At Jisc, we understand that cybersecurity isn’t just for IT professionals. Users, too, play an important role in the defence against threats. As attacks such as phishing become more sophisticated, it’s vital to ensure that staff and students have the awareness and skills to spot a potential breach.
That’s why, to help reduce the risk of cyber attack, we offer phishing simulations to help users safely experience what an attack might look like – and related security training so they understand wider risks and know what to do if they suspect an issue.
This simulation and training service is delivered by our partner, Khipu Networks.
How the service can help you
The service is cost-effective and flexible. It includes practical simulations, as well as theoretical sessions, with a choice of classroom-based or virtual learning led by experienced cybersecurity experts.
The simulation service includes:
Practical phishing simulations – including simulated phishing emails and websites
A ‘cybersecurity 101’ training session – including training modules with videos, interactive quizzes and tests
Branded landing pages for your website to support user awareness
Detailed reporting showing stats and graphs after each anti-phishing campaign
Using the associated training, you can:
Build flexible training to suit your needs – this service can be customised to suit the specific needs of your users
Get the benefit of experienced trainers – training is carried out by experienced cybersecurity experts, it’s not an ‘email-only’ software solution
Achieve value for money – in pre-procuring this service, we’ve taken significant account of cost – and in particular, the cost of scaling the service across the number of users in a research and education organisation. You pay a single price per campaign regardless of how many users are 'phished' – instead of a 'per-user' price model, which can be expensive for larger organisations
Buy with confidence – because we have pre-procured this service and conducted due diligence on it, you can buy confidently, knowing it’s a service you can trust
