CybSafe gives you the ability to integrate the CybSafe platform with your Slack workspace.

Currently you can use this integration to send your people any security behaviour goals, CybSafe nudges, or custom nudges.

If you aren’t an administrator in your organisation's Slack, you may need to request help from someone who is.

Connecting the app to CybSafe & sending nudges (GUIDE + and RESPOND only)

Once the app is installed, it will automatically link the Slack account to the CybSafe user that has the same email.

People who have a Slack account linked to their CybSafe account will receive nudges in Slack whenever one is sent either via email or via browser push notifications (or both).

It is not currently possible to send a nudge exclusively via Slack.

After you have clicked "Add to Slack", CybSafe will be added to your Apps and you will be able to see it in your Slack Workspace.

Using the slack app to send security behaviour goals (GUIDE+ only)

As stated before, currently Slack can send users their security behaviour goals they are yet to complete. The platform will push these goals out on a Tuesday at around 11am GMT. The particular one sent will be based on the hierarchy of the security behaviour the goal is associated with. Said hierarchy can be found in SedDB, the world’s most comprehensive cyber security behaviour database.

Syncing with CybSafe

As soon as you’ve installed the Slack app, CybSafe will connect your accounts together. This shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.

Every time the Slack app and CybSafe interact, we check for the possibility of a new user account. Seamlessly syncing behind the scenes so you don’t have to worry about a thing. This sync includes all your people, whether they're newly added to CybSafe or they’ve been with us for a while. Everyone will be sent new nudges!

Have you added new people to your CybSafe account? Enable slack and they’ll be automatically enrolled. Make sure you and your people are using the same email address for both Slack and CybSafe accounts!

CybSafe permissions

Permissions to view Slack channel and conversation info gives us the potential to alert your people. For example, for individuals who might be about to share their password in Slack. Monitoring capabilities let us help you. There is a possibility to trim these permissions down, but this has yet to be implemented.
