Cyber Security

CybSafe is a behavioural security platform and one of the UK’s highest potential cyber security companies. Its use of data modelling for human security behaviours and habits is a game-changer, helping organisations manage people-related cyber risk using behavioural science and data analytics.

People are universally recognised as a critical part of the cyber resilience challenge and account for 90 per cent of breaches. Despite this, approaches to the human aspect of resilience have seen limited progress.

CybSafe is transforming the security industry by pioneering the use of data to address the human aspect of cyber resilience. Leveraging proprietary and third-party data, alongside robust behavioural psychology, CybSafe’s software tracks, measures and understands individual security behaviour. It delivers instant, personalised support for users, at the appropriate moment.

CybSafe takes a long-term view of behaviour change by helping create and shape security cultures in organisations. The company is pioneering the prediction of people-related risk. Its risk models and algorithms enable security teams to predict areas of user-related vulnerability in changing environments.  

CybSafe was launched to market in 2017 by cyber resilience and intelligence expert, Oz Alashe MBE, a former Lieutenant Colonel in the British Army and UK Special Forces. His background gives him unique insight into the socio-technical realities of cyber security and the sensitivities around changing human behaviour. CybSafe’s team is passionate and diverse. It includes former UK Government cyber security specialists, behavioural scientists, data scientists and software engineers. CybSafe’s software is relied on by over 350 organisations in 15 countries, including Credit Suisse, Air Canada, HSBC and NHS Trusts. It is accredited by NCSC and CIISec.
