Our experience with Syn-Star has been nothing short of outstanding. After a concerning data leak incident where our passwords were discovered on the dark web, their swift response and thorough investigation put our minds at ease. The team not only helped us change our passwords securely but also implemented robust cybersecurity testing and training programs for our employees. We now feel more confident in our cybersecurity measures and highly recommend their services.

Team Cyber-Testing

New threats and malicious digital content continue to look more realistic and convincing. Keeping your team constantly vigilant has become a must to protect your business.

Our tests will help your team identify all the tell-tale signs of a cyber threat. Every member of your team will have an understanding of how to avoid a cyber attack. 

Begin in 3 Easy Steps

Step 1

We complete a free data leak check to determine if your employees have fallen victim to a scam in the past. Using this information, we advise on which accounts to secure, and change any leaked passwords or details found.

Step 2

We set up a campaign to send one training and one testing email to your team at random times throughout each month.
Going forward, this hugely increases your team's awareness and skills for spotting cyber scams and how to prevent data leaks.

Step 3

You receive a report once a month to find out what percentage of your employees have fallen for this test.This shows who within your team needs additional training. All employees who have not passed the test must complete a training exercise.

Cyber security testing

How Our Tests Work

We have over 75 different styles of phishing/spoofing emails that are constantly updated and designed to replicate current threats. 

These emails may tempt your team to click and enter their details, much like a real scam email would.

These harmless emails get sent to your entire team every month at random times during the working day.

If your team do click on these links, they will be met with an error page explaining they have failed the test. That individual must then watch a short training video and complete a quick quiz to ensure they have understood the training. 

Consistent Training Works!

A recent study shows that security risks were reduced by 70% when businesses invest in cyber security training and awareness.

Why Does Your Team Need Training?

Many people think only large companies get hacked, but this is 100% false. Today, there are bots that constantly try to attack all kinds of businesses.

Knowing and understanding how these attacks happen is key to ensuring your team minimises the potential for mistakes. This reduces the likelihood of successful attacks on your business.

We have found many businesses train their team only once or twice a year, but this does not work! 

Cyber Security Training Videos
How does cyber training work

How The Training Works

We send your entire workforce a monthly training video to ensure all of your team are involved and kept up-to-date with the latest threats. 

They will be asked to watch a training video and complete a short quiz anytime they are unsuccessful in spotting the threat from the regular training emails.

This runs on an ongoing basis, and you can easily update us with any new employees or leavers via email. This ensures all of your team has the knowledge they need to prevent a breach caused by human error. 

How our Training Works

Watch The Training Video

Employees get regular video updates making them aware of the recent threats to be aware of.

Complete the Quiz

Employees complete the quiz whenever they fall for the fake scams.

Receive a Report

You will receive a full report outlining how many employees have completed the training.

A recent study shows that 95% of cyber security breaches are caused by human error.

Why Your Business Needs Training & Testing?

Risks of not having cyber security training

Mitigate Security Risks

Employees are often the weakest link when it comes to business cyber security. All businesses will implement cyber security defences to deter cyber attacks but do not invest in their employees’ knowledge to keep their business safe, leaving a huge gap for infiltrators to target. 

Safeguard Your Sensitive Data

Many different types of businesses handle vast amounts of sensitive data. This can be include bank records, addresses, and telephone numbers. 

A cyber attack on your business could cause serious implications if this information was leaked, both to your business and your clients. Don’t be caught out by something as simple as human error.

Compliance & Legal Requirements

Many industries have strict regulatory requirements regarding data protection and cyber security, in addition to needing to remain GDPR compliant. Failing to comply with these regulations can lead to severe legal consequences and financial penalties.

Cyber security training ensures that employees are aware of their responsibilities and the proper procedures to adhere to industry standards and regulations.
