Employee awareness programs are not just about teaching employees what and what not to do. At their core, the goal should be to grow employee knowledge, change employee behavior, and ultimately build a risk-aware culture.
We’ve developed our Adaptive Awareness Framework to empower our clients to build awareness programs that do just that. Numerous clients have used this model to both build their first awareness initiatives and scale existing ones to address emerging threats, changing regulations, and shifting employee populations. The Framework is a flexible and self-correcting model that encourages companies to analyze their risks, build a plan for improvement, and offer targeted training and reinforcement.
A critical first step in building a risk-aware culture is knowing where you are and where you want to go. You need to assess and analyze your critical employee risks and identify behaviors that need to change to reduce these risks.
Need to know what your employees know and don’t know about common cybersecurity and privacy risks? Deploy our Behavioral Risk Assessment to your population to test their knowledge across eight common threat vectors. With our Phishing Simulator, you can run pre-built or build-your-own mock phishing campaigns on your employee population to see how susceptible they are to this common method of cyberattack.
A sound awareness program plan aligns your goals with the training, reinforcement, and ongoing analytics you’ll deploy to bring about behavior change. Such a plan builds off the data gathered in the analysis stage to target risks most pertinent to your organization.
Using our Adaptive Planning Tool, you identify behavioral risks and pinpoint the desired improvements you’ll make with your awareness program. The Planning Tool allows you to choose from a library of pre-built awareness plans based on your industry, desired maturity level, subject matter, or risk-based profile.
Training is the foundation of any good awareness program. To get training right, you’ve got to deliver engaging material to the right people, at the right time. With MediaPRO, you have access to training content that is entertaining, flexible, and capable of adapting to your ever-changing needs.
Across our awareness program package tiers, you have access to a variety of award-winning training content designed by adult learning experts. All training modules are interactive and feature real-life scenarios and examples, increasing retention and equipping your employees with the tools they need to keep your organization secure.
While training communicates the key principles of your program, it’s the way you reinforce your message that ensures your message sticks with your employees.
Strategic reinforcement through MediaPRO’s library of animations, posters, articles, and more ensure the best practices your employees need to know are embedded within your organizational culture. Our reinforcement content uses a variety of communication methods and is aligned to support the key behavioral risks you’re trying to mitigate.
