Our apologies if we sound a bit hot under the collar, but at KnowBe4 we are passionate about security. Perhaps other types of training can be drawn out and fragmented, but we are dealing with IT security here, and employees are the weak link! More and more, you see training companies promote their security awareness computer based training products as ‘modular’ as if that is something good. It’s not.
They break their training in small modules, split up by security topic, and say that this is better. It’s not.
They say that this is the way people learn and work. It’s definitely not.
They claim that short lessons are easy to learn. That is patent nonsense. Is a 10 minute lesson in astrophysics easy to learn?
They say that one lesson a month, each with a different security awareness topic, is the best approach. It’s actually an invitation to a data breach or a ransomware attack. Would you install a firewall and slowly, over time, block the ports you need to defend?
There is a massive problem with this approach: Security Training Fragmentation causes a Knowledge Gap
Based on Kevin’s 30+ year unique first-hand hacking experience, you now can train employees to better manage the urgent IT security problems of social engineering, spear phishing and ransomware attacks.
