Mini-Modules Promote a Culture of Awareness
We can provide a number of short, to-the-point modules that you can release throughout the year to continuously promote a security minded culture. The modules focus on one topic each so your employees can be focused on, or reminded of, one security topic at a time throughout the year, or you many choose to spread out the modules over a different length of time. We will work with you to find the best schedule for your specific environment.
Role-based Courses for any Role of your Choice
We understand each organization has various roles that need to be targeted, and we can create a targeted course for any role of your choice.
In addition to our general awareness courses, we customize role-based courses to fit clients’ unique requirements for specific job roles. Some of the roles you may want specific training for include the following:
Refesher Course for Annual Awareness
Our refresher course is a great supplement to the general security awareness course. It is a 20 minute version of the (45 minute) standard course. This streamlined version is great as a stand-alone course or as a refresher for those who have already taken the standard version.
There are many different ways you can implement the refresher course in your overall solution. One implementation plan could be to initially roll out with the standard course, then annually your employees could take the 20 minute version as a refresher. Some choose to provide the refresher course initially, then take their learners into a more detailed course with the longer version. We work with our customers to choose the right plan for their unique requirements.
