The National Protective Security Authority (NPSA) approached 3 Sided Cube because they wanted an app that gives users a more immersive experience in learning about and reporting upon online threats. In recent years, there has been an increase in malicious online approaches by organised criminals and nation-states who are trying to target individuals in the UK. Several news outlets have reported on the threat from espionage in particular and so NPSA wanted to develop an app that had practical advice, guidance and tools.
NPSA wanted a way in which to train their teams in various government departments and key sectors to recognise and avoid falling victim to these threats. The focus is very social media heavy and they wanted to provide tools to offer a learning experience that will make users more aware of the threats on various platforms and how to avoid them.
Along with the learnings, they also wanted users to have the ability to put their learning to use with the profile reviewer and when required have the ability to easily report suspicious profiles so that NPSA could investigate and take action to review and put a stop to that particular malicious account.
