Otta's take on CybSafe

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

The vast majority of cybersecurity breaches (up to 90% of them in the UK) are largely the result not of system vulnerabilities but of simple human error. This creates a problem for security awareness and training (SA&T) procedures: humans aren’t uniform, so any attempts to avoid human error can’t be either.

CybSafe's platform provides microlearning content and activity nudges to get users fostering better practices and understanding when it comes to their role in their company’s cybersecurity. Unlike more procedural SA&T approaches, CybSafe ensures its training and nudges are dynamically tailored through the use of micro-experiments, and more embedded into company culture through the use of interactive apps.

This has yielded materially substantial cybersecurity outcomes, so it's no surprise that CybSafe has won the confidence of investors and enterprise clients alike - HSBC, Credit Suisse, and NHS Trusts all number among its client base.

With cybersecurity becoming a major concern for smaller and multinational enterprises alike, CybSafe is tapping into a large and growing market. With strong institutional heft behind it, it looks set for strong growth.
