How does it work? Send users a Gap Analysis Questionnaire

You could have users that are amazing at spotting phishing attacks, never failed a simulation and continuously report them. So why waste their time teaching them something that they're already great at?

The idea of the gap analysis questionnaire is to gain a full understanding of a users security knowledge. Once completed, they will receive a tailored 12-month training program designed to help educate them in the areas they scored weakest in.

Customers have the option of hand-picking courses, enrolling users into specific training courses as frequently as they like, or can do a combination of both!

What are some of the top cybersecurity threats for 2023?

Here are some of the top cybersecurity threats organisations are facing in 2023. 

Social Engineering
Any network is hackable if an employee can be duped into sharing access.

Third-Party Exposure
Vendors, clients, and app integrations with poor security can provide access to an otherwise well-protected network.

Configuration Mistakes
Your cybersecurity investments are only as strong as they are configured correctly.

Human Activated Risk
User education and visibility for IT is essential to ensure those with network access and those handling sensitive data are maintaining cyber best practices.


Hackers are targeting back-ups and using extortion more and more to push receiving the ransom payment from their victims.

Mobile Devices

Every mobile device is a gateway to your network and sensitive business data.

Lack of resource and expertise

Human-led cyber attacks require human-led threat hunting. Unfortunately, skilled threat hunters are few and far between. 

Internet of Things (IoT)
Smart technology users may not realise that any IoT device can be hacked to obtain network access. Securing your network starts with understanding what's on it.

Is there any obligation when opting for a free cybersecurity service by Spear Shield?

No there isn't! The team will just use that as an opportunity for us to work together on a project and prove the value we can provide you as a future strategic partner.

How can I reduce my employees click-rate?

This is an area where the cybersecurity experts at Spear Shield thrive! We've worked with organisations to help reduce employee click rates from 70+% to 0% without the need for any end-user awareness training.

Online training content doesn't work.

Classroom based training gets forgotten.

Static email banners get ignored.
