Over the past decade, the myth of reducing information security to configuring network security, installing CCTV cameras and access restriction systems as enough has been shattered. An ever-changing world, new challenges and organisational dynamics contribute to this field being constantly developed and updated.
Modern understandings of information security aim to use holistic approaches using a wide range of activities including people, skills, technology and resource management, which is the direction of our service offering.
The human factor is a key element in any field and information security is no exception. Despite the high-tech security systems that some organisations use, research shows that 95% of security breaches are the result of human error, which is further proof that we need to actively work with people. This is also one of the goals of the Flexible Bit in the context of information security, namely to transform the human from a “weak link” into a “trusted link”.
How do we do it?
There are definitely different approaches to this and the overall one is about building a holistic culture around information security. Important elements in it are training, selection, procedures, values and managers.
Checking the information that job applicants provide in the selection process is our latest service, which we have adapted specifically for the Bulgarian market and legislation. Checking the background and data provided by the candidate with whom you have chosen and intend to sign a contract is a vital stage for some positions, especially in organizations working with standards and frameworks such as ISO 27001, NIST CSF, where they are embedded as comprehensive procedures. We strongly recommend that a similar check be carried out when extending the powers and access to information of current employees or employees who impress us with certain behaviors and attitudes.
Below we offer trainings that we have developed for anyone who wants to develop specific competencies and acquire knowledge in the context of information security. If you are interested in training your team or organization, we will be happy to make a separate meeting and offer the optimal option for you
The training is part of Flexible Bit’s initiative to build awareness in as many people as possible about the basic and simple rules to follow to protect themselves from cyber attacks using social engineering. Classes are held on the 4th Thursday of each month at Zuum and require pre-registration.

Social engineering as a means of cyber attacks is related to psychology and works with our states, so this training covers the moments when we are most susceptible to social engineering. When and how do they occur? How can we protect ourselves? How do social engineers reach our weaknesses?
