Giacom announces partnership with usecure to help mitigate end-user cyber risk


Giacom has entered into a partnership with usecure, a comprehensive security awareness platform, offering its customers access to its Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing resources to help mitigate end-user cyber risk and drive secure user behaviour.

With many businesses still working from home, it’s crucial for companies to ensure they continuously educate their employees to become more security conscious and be able to spot cyber attacks. But even with the most advanced endpoint protection, it only takes one user to accidentally open the backdoor to a cyber attack, ultimately putting the whole organisation at risk. 

With 95% of cybersecurity breaches caused by human error, usecure’s intelligent training platform identifies users’ individual cybersecurity knowledge gaps by enrolling them onto a training programme unique to their risk profile. It then crafts a personalised programme which addresses their unique learning needs, prioritising courses covering their most vulnerable areas of cybersecurity.

usecure’s Cyber Security Awareness Training comprises of the following four components:

  1. uLearn (Automated Security Awareness Training) – Delivers bite-sized videos and interactive security awareness training, tailored to each user’s unique vulnerabilities, to drive secure user behaviour.
  2. uPhish (Automated Phishing Simulation Software) – To monitor and reduce user vulnerability to sophisticated phishing, organisations can learn how susceptible their workforces are to ultra-targeted spear-phishing campaigns and monitor vulnerability trends over time
  3. uBreach (Email Exposure Checker) – uBreach monitors thousands of data dumps, paste sites and breached data forums, locating exposed email accounts before they can be leveraged for targeted attacks in order to identify and safeguard users' exposed email accounts.
  4. uPolicy (Simplified Policy Management) – Keeping users up to date with proactive policy management software by ensuring they are aware of any relevant policy changes and eliminate the inefficiencies of traditional procedures.

The simplified solution is easy-to-use and offers a range of short video, blog-style and interactive cybersecurity content which is designed to engage every type of learner. The uLearn course library offers a range of information security, compliance and custom modules which are updated and refreshed regularly to ensure they remain up to date with the latest information.

Charles Preston, CEO of usecure, comments: “Exclusively built for growth-minded MSPs, we’re excited to be working with Giacom to help secure their clients’ human firewall with our comprehensive security awareness training solution.
