This course will help you create a more secure environment to protect yourself, your clients, and your organization from a breach.

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.
