Psychological Security

Training people to recognize and respond to cyber threats and other manipulation by technology

What is Psychological Security?

We believe in PsySec™ enough to make it its own category. So what does it mean? Here's the science behind how we got there.
Multiple Brains

The latest research in neuroscience argues we have “multiple brains”. So we train different parts of the brains differently.

Primitive Brain

The Amygdala, or “Lizard Brain” as more fun people like to call it, houses your threat recognition and response capabilities. That’s our target with training.

The Key to Train

There are two key ways to train this part of the brain: "tragic or humorous narratives" and "consistent exposure or patterns." These are the cornerstones of our approach.

Positive Approach

By creating training content that employees like and want, we are making the learning aspect voluntary, therefore more effective.

Our approach

Psychological Security

Psychological Security, or PsySec, uses humor, repetition, a positive approach, and the latest research in neuroscience to train the part of the brain that houses threat recognition and response.

Relevant Phishing Testing

We scour the ends of the internet every month to discover real and effective phishing emails to use in our testing.

Fresh Training Videos

We create our training videos fresh each month to match the phishing test, and deliver humor and education based on what’s happening in the world at the moment

Consistent Experience

When the training video matches the phishing test of the month, it creates a more effective, lasting experience.

How Our Training Works

Our PsySec™ training involves three major components: Testing, Training, and Reporting

Phishing Testing with Point-of-Infraction Training

Each month, we deploy real-life custom simulated phishing attacks to sharpen employee awareness of social engineering threats. If employees click on the simulated phishing email, they are redirected to a landing page with a short, funny, but educational video along with tips on how to spot and avoid phishing emails in the future.

Our Phishing Testing

Annual Training + Monthly Deep Dives

PsySec™ Security Awareness Training consists of two programs: PsySec Essentials, an annual training course, & PsySec Deep Dives, a monthly program unpacking and explaining security topics in a whole new way.

Automated, Actionable Reporting

We send out behavioral data reports, and continually provide valuable feedback and support to broaden cybersecurity awareness. Learn who your security rockstars are, and who needs little more help as you drive toward compliance maturity.
