Supports your frontline workers in the fight against cybercrime.

In today’s digital landscape, cybersecurity threats are more prevalent than ever, and businesses must remain vigilant to protect sensitive information and assets. While traditional office environments have access to robust cybersecurity measures and training, what about factory, retail and frontline workers who may share terminals, lack email addresses, or operate in non-traditional setups? That’s where OutThink comes in.

Are you concerned about the cybersecurity risks faced by your factory workers? Do you want to ensure that every member of your team is equipped to better handle potential cyberattacks and safeguard themselves and the organisation’s critical data and assets? OutThink provides a tailored solution designed specifically for the unique challenges faced by blue-collar workers.

At OutThink, we understand that cybersecurity awareness training should be accessible, engaging, and relevant to the realities of your workforce. Our cutting-edge software allows your employees to access training modules seamlessly through shared terminals, eliminating the need for individual email addresses or traditional sign-ons. Whether your workers operate heavy machinery, assembly lines, retail checkouts, or logistics, our personalized security awareness training adapts to their working environment, enabling them to identify and mitigate potential threats effectively.

With OutThink, cybersecurity training becomes a continuous journey rather than a one-time event. Our software ensures that your employees can access and complete training whenever it suits their schedule. Whether they are starting a new shift or need a refresher on the latest cyber threats, our platform is always ready to help them feel empowered with the knowledge and skills necessary to defend against cybercrime.

The Cybersecurity Challenge for Blue-Collar:

The manufacturing industry faces an alarming cybersecurity challenge with a significant number of businesses falling victim to cybercrime. Recent reports indicate that almost half of Britain’s manufacturers have experienced cyber-attacks within the past year, resulting in substantial financial losses for over a quarter of affected companies. These attacks range from simple human errors to complex targeted breaches, posing a wide range of risks. Production stoppages and reputational damage are among the most common consequences, with 65% of attacks leading to disruptions in production. Furthermore, potential customers now demand assurances regarding an organization’s cybersecurity measures before entering into contracts *1

As manufacturers increasingly rely on advanced technologies, defending against cyber threats becomes an essential priority. Ignoring this issue is no longer an option. While the industry has shown increased awareness of the importance of cybersecurity, there is still much work to be done in implementing comprehensive protection measures.

OutThink’s Unique Solution – Empowering Cybersecurity Awareness for All Workers: 

At OutThink we understand that cybersecurity awareness is vital for all workers, regardless of their work location, device ownership, access to individual terminals, or email availability. That’s why we have developed a unique solution that ensures every member of your workforce can receive and benefit from comprehensive cybersecurity training.

Our software breaks down the barriers faced by factory, retail, and front-line workers, enabling them to access personalized training modules without the need for their own devices or individual email accounts. Whether your employees share terminals or lack traditional sign-on methods, our solution ensures that cybersecurity training is available to all, anytime, and anywhere.

  • Access via Shared Terminals: We recognize that not all workers have dedicated devices. With our software, multiple employees can access the training modules seamlessly through shared terminals, eliminating the need for individual devices.
  • No Work Email Required: Many workers, especially those in non-office roles, may not have a work email address. That doesn’t mean they should miss out on vital cybersecurity training. Our software does not rely on email addresses, ensuring that every worker can participate and enhance their cybersecurity awareness. Personalized access can be had through a simple logon and pin number or the scanning of a badge or individual QR code, integrated with existing workflows.
  • Tailored to Unique Working Environments: We understand that different work environments present distinct cybersecurity challenges. Our training modules are specifically designed to address these challenges, providing personalized content that aligns with the specific requirements of factory, retail, and front-line workers.
  • Flexible and Accessible: Traditional training programs often come with time constraints and scheduling difficulties. With OutThink, cybersecurity awareness training becomes flexible and widely accessible. Workers can access the modules from shared terminals, in multiple locations, and complete the training whenever it suits their schedules.
  • Engaging and Interactive Modules: We believe that effective training should be engaging and interactive. Our cybersecurity awareness training incorporates interactive elements, quizzes, simulations, and real-life scenarios to enhance learning and retention. By making the training experience enjoyable and interactive, we ensure that workers actively participate and internalize cybersecurity practices.
