Cyber Security Awareness Consultant

We are looking for cyber security awareness specialists to join the team in the Amsterdam office to support the growth of the practice.

Cyber Security Awareness:
When it comes to security, the human firewall is the first line of defense, as well as the weakest links in the (privacy) chain. To minimize these threats, it is vital that organizations take to promoting a culture of security, not simply protocol and policy, which promotes security as a mindset rather than tasks to be checked off a to-do list. You will work together with our clients to put their employees, decision-makers, and even physical and digital infrastructure to the test in real-time, without the real-life consequences. The following are just some of the training and gamification techniques we use to raise awareness, train, and develop a culture of security in business.

  • Cyber Security Awareness Programs:
  • Our iterative approach entails an assessment of the current maturity level of an organization’s secure culture, followed by target setting for cultural aspirations. Through a step-by-step approach transformational changes and improvements are taken in order to establish a strong secure culture. Those changes are evaluated continuously and iteratively, whereby the level of secure culture is increased.
  • Crisis Leadership Simulations:
  • Crisis Leadership Simulations mimic reality, and train employees and decision-makers to make the right decisions, when an actual crisis does occur.
  • Social Engineering:
  • Red-teaming, tailgating, phone and email phishing are just some of the ways in which we test whether an organization can keep out unauthorized personnel.
