Kaspersky Security Awareness

More than 80% of all cyber-incidents are caused by human error. Enterprises lose millions recovering from staff-related incidents – but traditional training programs usually fail to achieve the desired behavioral changes and motivation. Understanding what lies behind any learning and teaching process helps to build an effective educational program. Our programs not only deliver knowledge, but – more importantly – change habits and form the new behavior patterns that are the real goal of awareness training.

  • Setting objectives

    Goal-setting based on global benchmarking against world/ industry averages

  • Learning management

    Automated learning management with a comprehensive curriculum of cybersecurity competences, delivered in a variety of content formats

  • Reporting and analytics

    Live tracking of data, trends and forecasts and on-the-fly analysis of the potential for improvement where needed

  • Program appreciation

    True gamification based on relevant everyday participant experiences, offering competition and challenge and preventing overload

These training programs are particularly well suited to addressing the security requirements, concerns and constraints of these enterprise sectors.

Kaspersky Lab has launched a family of computer-based training products that utilize the latest learning techniques and address all levels of the organizational structure. Our integral approach consists of modern learning techniques ensuring all employees are trained up to the optimal level required. Gamification, learning-by-doing and repeated reinforcement all help to ensure strong skills retention. Each engaging training exercise highlights the direct relevance of cybersecurity to the individual. The employee's workplace environment and behavior are emulated, relating directly to users’ practical interests, increasing the motivation to learn and guaranteeing that skills learned will be applied.
