Kaspersky Lab wants to better educate employees about security and the risk they pose to a company if they don’t have the basic knowledge to keep data safe. To that end, it has now launched a training platform called Kaspersky Automated Security Awareness Platform.
The new Kaspersky Automated Security Awareness Platform addresses two key challenges, IT Pro. First of all, the platform monitors the risk of the employees. Meanwhile, it also provides a platform for employees to learn about the latest vulnerabilities and issues their organization may encounter.
Kaspersky’s web-based learning system offers the latest insights, as well as micro-training. This should enable employees to be trained in all aspects of cyber security. In addition, employees of all levels can participate, from beginners to advanced levels.
All sessions last between two and ten minutes and aim to teach employees 350 skills or to strengthen these skills. It does not matter at what stage they are in the security spectrum. The platform also uses gamification features to keep employees interested. In addition, incidents are related to real life, making the information easier to absorb.
“Our goal was to create an easy-to-manage, web-based tool that helps companies balance security competence levels across different groups of employees,” said Slava Borilin, security education program manager at Kaspersky Lab.
“Through a micro-learning approach and automated learning paths we hope to ensure employees are more interested, as well as the easy acquisition of skills and avoid destruction. This approach is particularly relevant for small businesses, which do not have experienced employees or resources to manage an efficient security awareness program.”
The platform is available to companies as a monthly subscription, making it more affordable than intensive security training. The platform can also be adapted to suit a company’s training schedule.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
