QA teams up with CybSafe for more engaging cyber security training

QA has announced a collaborative partnership with CybSafe to provide more effective cyber security training.

Informed by cyber psychology and educational theory, CybSafe combines AI and data analytics with behavioural science to improve awareness, behaviour and culture surrounding cyber security.

Richard Beck, QA’s director of cyber, believes the partnership will benefit customers and further enhance the company’s cyber portfolio by adding an innovative cyber awareness solution.

“CybSafe offers an exciting way to introduce a behavioural change focused solution to organisations and ultimately helps reduce risk, a key driver for our customers,” he commented.

Oz Alashe, chief executive of CybSafe, added that his GCHQ-certified and CPD-accredited platform takes a different approach to the tired ‘tick-box’ format, using data science, psychology and behavioural science increase engagement, interaction and retention rates.

“More importantly, behaviour is demonstrably and positively affected resulting in reduced cyber risk,” he commented.

QA is one of the UK’s largest learning services organisations and the only end-to-end cyber curriculum, developing skills and capabilities for apprentices to business leaders with a client base covering 80 per cent of the FTSE 250.
