CybSafe goes live with behavioural science platform and announces seed round
26th April 2017
CybSafe, a new member of L39 and a cloud-based platform to help address the human risk of cybersecurity, has launched its behavioural-science based platform and also announced a seed round.
The seed funding has been acquired from Regulatory Finance Solutions (RFS), a financial services compliance consultancy and will help the startup tackle threats from the inside: the employees.
The team pioneered their e-learning techniques which are grounded in behavioural science.
Oz Alashe MBE, CEO and founder of CybSafe explains: “Businesses recognise that their own staff represent their greatest security vulnerability, but it’s a problem that is costly and difficult to address and this results in cursory attempts to impart information which rarely has the desired effect. CybSafe transforms cyber awareness training from a box-ticking exercise into an immersive, recurring experience that positively changes security-related behaviour.
Most businesses – whether they have an information security team or not – don’t have the expertise, capacity or resource to address the human aspect of cyber security properly. The CybSafe platform gives them the edge and helps them more effectively protect their organisation. We’re harnessing the collective lessons from across the cyber security community and making this available to all.”
