We believe People are the key to effective information security

At Behaav, we believe that People are the key to effective information security, because a people-centric approach addresses the root-cause of all information security challenges.

That’s why we help businesses create sustainable security awareness and behavior.

We do this by leveraging a proprietary methodology that assesses knowledge, awareness and behavior; provides highly tailored education; improves skill through simulation; and reduces risk through behavioral change campaigns.

Technology alone incapable of effectively securing information


of global security budgets are  invested in technology

> 90%

of attacks leverage human error to succeed

< 1%

of investments are related to people
