ERMProtect Adds Digital Games to Cyber Security Awareness Training Platform

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ERMProtect, a leading cybersecurity firm, announced today that the
company has developed 20 digital games for its Cyber Security Awareness
Training platform, strengthening the company’s already robust library of
100+ modules that teach employees how to work safely online.

Players learn cyber security awareness tips while testing their
knowledge against other learners. Players are challenged by several game
scenarios, including ones that require them to match objects, answer
trivia questions and jump between platforms to score points.

The new offering gives organizations yet another pathway to teach
employees how to avoid hacker lures. ERMProtect’s diverse e-learning
curriculum now includes whiteboard videos, cyber dictionaries,
bite-sized lectures and the games.

“Our ‘never-boring’ training helps users stay engaged, learn quickly and
retain knowledge essential to protecting their organization’s
information security assets,’’ said ERMProtect President Silka Gonzalez.
“They are far less likely to click on a malicious email, website or link
after taking our training.’’

It is well-known that hackers try to exploit human behavior by enticing
employees with phony emails, text messages, website offers and more.
Some of the biggest data breaches in history occurred because just one
employee accidentally exposed an organization’s sensitive data, causing
reputational, legal and regulatory damage for prominent brands.

“Cybersecurity awareness training is a critical piece of an
organization’s information security defenses,’’ Gonzalez said. “All the
technical defenses in the world won’t help if just one employee clicks
on a damaging link.’’

ERMProtect’s content is available on the company’s intuitive,
easy-to-use e-learning platform. The platform measures the level of
security awareness training in an organization on Day 1, then tracks
individual progress over time to ensure comprehension and demonstrate
ROI. The training, written by security experts in the field fighting
known and emerging threats, is continuously updated. Modules typically
last no more than five minutes, so users stay engaged and can get back
to work.

All content is available in English and Spanish. Clients with their own
learning management systems can license the content. Sample course
topics include new employee training, email security, password security,
social media security, smartphone security, social engineering,
ransomware, vishing, IoT, clean desk and insider threat. Topics also
include regulatory compliance such as NIST, GLBA, HIPAA, PCI, PHI and
