Social engineering is a hacking technique that is now being used more than ever. It deceives people for the purpose of collecting sensitive information, or making them perform certain actions that can compromise your company’s system and equipment.

It’s likely that you’ve already implemented security protocols and mechanisms in your company, but have you implemented protocols to avoid a social engineering incident?

Through the means of security training, we teach you and your team to remember the different cyberthreats that are present in today’s world, and to know how to counteract them, so infringement on your company can be avoided.


What do you obtain from cybersecurity training?

Stronger protection against cyberattacks

Greater control over the type of data you can download, as well as control over system access

Lower probability of suffering from a cyberattack caused by misinformation

Is it really necessary?

Attached files in an email are what enable attackers to spread viruses.


A lot of the cyberthreats that you discover every day may not have been addressed or specified the right way. For the majority of the time, viruses are hidden in a link or in the attached files that arrive at your employee’s inbox. Once downloaded, the user gives the malware access to your company’s system without even realising it.

The security would also be put at risk when employees and external workers access the system via their personal devices. It’s still considered as a hazard because they work outside the protection methods that were implemented in the company. Thus, they become a way of entry for hackers.

We must highlight the fact that social engineering takes advantage of the faults that a human can commit, such as having:


Insecure passwords


Too much trust in other users


Little awareness about cybersecurity

Information security training for employees and external workers in your company is necessary if you want to reduce the number of vulnerabilities that you have in your organisation. Vulnerabilities can cause attacks to occur on a daily basis, which can compromise the productivity and trust within your business.


How does information security training work?

Basic Training

Addressed to all users that manage a device that is connected to the internet, especially to employees and external workers in your organisation.

Technical Training

Oriented towards the IT team of a company or institution.

Ethical Hacking Training

Aimed at technical profiles that want to acquire advanced knowledge in cybersecurity.

We personalise every training session that we conduct, so they follow the necessities of your organisation, depending on your team’s profile:


Due to the nature of the information they manage, it’s necessary to have basic security training to preserve confidential data within the entity.

Managers and Directors

The privileges that those profiles have in an organisation are converted into one of the main objectives behind social engineering.

IT Department

Technical training for system administrators that work with firewalls, VPN, and authentication protocols.

Private Training

Personalised private sessions according to the necessities of an entity’s work productivity.

Group Training

Specified training in your company for your team, or for institutional events that deal with issues in ethical hacking and cybersecurity.

The objective behind cybersecurity training is to make users know how to detect threats, and how to defend themselves from a cyberattack. It also highlights the importance of having devices equipped with the latest upgrades to keep your security up to date.
