Like accounting firms, administrative offices are at risk of becoming victims of a cyber-attack. You too have a lot of valuable information to retrieve. Not just your own but your clients’ as well. Insufficient security can cost you and your clients dearly.
In case you have the idea that you are already well protected, let us shake you up. Another administrative office also thought it was well taken care of. Until they were shut down for days by ransomware in 2017. Investigation revealed that the hackers got in very easily through easy passwords and insufficient security. Much hassle with the IT company in question followed. They ended up paying for most of the costs, but the administrative office was held liable for a third. Money and energy could have been much better spent.
And oh yes, human errors are still in a small corner.
That could be better for you, right?
Administrative offices are very interesting to hackers. Why?

“After receiving a lot of phishing emails, we decided to do a phishing test last year to test the cyber awareness of our employees. During this test, we sent fake emails to see how many would click a possibly harmful link. The result? 29.4% did, which was higher than expected. After using Guardey for only a few weeks the scores had improved by 84%.”View Case Study

“Socially, we may have a role. We as tax professionals and accountants should protect both ourselves and clients. We are their confidants, both for tax and financial questions and more than that.

Gamification is adding game elements into non-game environments, such as security awareness training, to increase participation and foster active learning.
Traditional security awareness training can often be dry and boring. With gamification, the complex subject matter is transformed into an engaging and memorable experience.
By integrating game elements such as challenges, quizzes and rewards, it incentivizes users to actively learn. This makes the training more enjoyable and fosters a sense of competition and achievement. This combination drives better retention and application of cyber security knowledge.
Research shows that up to 90% of the learnings from yearly or even quarterly training are forgotten within a few weeks. Guardey was built to keep its users aware of cyber threats 365 days a year. The game comes with short, weekly challenges that slowly builds up the user’s knowledge and eventually drives lasting behavior change.
Guardey covers a wide array of topics to train users about all currently relevant cyber threats, put together in collaboration with ethical hackers and educationalists. The topics covered include phishing, remote work, password security, CEO fraud, ransomware, smishing, and much more.
Every challenge takes up to three minutes to complete.
Yes. ISO27001, NIS2, and GDPR all require that all employees receive appropriate security awareness training. Guardey is always up-to-date with the latest cyber threats, policies, and procedures.
Cybersecurity awareness training is crucial for all employees, not just specific roles. Every staff member can potentially be a target or an unwitting entry point for cyber attacks. Training helps create a security-focused culture and minimizes risks for the entire organization.
While certain roles may require specialized training, a foundational level of training should be accessible to everyone.
Guardey is available in English, Dutch, Italian, French, Spanish, German, Polish, Swedish and Danish.
