• Official launch of Grant Thornton Cybersecurity Academy

Grant Thornton (Cyprus) Cybersecurity Ltd announces the launch of Grant Thornton Cybersecurity Academy in partnership with ICSI - International Cybersecurity Institute, UK.

Grant Thornton Cybersecurity Academy provides a full suite of managed services, across all aspects of employee security behavior, delivering constant monitoring and protection in relation to clients’ susceptibility to phishing; including online and classroom Security Awareness Training (GCHQ and CREST Accredited Training) bundled at no additional cost with a White Label Learning Management System (LMS), Simulated Phishing Attacks and Phishing Incident Response. All courses combine real-world experience with superior content to provide results-oriented training.

“The ongoing education and the awareness of end-users in topics like Information Security, Data Privacy, Investigations, AML etc. has become mandatory and most importantly a legal obligation after the introduction of various regulations and directives such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) but also with the dramatic increase and various types of cyber-attacks. Organisations now have the obligation and need to train their employees in an efficient and effective way and the academy can help them with their educational needs.”, said Christos Makedonas, Managing Director of Grant Thornton (Cyprus) Cybersecurity Ltd.

 “I am excited for this partnership and I would like to thank Grant Thornton (Cyprus) Cybersecurity Ltd, for giving us this opportunity for collaboration in response to the growing threats of cyber-crimes and the resulting demand for data security and protection.” added George Thrasyvoulou, Managing Director of ICSI - International Cybersecurity Institute, UK.
