Reinforcements for Security Awareness Programs

Keep your messaging fresh and in the forefront of your users’ minds with content that reinforces the lessons most important to your organization.

Reinforcement content is not scored nor usually tracked in a formal way, and information is conveyed through a variety of modalities to appeal to different types of users. You will find that when you employ reinforcements successfully, users will learn about twice as much as they would from more traditional, formal training.

This type of content includes monthly newsletters, Security Express and ISA videos, and Security One Sheets.

Monthly Newsletters

Our popular magazine-quality newsletter subscription offers you an easy and affordable way to keep your staff up-to-date on policies and best practices. By presenting important information in a non-technical, conversational tone that appeals to a wide variety of audiences, we make security awareness easy to understand (and fun to read!).

Consistency is vital to the success of any awareness program. Monthly newsletters are a proven way to reinforce and create this consistency!

Reminding users of important messages and policies each month in an approachable, fun manner will help you take strides towards establishing a strong culture of learning and security awareness within your organization, as well as leveraging more informal learning opportunities.

Newsletter Topics & Schedule

Each month, our content is written according to a list of topics we release before the beginning of each year.* This allows the magazine to remain current while focusing on all of the important issues.

We recommend planning your entire year’s security awareness program around these topics, providing microlearning opportunities (such as posters, games, or videos) along with the newsletter. We often cover the same topics every 12-18 months, addressing them from a different perspective or angle.

* Topics are subject to change based on important infosec issues and/or to stay relevant with up-to-date news.

Educational Videos

1-4 minute security “bytes” that cover a broad range of topics and include a wide variety of styles. These are great to use every month to keep security in the forefront of your employees’ minds.

Video reinforcements are an easy way to create informal learning opportunities for your employees. Short, focused, to-the-point, videos don’t require assessments and feel less like training and more like how your users already interact online.

Security Express Videos

Security Express videos make a great addition to any security awareness training program and will give your users lots of informal microlearning opportunities!

They are created in a broad variety of styles, from animated scenarios based on true stories to educational documentary style using stock footage. They all provide practical action items and lessons your users can apply both at work and at home.

Our current collection of 70+ Security Express videos are sold off-the-shelf separately or in packages of 4, 6, and 12, depending on your needs. These videos are delivered as HD MP4 files. (Let us know if you need them in another video format.)

Info Security Announcements (ISAs)

Video reinforcements are an easy way to create informal learning opportunities for your employees. Short, focused, to-the-point videos don’t require assessments. They feel less like training and more like how your users already interact online.

We’ve partnered with AwareGo to bring you this collection of short, entertaining, and educational videos, dubbed Information Security Announcements (think “PSA” – short and impactful)

S.O.S.: Security One Sheets

Security One Sheets can save your security awareness program from drowning!

The key to creating a successful information security awareness training program is to reinforce key messages as often as possible. To do this, you must catch your users’ attention and hold it. That’s where our versatile S.O.S. come in!

Security One Sheets are standalone pages, designed to be eye-catching enough to grab employees’ attention to create teachable moments outside formal learning. These are delivered as PDFs and can be used in a variety of creative ways. You can add these pages onto any other PDF (such as a newsletter or policy document), print them out to use as flyers in bathroom stalls or elevators, or combine them to create a customized magazine on a specific subject. It’s up to you!
