About CybSafe

In the ever-evolving digital landscape, one cybersecurity risk looms larger than any other – the human factor. Rather than being the problem, however, people represent a solution and an enormous opportunity to develop an effective cyber defense.

A one-size-fits-all approach simply cannot address the nuances of human psychology. There is no cybersecurity panacea. That’s why CybSafe takes a radically different approach.

Employees make mistakes. Clicking malicious links, reusing passwords, skirting security policies. These unsafe behaviors open the door to data breaches, financial crimes, and reputational damage. Traditional awareness training tries to address this through generalized e-learning modules and phishing tests. But these reactive tactics often fail to resonate. Completion rates for standard computer-based training remain low. Even repeated simulations only spur short-term behavioral change.

Why? Because each employee is different. Their motivations, personalities, and risk profiles vary. CybSafe believes managing human risk requires a deep understanding of individual security behaviors, risks, and motivational drivers. It is creating technology that analyzes and influences human factors – transforming enterprise security from the inside out.

Its solution is a cloud-based platform that leverages behavioral data to provide security leaders with a 360-degree view of their organization’s cybersecurity culture. Powered by SebDB, the world’s cybersecurity behavior database, it delivers evidence-based insights into the relationship between behaviors and risks, enabling decisions based on data rather than guesswork.

This perspective enables precisely targeted policies, training, and nudges to improve security across the employee base. It closes the loop between data, analysis, and response, and the results speak for themselves. It’s customers have achieved up to a 90% reduction in vulnerable phishing clicks, an 85% improvement in cyber confidence, and over a 50% better adoption of security best practices after deploying CybSafe.

CybSafe quantifies risk reduction using before-and-after data, validating the ROI on human-centric behavioral security. Its suite of products – GUIDE PHISH, RESPOND – forms the backbone of this approach, addressing unique needs and challenges at each step of the journey. GUIDE, the cornerstone of Its scientific approach, measures specific security behaviors efficiently to meet training compliance requirements.

Accompanied by Its PHISH simulations, RESPOND completes the loop by automating security interventions, empowering organizations to take targeted actions in response to emerging threats. Leading the charge at CybSafe is CEO and founder Oz Alashe MBE, a former UK Special Forces Lieutenant Colonel.

Today, CybSafe is used by close to 400 organizations across 15 countries and is expanding the company’s global reach with entrance into the North American market. This includes new leadership presence in Boston, MA, reinforcing CybSafe’s commitment to further growth in 2023 and beyond. CybSafe’s customer growth is expected to accelerate globally with a broader vision and expectations on new business focus on SMBs and enterprise marquee logos in the North American market and regional verticals.

CybSafe believes everyone deserves to live, work, and thrive in a safe digital world. Its team combines expertise in behavioral science, risk management, and human dynamics to pioneer a new era of cyber understanding.
