* Preventing phishing and vishing (telephone) scams, including what to watch out for when identifying them
* Checking common mistakes with cyber security settings on devices that are in use on your organisation’s network.

* Non-standard devices and preventing offline (face-to-face) social engineering, which can often be hard to detect, especially if it comes from someone you know.
* Password policies and preventing credential sharing between end users at your organisation.
* Alternative authentication, such as biometrics, system cyber security patching and centralised reporting.
