Although phishing represents the biggest threat to online security, Cofense knows there’s no shortage of other cyber threats. That’s why we’ve created a broader program of online security awareness training. In myriad ways, it helps employees and other Internet users better protect themselves, their devices and the company from online theft and fraud.
Specifically, we’ve built a series of SCORM-compliant online security awareness training modules to complement businesses´ existing training programs. These modules are free to download and use whether you’re a Cofense customer or not.
What’s in the Online Security Awareness Training Modules?
We’ve made our online security awareness training modules as comprehensive as possible. In addition to covering subjects such as keeping passwords secure and practicing safe web surfing, our modules cover the physical security of devices and protecting data outside the office. All IT administrators are advised to review the module about Insider Threats.
We know that engaging, interactive models make for better learning. Each module contains concise lessons with interactive play and learning activities to help absorb and retain content. Most of our online security awareness training is available in multiple languages for businesses with a multi-national workforce.
Free Compliance Training Modules Are Available
In many industries, online security awareness training goes hand in hand with privacy and data security compliance. In Europe and elsewhere, there are stricter regulations vs. the U.S. on protecting personal data, implementing security measures, and taking steps to report a breach. Businesses operating in regulated industries may wish to review these free modules in particular:
- Health Care Compliance.
- Payment Data Compliance.
- Personal Data Compliance.
Like our online security awareness training modules, you can download and run our compliance training modules through a Learning Management System (LMS). For businesses that do not have an LMS system, these modules are also available as interactive PDF files. If you choose to download the PDF files, please note that Cofense refreshes the content regularly to mirror developments in online security and regulatory compliance.
