Cell Signaling Technology Leverages Integrated Cyber's Employee-Focused Cybersecurity Service

Nov 28, 2023

Vancouver, BC – November 28, 2023 – Integrated Cyber Solutions Inc. (CSE:ICS). Ransomware will attack a company every two seconds, and human behavior is responsible for 85% of successful hacks. With the ever-growing threat facing companies today, Cell Signaling Technology is doing something about it. They engaged Integrated Cyber to deploy and manage its employee awareness and engagement training service, powered by KnowBe4, the world's largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform.

Cybersecurity is vital for Cell Signaling Technology, which develops the world's highest quality, innovative research products to accelerate biological understanding. "Our scientific data is our company's lifeline and vital to advancing our work related to supporting cancer research and the use of antibodies," said Hasan Barakat, Cell Signaling Technology, CISO. "We engaged Integrated Cyber and have improved our security profile by training and empowering our employees to recognize potential cyber threats and act accordingly. Additionally, the increased cyber intelligence is helping our employees and their families remain cyber safe outside of the office."

Frequently, employees are perceived as contributors to the cyber predicament, necessitating the implementation of safeguards and guidelines to prevent them from inadvertently causing harm. Integrated Cyber believes that employees can and should play a role in the resolution rather than being part of the problem. The Company emphasizes the importance of ongoing education, awareness, testing, and management in a supportive and non-judgmental manner as crucial elements for achieving cybersecurity success.

"We believe that cybersecurity awareness must be continuous and digestible. We live in a world where information is consumed and retained in small bites vs. the traditional annual 4-hour mandatory training class," said Alan Guibord, CEO of Integrated Cyber. "Cell Signaling Technology understands this value and has seen how we efficiently train their teams without extensive downtime – while maximizing the cyber profile of their business."

Integrated Cyber's high-touch managed service delivers maximum value from the KnowBe4 platform. The Company provides constant awareness communication, training, and testing while actively analyzing campaign results and driving changes across employee behavior and security systems to ensure maximum participation and corrective action.
