Leapest Corporate Learning Marketplace, an EdCast company, continues to expand its content offerings with security awareness, anti-phishing, role-based security and compliance online learning programs (available in more than 10 languages) from award-winning provider, Global Learning Systems (GLS).

MSSP Alert placed GLS among the Top 10 Security Awareness Training Companies for 2019. Recognized for its innovative design and gamification training strategies, GLS recently won top accolades in three content categories of the InfoSec 2019 Awards from Cyber Defense Magazine for these products:  Secure Coding with the OWASP Top 10 – 2017 for developers, Human Firewall 2.0™  for security awareness and gamified compliance training.

GLS’ wide portfolio of learning and compliance programs will give Leapest customers access to:

  • GDPR and data privacy awareness courses that examine current laws, regulations, and directives, and explain how employees must treat personally identifiable information to keep the organization compliant.
  • A comprehensive security awareness training portfolio with courses for employees and leaders that inform, engage and promote a security-minded culture.
  • Anti-phishing training and simulation that uses an interactive, scenario-based approach to educate employees on social engineering threats. Gamification and achievement elements engage the user while building an understanding of how to handle phishing attacks.
  • Role-based training for IT and security professionals that specifically addresses their position in the organization and presents security concepts in that context.

Educated and informed employees are the first line of defense for safeguarding organizations from threats like malware, phishing and ransomware. Now, Leapest customers can deliver the kind of training that yields results and changes employee behaviors.

According to Marina Kelly, Technical Director, GLS, “We all respond best from a place of knowledge, not fear. Strong leadership in security awareness means providing employees with the skills and support they need to face their daily battles. By doing so, we can change their response to news of another breach from panic to confidence.”

“This partnership with GLS strengthens the offerings in our global Corporate Learning Marketplace and EdCast Learning Experience Platform (LXP) to respond to our customers’ interest in a training curriculum that addresses cybersecurity and data privacy enterprise-wide,” says Sukhbir Jasuja, CEO Leapest by EdCast.
