28 October 2020, London – Cyber Risk Aware, the only company in the world to offer a ‘real-time’ cyber security awareness training platform through online training, human cyber risk assessment and phishing simulation solutions, is excited to announce its new partnership with Typetec, a leading managed service provider of IT cloud solutions.
We are really pleased to be partnering with Cyber Risk Aware as human error is one of the main causes of cybersecurity breaches in Ireland today. We want to educate our customers to ensure that they know and understand the warning signs.” said Finbarr O’Riordan, Typetec Sales Lead.
This year cyber attacks have reached an all-time-high and businesses need to be vigilant. In a 2020 Irish Economic Crime Survey of over 70 organisations, the PwC reported over half had experienced two or more incidents of fraud in a 2 year period. Despite numerous data breach headlines, companies are still not putting basic practices in place. Over 90% of cyber attacks are caused by human error, and a recent study revealed that 44% of employee mistakes are caused by a lack of awareness of human cybersecurity principles. All too often, companies invest in their technical infrastructure, but the most technically robust of networks can still be undone by an absent-minded click on a phishing email. Using technology to counter the problem, while necessary, is only one part of the whole solution. This demonstrates how Cyber Risk Aware’s partnership with Typetec has come in a time of need, offering a collaborative solution to help businesses defend themselves against cybercrime.
“We are excited to be partnering with Typetec who equally appreciate the importance of teaching positive behaviour changes in cyber awareness through education and training, and offering clients an effective human-centric cyber security strategy.” said Stephen Burke, CEO and Co-Founder of Cyber Risk Aware.
Typetec is Ireland’s leading provider of security-as-a-service solutions, including email protection, web filtering, online backup, anti-virus and security in Mobile Device Management, and helps organisations digitally transform the way they work to ensure they are resilient and ready to tackle any cyber threats. As with Cyber Risk Aware, Typetec stay ahead of the latest cyber trends, following innovative solutions and focusing on support to ensure some of Ireland’s biggest companies are secure at all times. This is demonstrated by their decision to join up with like-minded and cutting-edge cyber security company Cyber Risk Aware, to offer their revolutionary Real Time training and education platform, recently recognised by Gartner for its innovative and unique solution, delivering the right message to the right user at the exact time of need.
“Humans are the first point of attack and that risk is increasing exponentially.” said Stephen Burke, CEO and Co-Founder of Cyber Risk Aware. “We cannot continue to keep delivering training in the same way as the last few decades. Cyber Risk Aware is leading the way through innovation, not following the herd in only providing ‘scheduled training courses’, but by offering multi-lingual, Real Time learning solutions that cannot be rivalled.”
Cyber Risk Aware’s partnership with Typetec brings together a united defence against cybercrime, offering a multifaceted partnership whereby Cyber Risk Aware’s preventative training systems are being implemented and managed through Typetec. Complimenting each other’s strengths, this union will fortify clients’ systems to help manage the ever rampant threat of cyber attacks, making the process of cyber security highly efficient, cost effective and easy to implement.
