Your organisation is under threat from increasing and ever-evolving cyber attacks. Losing data and system availability can damage an organisation's reputation and lead to dramatic loss of profits or future business.

Cyber training

The UK Government has categorised cyber attacks as a Tier One threat to national security, alongside international terrorism. The cost of a single cyber security incident can easily reach six-figure sums and any damage to a company's reputation could lead to dramatic loss of profits or future business.

To help mitigate such risks, your staff need to have the latest knowledge in cyber security. MASS can help your people develop a deep understanding of potential security threats, and the countermeasures you can develop or adopt. Cyber Security training helps to protect corporate assets, and having appropriately trained staff will immediately be apparent to the bottom line.

Working in partnership, MASS is offering, in the UK for the first time, an e-learning library with courses designed to teach all members of an application development team, from quality assurance professionals to software developers, about the importance of secure practices in the application development process.

Training materials, dedicated facilities, specialist trainers, courseware development, and our deep cyber security domain experience ensures that your staff receive the critical knowledge required to maintain appropriate security standards.

Our training facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art resources, or alternatively we can deliver training at your preferred location in the UK or abroad.
