Effective Cybersecurity Training

Are you frustrated with the quality and effectiveness of common security awareness training solutions? 

Many security awareness training solutions are boring, impractical, and not thorough enough to provide your employees with any useful learning lessons. 

SHYLD’s security awareness training platform is more effective than other solutions because it is more:

MAstering the Basics

Starting With The Basics

Most security awareness training solutions simply tell users to create complex passwords, to avoid phishing links, and set up multi-factor authentication (MFA). We have found that most people want to do the right thing, but want more help than other solutions provide. SHYLD fixes this problem by helping people learn the why, the what, and the how related to all components of security awareness training. 

Password Management

The security basis for all systems are passwords. We ensure employee’s consider not just complexity but how passwords are to be considered and best practives for managing them. 

Multi Factor Authentication

Two step? Three Step? More steps? Each login poses a different risk. Modeling this and elevating employee’s personal and professional credential management ensures they are vigilant at all times.

Wifi Security

As nearly our entire work force spends some time working outside of the office awareness of Wifi security is necessary. Your employee’s will not be simply be scolded for bad usage, but we help them implement best practices in their own home.

Social Engineering

Used since the dawn of time is the manipulation of people. We go beyond the what and how to spot Social Engineering into the why’s of its great success.

Internet of Things

Everyday more devices sneak into our life. Awareness is key, but it doesn’t stop there.  We help employee’s make hard decisions about what devices have more risk than they are worth.

Message Encryption

Everyone wants our data! Advertisers, Nation States, Private companies, and even nosy neighbors. We help employees implement more secure  methods of communication in every area of their life. 

Phishing Detection

Emails, Texts, and Phone calls oh my! With so much data online hackers are getting smarter and more persistent on tricking us into giving them sensitive information. We help users detect and respond to these attempts.


Ongoing training is provided dynamically and regularly with our Digital Existence Fortification Effectively Normalizes Security for Everyone product. With a ever increasing attack surface for organizations and our employee’s lives vigilance is our only option to stop hackers before they can start.
