Cyber Security Awareness Training
A Canadian, high tech digital imaging company that was in a rapid growth phase required a cyber security awareness training program that would ensure that all 430 worldwide employees were taking precautionary measures, while using the corporation’s computers, devices, and network infrastructure.
One of the concerns was the rapid growth of the company and the dozens of new employees that were being on-boarded monthly, who had no formal security training provided to them. Several of their global offices, had no one responsible for ensuring that security was being kept front of mind. The lack of security training was concerning as many of the employees had access to extremely sensitive corporate information.
This was a problem that needed a solution.

430 employees, in 6 countries.
While the company had secured network infrastructure located in the cloud and in secured data centers in several countries around the world, they lacked a formal security training program that would help mitigate, theft of data, a security breach, or a ransomware attack committed on an employee.
There was also no preexisting platform for global internal communications which made disseminating internal communication to all global employees a particular challenge. This also meant that providing any formal security training to all new and existing employees would be difficult.
SecuSolutions was engaged to develop a training program, that would address the companies concerns about employee, cyber security awareness training. They required a platform, that would provide their global employees with a unified message from the corporate head office enforcing the importance of the training program. They also needed to be sure that all employees were receiving the same training on the numerous security topics that were made available as part of the Information Security Awareness Master Program.
They were very concerned that all employees must take the training and requested a solution to verify this. Lastly, they required customization of a few of our existing lessons to include specific instruction as it related to the company’s proprietary technology.
One of the additional conditions the company had was that the training should be made accessible, using 2FA (2 factor authentication).
