Your IT Department was formed in Nottingham in 2009 with a simple vision: to provide customer-focused, high-quality IT services to local businesses that go beyond simply fixing computers and providing hardware. Your IT was built on the MSP model of proactive IT maintenance and client partnership. The company provides services to businesses throughout the East Midlands and beyond.
We spoke with Lee Hewson, CEO of Your IT Department, to learn why KnowBe4 was the best choice for security awareness training for their legal clients.
Why is security awareness training so important for legal firms?
"Stolen credentials used in the majority of successful security breaches start with a social engineering attack. This is an alarming fact that underlines the fact that staff are at the front line of the battle against cyber criminals.
In a Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) thematic review of cybercrime, 60% of firms said their biggest potential vulnerability to cybercrime was linked to their staff's knowledge and behaviours, and the SRA said this reflected its findings that most incidents occurred due to individual errors and misunderstanding rather than systems being hacked. How can a company expect their employees to be safe if they are not properly trained?
What's shocking is that the SRA discovered that 20% of firms had never provided specific cybersecurity training to their employees, and more than half of those that had failed to keep track of who had received it. This is completely unbelievable!"
What distinguishes KnowBe4 from other competitors in the security awareness space?
"Choosing KnowBe4 was a relatively simple decision for us. KnowBe4 is the industry leader in security awareness! The fact that the content is constantly updated is also a big plus because it prevents stagnation.
As a large vendor, Brigantia's relationship with KnowBe4 ensures that we are never left in the dark. Brigantia can assist with anything that is needed. While Brigantia's managed service offering is fantastic!"
Why has your IT department chosen to partner with Brigantia?
"Brigantia has been a partner of ours for four years, and we have found them to be extremely helpful and supportive.
Many businesses in the channel use the term "value-added," but we have discovered that Brigantia has truly added value to our business!
We have a wonderful relationship and I consider myself to be a true partner. Our account manager is always available to us, and we've received assistance with marketing, promotion, events, and education as a company."
