Cybersecurity Training Overview

Managing your security training program

Enrolling your team in Security Training

Enrolling your team members in Cyber Safety Security Training is simple. Navigate to the Security Training module. Then enter the names and email addresses of all trainees you wish to enroll. You can also use the bulk enroll option, where you can put this info into a spreadsheet and send it along to the Cyber Safety customer support team. 

Accessing the training program (by your team members)

Once enrolled, your trainees will receive a welcome email letting them know what to expect. Within a week they will start receiving training assignments with unique links to their online training course.

Your team will be accessing their training through the links sent to them in their emails. Each link is unique to the specific individuals and clicking on the link will take them directly into their individual training course. No login is required. 

Keep track of your team's progress

As your team progress through the training program, the Security Training dashboard will be updated weekly to show your team's progress.

The trainee list view shows the average grade for each of your team member along with an average grade for your entire team.

You can click on each team member to see the individual grade for each of their course topic. Inside, you may see 3 types of status for each box:

  1. A letter grade (A, B, C, F) - indicates the trainee has completed that topic and that is the grade that they have received
  2. Not Completed - indicates that a course topic has been assigned but the trainee has not yet completed it.
  3. Blank - indicates that the course topic has not yet been assigned. 


Course Details & Training Frequency

Security Training starts with a skills assessment designed to identify your team's strengths and weaknesses when it comes to cybersecurity. Identifying weaknesses allows us to prioritize training that your users need most and deliver a tailored training plan for each user.

Note that all users will eventually receive the same training, just in a different order based on their knowledge.

Trainees will receive a monthly email with a new course assignment, as well as weekly reminder emails for outstanding courses. Users will only receive the weekly reminder email if they have courses outstanding that were assigned over 7 days ago.

Each of the twelve courses (details below) includes a knowledge comprehension quiz. The passing rate is 70%, and most users need between 15-20 minutes to complete each course and associated quiz.
