Security Awareness Training Modules: Key Benefits and Features

Security Awareness Training Modules: Key Benefits and Features

Interactivity

  • Focused, "bite-sized" training – Each of our standard modules provides an average of 10 to 15 minutes of interactive training about a specific security topic. End users participate in three to four lessons and end-of-lesson “challenges” to test their understanding of the materials. Our mini-modules are even more targeted, delivering 5 to 7 minutes of education about a topic in one to two lessons and challenges. Our approach is a stark contrast to monolithic training methods, which bombard users with multiple topics in a much lengthier presentation, with quizzes that are not integrated within the training.
  • Employee-driven interactivity – End users must interact with our modules; they set the pace and drive progress, and they are required exhibit a baseline level of proficiency on each lesson’s challenge before progressing. Modules can easily be completed in a single session, but users can use our Resume feature to bookmark their progress and restart a lesson or challenge at a later time if needed.
  • Immediate feedback – End users receive feedback on each challenge question, whether it’s right or wrong. This helps them learn at every step; they will understand why their selection was correct or incorrect rather than seeing a basic “right/wrong” indicator.

Reporting

We go well beyond “training completed” tallies to give you insightful reporting about your training assignments. Dynamic filtering, bar charts, and statistical comparisons give you both high-level and granular looks at your employees’ results and help you gather the business intelligence you need to effectively manage and tailor your efforts. Plus, our Training Leaderboard provides a dashboard-like view of top-performing individuals and departments, making it easy to apply gamification principles to your program to further motivate and engage participants.

Customization Center

Change the content in our training modules to meet your organization's unique needs, at no additional charge. Our self-service customization offers:

  • An industry-first Learning Science Evaluator – Provides guidance to ensure that modules with changed content follow Learning Science Principles that drive better behaviors.
  • Customizable content for maximum relevance – Remove lesson content and associated challenge questions that might not apply to your organization.
  • Customizable passing scores – Set passing scores that align with your organization's knowledge levels and cybersecurity maturity.
  • Dynamic password policy training – Password training content automatically adapts to your organization's password creation and management policies.
In addition, our Training Jackets feature lets you add custom content to the beginning and end of each training module. You can remind users about specific policies, attach a training completion certificate, include a policy acknowledgement screen, and more.

 

Auto-Enrollment

  • Automatic training assignments based on assessment results – Our unique Auto-Enrollment feature — which is available with our ThreatSim® Phishing Simulations and our Predefined CyberStrength® Knowledge Assessments — allows you to automatically deliver training to your most susceptible users. When Auto-Enrollment is enabled, any user who clicks on a ThreatSim simulated phishing attack or who falls below a preset proficiency score on a Predefined CyberStrength assessment can be automatically assigned the licensed training module(s) of your choice.
  • Intuitive learning management system (LMS) – You can access and assign all licensed training modules via our feature-rich, SaaS-based Security Education Platform. Within this purpose-built LMS, you can also customize and schedule assignment reminders and other program communications.

Mobile-Responsive

The majority of our modules are now available in a mobile-responsive format that gives your users the flexibility to take training anytime, anywhere, on any type of connected device. Our modules conform to the U.S. Section 508 standard and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA standard, which ensures that all available mobile-responsive modules can be accessed and completed by end users with disabilities.

Seamless Integration

Though our training modules can be used alone and serve as the centerpiece of your security awareness and training program, we recommend integrating your educational activities with our assessment and reinforcement tools. The modules are SCORM compliant for seamless integration into an existing learning management system (LMS), while both our CyberStrength and ThreatSim products support Auto-Enrollment. This automatically links assessments and follow-up education, and our Education Materials reinforce the key messages and best practices delivered in our modules.

Awareness Video Campaigns: Key Benefits and Features

Customizable Content

Awareness Video Campaign materials are accessible via our Security Awareness Materials portal and can be downloaded for your local use at any time during the length of your license. Once you obtain the files, you can add custom wrapper content to the beginning and end of each video (the video content itself is non-customizable). Companion posters and images — which use design elements and key messages from the videos — can be used to create signs, giveaways, screensavers, and other visual elements to further enhance your awareness initiatives and keep the conversation going. Incorporate logos and other company-specific information on the companion posters and use the images to create campaign elements that will resonate within your organization.

Multinational Support

The awareness videos and their corresponding posters are available in more than 25 languages. Once licensed, your organization can designate multiple administrators who can access the portal and download files from their global locations, eliminating the need for a single administrator to distribute all translations internally. Simply select the preferred language from a dropdown menu in our Security Awareness Materials portal prior to downloading.
