Training people to recognize and respond to cyber threats and other manipulation by technology
The latest research in neuroscience argues we have “multiple brains”. So we train different parts of the brains differently.
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.
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.
By creating training content that employees like and want, we are making the learning aspect voluntary, therefore more effective.
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.
We scour the ends of the internet every month to discover real and effective phishing emails to use in our testing.
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
When the training video matches the phishing test of the month, it creates a more effective, lasting experience.
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
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.Our Training
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.
