We address the human factor at the heart of cyber-security

People are often seen as the weakest link in the cyber-security chain. But we believe that if staff are engaged in the right way, then they can transform your security culture for the better. We deliver online content, tools and resources that spark and nurture these transformative conversations – and turn the human workforce into a human firewall.

And if you’re a VAR, MSP or Systems Integrator, we’re the only channel partner that can make that human firewall happen for your customers, too!

WEBINAR: Tues 27th June 2017: 11.00am -12.00pm


BYOD – Working Collaboratively to Develop Secure Mobile Practices


Since it first became an issue in the workplace, back in 2009, Bring Your Own Device has gathered momentum year on year, and research shows that 85% of organisations now allow their employees to use smart devices in the workplace. Whilst the argument that smart technology boosts productivity, has proved unstoppable, the problem still remains of how to manage the unsecure data, and networks which these devices introduce to a controlled business environment.


In this webinar, Layer 8 introduces the issues and challenges posed by BYOD for security teams, and provides a range of suggestions for setting up a collaborative approach to managing it.
