Provide training to teach employees to recognize and report phishing, ransomware and other types of cyber attacks

Why launch a cybersecurity awareness training program at your workplace? In addition to training now being a common requirement for cybersecurity insurance policies, our platform reduces cyber risk for your organization and cuts down the number of cyber incidents that your IT team has to respond to.

Here's how CIRA Cybersecurity Awareness Training can help save your IT team time in launching a training program.

Canadian phishing emails

More effective training with pre-built courses and phishing templates designed for the Canadian workplace.

Easy deployment

Technical set-up is a breeze and our friendly staff provide resources that help build a culture of cybersecurity awareness at your organization.

Gamified training experience

Cyber risk scores, badges and rewards engage your staff so their training actually sticks.

We’ve had nothing but really positive feedback from staff that have come up to us personally and said, ‘Hey, we’re learning a lot of stuff that we never knew before, and the platform provides this to us in a very easy way.’

Kevin Caisse Director of IT, Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technology
