RALEIGH, N.C. – March 8, 2017 – More than half of all significant data breaches are caused by user error or tactics that target end-users, such as phishing or social engineering. Yet many organizations struggle to deliver and enforce employee training around security best practices, including how to identify fraudulent emails, password security, or social media and mobile device security.

To assist customers in equipping their employees with the knowledge to prevent intrusion and user-error, Alphanumeric has launched a specialized suite of online, video-based micro-learning modules highlighting key concepts for end-user cyber security.

“Using engaging multimedia courses and a powerful content delivery platform, we can now offer our customers a cost-effective and easy-to-manage solution for protecting their data assets from the most common vulnerabilities,” said TJ Coyle, Alphanumeric’s Chief Learning Officer. “Obviously, companies are investing a lot in their IT security infrastructure – as they should. This is one extra layer of defense in a rapidly evolving world.”

Because the training is fully cloud-based, updates are delivered automatically to the platform, keeping pace with threats as they evolve. Further, the delivery platform enables detailed management so employers can deploy training on a tailored schedule and ensure all employees complete the training as required.

“The platform is very flexible,” Coyle adds. “I have no doubt this solution will fit a need in every organization.”

More information about the End-User Cyber Security Training – and a free, 7-day, all-access trial of the platform – is available here.

The short, video-based modules cover an array of cyber-security topics. The video below offers a sample of actual course material.
