors can offer guidance.


Our students learn how to keep their company and personal data secure with cyber security fundamentals exploring topics such as memorable password creation, controlling metadata, updating systems, authentication and trust policy.

This subject looks at how computer networks operate in our homes, businesses and worldwide creating the internet. It covers machine language, the transmission of data at a scientific level, OSI/TCP model for network engineering, secure network designs, secure cloud management, and securing IoT devices and websites.

This subject looks forensically at each of the components in computer from the hardware to how operating systems function whilst studying the history of computer science and programming. The practical side of the subject will teach participants the Linux operating system and the programming language BASH used on the command line to an intermediate level.

We end the bootcamp by looking at the psychology of hackers, victims, and everyday users of the internet. Participants will learn how to reduce digital footprints, avoid dangerous websites and scams, and put 0-trust into practise. It uses real world examples to identify and defend against even the most advanced social engineering attacks such as pretexting and business email compromise.

Delve into the realm of ethical hacking, where participants learn to harness their cybersecurity skills for proactive defense. This subject empowers students with the knowledge and tools required to identify and address vulnerabilities in computer systems, networks, and applications, covering topics including penetration testing, security assessment, legal and ethical frameworks, incident response, and more.

Here we look at cryptography, the history of secret communications and how that works today. Students will look at cryptographic processes such as Diffie-Hellman, the blockchain and cryptographic key creation. Participants will learn how to use those skills to send and obscure data, files and information securely across the internet.
