Have you given thought to why presentations, videos, and simple slides aren’t terribly effective tools when it comes to knowledge retention? We certainly have. And we believe that while these formats are appropriate methods for informing users, they aren’t engaging enough to truly educate users.
Now consider the industry research that has shown that once-a-year classroom and video training is not effective in the battle against cyber-attacks. Put these two elements together, and you’ll start to get a sense of why our Continuous Training Methodology is based on a cyclical approach that both informs users about best practices and teaches users how to employ these practices when they face security threats. Some of our customers have seen a marked reduction in susceptibility in as few as two months, and our continuous training approach allows you to capitalize and build on this initial rise in awareness, effectively changing behaviors over time.
