Youth for Christis a worldwide organisation, with its UK operations maintaining over 60 ministries across England, Scotland, and Wales. These are locally focused, locally driven outreach projects where churches work together to reach out to young people in their communities.
Youth for Christ UK headquarters reached out to Supreme Systems about how they could improve their cyber security, to ensure that their data is well protected, in the light of recent news stories indicating that cyber-attack incidents are at an all-time high and showing no signs of abating.
Youth for Christ take the security of the data that they keep very seriously and wanted an independent assessment of their current security provisions and wished to invest in adding further protections. As a part of this process, Supreme Systems recommended a period of Cyber Awareness Training for Youth for Christ staff.
The last line of defence against cyber-attacks for any organisation is the awareness of the people that use their IT systems daily. Youth for Christ recognised this and decided to go ahead with a trial period of Supreme Systems automated Cyber-Training service, delivered in conjunction with one of our award-winning cyber-security partners, and industry leader, KnowBe4.
KnowBe4 Cyber Awareness Training is an automated service that includes simulated phishing attacks, taken from templates designed to accurately mimic real-world attacks and incorporating “user” details in the same way that a real targeted attack would do. The system monitors recipients for any interactions they have with these emails and then delivers targeted training, accordingly, highlighting what the “user” did incorrectly, what the tell-tale signs are and the best practice response when a suspicious email is identified. The training is short and interactive and is itself monitored to ensure that the staff members engage with it.
The service includes access to an online portal that provides a real-time overview of the individual users, as well as an organisational overview, and reports that can be downloaded for Management review and purposes of auditing and compliance.
Here are some examples of the reporting that our KnowBe4 Cyber Awareness Training service provides. Please note that these are included for illustration purposes only and are not taken from the specific service covered or client covered in this article.
Multi-media training resources are also available and can be used to create face-to-face and group training sessions, with the facility to either select from expert pre-made plans or custom made to the client’s own selections.
Over the course of the service delivery, Youth for Christ, the organisation consistently improved on their overall “Risk Scoring” and “Phish-Prone Scoring” – starting at near the average for their industry sector and beating it by a significant margin by the conclusion.
The client was happy with the service and are considering further sessions to be delivered periodically, to maintain the awareness of their staff and update them on new attack types.
Paul Davison, Head of Business & IT at Youth for Christ commented, “KnowBe4 is a useful tool to be able to identify how our staff members were handling their electronic communication, as an organisation you can only go so far in preventing malicious attacks and it is then down to the staff member and their awareness of what they should and shouldn’t be doing. KnowBe4 educates you on good practices and highlights any risk areas. It’s a good tool and thank you to Supreme for suggesting it”
