Key vulnerabilities and resilience gaps were identified. They could submit evidence of the exercise for continued ISPS compliance.

The Outcome:

After a year of delivering courses for UCAS staff gave excellent feedback reporting how fun and helpful they found the course.

What They Said:

“I was hugely impressed by the Social Engineering Awareness Course run by Red Goat Cyber Security. It is one of the first courses I’ve encountered where those who attended it have continued to talk about it long afterwards; a sure sign that the key messages imparted by the trainer have stuck. The course was packed full of guidance and tips on how you can make it more difficult for cyber criminals to worm their way into your organisation and its finances, and even our most seasoned information and cyber security professionals found it thought-provoking and informative. This was such a valuable experience in raising awareness of the methods used by cyber criminals that we are looking to repeat the course for different sections of our workforce on a regular basis.”
