Security awareness training and human risk management company AwareGO announced that training and assessment solutions now integrate with Microsoft (MS) Teams, helping organizations suffering from email fatigue to increase employee engagement.
“Delivering our cybersecurity solution quickly and with ease is essential in helping our clients create a strong security culture and increase engagement in security campaigns. Delivering our training through Microsoft Teams and Slack is one of the ways to do just that,” said Lee Roy Tipton, CTO of AwareGO. “This is why we designed our platform with integrations in mind.”
Short Cybersecurity Lessons are Ramping Up Worldwide
Recently, experts have raised concerns about the possibility of increased cyber-attacks and companies have ramped up their security awareness training programs. But like with any other learning process, organizations start suffering from cybersecurity training fatigue and poor employee engagement.
AwareGO’s one to two-minute real-life training videos are easy to digest, helping increase knowledge and retention. One of the most common mistakes CISOs make is to set too long and too frequent training sessions. When people need to dedicate 10, 20 or 30 minutes to complete the training, they usually procrastinate.
But when employees notice a short video in their Teams or Slack channel, they tend to watch the video immediately even if that means they’re doing it on the go, while making coffee or in-between video conference meetings. CISOs who decide to sprinkle training videos at different times and days in the week tend to get better engagement from employees.
Deliver Training to People in the Platform They Use to Avoid Cybersecurity Fatigue
In recent years, especially with the rise of remote work and with Millennials and Generation Z entering the workforce, business messaging apps have been used by enterprises more so than email. With AwareGO’s MS Teams and Slack integrations, organizations can deliver bite-sized microlearning campaigns directly to employees. Each lesson is delivered where everything happens and is designed to work seamlessly on both desktop and mobile.
Why Now and Why AwareGO
Given the entire geopolitical situation in Europe, employees are aware of imminent and increased cyber-attacks. Therefore, they are more open to receiving training.
Additionally announced last week, AwareGO has released a free 30-minute cybersecurity training course for up to 500 employees per company worldwide. Valued at up to $5,000 per organization, this quick and intensive cybersecurity training will be available until March 31 and is designed to help organizations and their employees identify and prevent potential cyber-attacks.
The free training program contains 14 hand-picked, relevant, one-minute micro-learning videos, as well as supplementary reading materials that focus on the most common methods that hackers use to trick people and gain access.
