A New Konect-ion

Our new partner, Konect Consult recently made this announcement in the UK. “We are delighted to be working with Stapleton International to develop and roll out their Cyber Risk Management programmes. Stapleton International recognised a gap in cyber security training and intervention following discussion with their clients. It became clear that many organisations are unaware of how vulnerable they may be, or indeed what the knowledge and understanding levels amongst staff was.

Stapleton International offer training to raise staff awareness of how their day to day work and personal activities can be the gateway that allows the threat to become a reality is critical. Following on from awareness raising Stapleton can undertake covert interventions that highlight key ‘pressure’ points and areas of weakness. They work very closely with leading industry partners to be able to design and implement bespoke IT solutions. This is supported by their University partners world class research and higher-level university accredited courses.” Welcome on board to the team at Konect.

Under recent consultation announced by the UK Government, firms may face fines up to £17m or 4% of global turnover for not taking effective measures to prevent cyber hacking of their systems and networks being crippled – similar to earlier this summer with the NHS systems.

Minister for digital Matt Hancock said: “We want the UK to be the safest place in the world to live and be online, with our essential services and infrastructure prepared for the increasing risk of cyber attack and more resilient against other threats such as power failures and environmental hazards.”

Is it time to think about your organisation and just how ‘Cyber Savvy’ your staff are?
