Santander launches interactive cybersecurity training

Santander has launched an interactive cybersecurity training programme.

The initiative, called ‘Cyber Heroes’, is based on training previously shared with the bank’s 200,000 employees worldwide.

The training is now open to anyone to use, as the bank says it wants to help raise cyber awareness and help people avoid fraud.

“Supporting customers and our communities with initiatives like Cyber Heroes is central to our purpose of helping people and businesses prosper,” said Daniel Barriuso, group chief information security officer, Banco Santander. “This interactive and accessible training is already helping our employees and we look forward to supporting more people to stay safe online in everyday situations with Santander’s cyber tips.”

In the training, people are presented with everyday situations that anyone could face online.

Users are then offered simple security tips and advice to help protect them against scams, such as phishing and smishing.

Santander has also offered additional educational materials which are available to download at the end of each module, including a guide for secure online shopping and step-by-step infographics.
