Beauceron Security

David Shipley, founder and CEO of Beauceron Security, was responsible for security awareness training at a Canadian university. After looking at existing solutions he decided that something better was needed. (Before you ask, a Beauceron is a sheepdog from Beauce, France.)

Beauceron Security has developed security awareness training tools that include an element of gamification. Each end user is given a score based on factors that include testing their knowledge, reporting phishing emails, and taking corrective action if they miss something.

Driving positive behavior change is always a challenge in cybersecurity. Beuceron drives change by providing the right information at the right time for employees to care about their role in cybersecurity. Keep in mind that cybersecurity awareness is different for employees and executives so having different approaches for different levels of target value is important.

Their set of cloud based tools is also highly customizable so that new phishing methods or things that are unique to a customer organization can easily be built in to the training progam.
