In a hyper-connected digital world, businesses and governments must be able to safely perform their mission in the face of accelerating cyber risks. Cyberattacks are the result of technical and human vulnerabilities, many of which could be prevented and remediated if organizations better prepared their employees to take on cybersecurity responsibilities aligned with their roles.
At DarkMatter Group, we believe that prevention is the best defense, and each member of the team should be a part of an organization’s cyber defensive capabilities. This can only be achieved by developing cyber-smart people and instilling an organization-wide cybersecurity posture.
That is why we created Cyber Smart – a holistic cyber awareness program that reduces risks by enhancing employees’ ability to anticipate and mitigate cyber threats.
Devised by world-class cybersecurity experts based in the UAE, Cyber Smart takes a global-local approach. Anchored in global standards and requirements, our program focuses on the needs of organizations in the Middle East.
Compliant with the Information Assurance Standards of the UAE, Cyber Smart provides the knowledge companies need to improve their overall security awareness. In line with the Competitive Knowledge Economy pillar of UAE Vision 2021, our program enables local businesses and governments to become smart, safe, and cyber-resilient.
Cyber Smart follows global standards, such as GDPR and ISO 27001 while also incorporating localized, diversified content focused on the region-specific applications. The program delivers key insights acquired through our close collaboration with local enterprises and governments.
Cyber Smart is a comprehensive, year-long program focused on aligning delivery with the client's learning objectives and local learning styles. A dedicated project manager develops a tailor-made plan that reduces human risks by combining learning activities and simulations with communications and engagement activities.
Cyber Smart is adaptable to every level of digital maturity. At DarkMatter, we assess, train, and support transformation of local companies and institutions. Through programs like Cyber Smart, organizations gain the knowledge they need to increase their cyber resilience.
When properly trained, your employees become the organization's greatest cybersecurity protection asset. By blending innovative technologies, realistic simulations, and immersive learning modules, Cyber Smart goes beyond the compliance approach and makes cybersecurity a permanent part of your organization’s DNA.
Despite being a vital element of cybersecurity risk, human vulnerabilities are often overlooked and dismissed as difficult to identify and measure. Cyber Smart provides your organization with the necessary metrics as well as ways to track risk-reducing activities.
Making use of advances in psychology, learning-science research, and new technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, Cyber Smart dynamically adapts to the personal needs and learning style of each user. By promoting individual achievement, our custom sessions ensure that all your employees get the maximum value out of the program.
Cyber Smart leverages assessment, advanced reporting, and engagement tracking to identify gaps and design a roadmap, so your organization can become more cyber resilient.
The program caters to employees at all levels and across all departments. Learning activities are designed to capture both technical and non-technical insights and provide specific guidance for individuals working in finance, IT, and client-facing roles as well as C-level and executive decision makers.
Cyber Smart empowers your personnel to be more aware of cyber threats in their daily activities and fosters a proactive attitude.
By raising awareness at all organizational levels, our program helps to increase compliance with policies and practice.
Powered by the cloud, our Learning Management System (LMS) is easily accessed at your employees’ convenience and does not require software installation.
The Cyber Smart program has an integrated framework, structured to cover major areas of cybersecurity awareness within a fast-moving digital environment. Throughout the program, participants will receive continuous learning and reinforcement as well as insights and recommendations.
