The Security Dilemma

Seventy-nine percent of information security officers think human error is the root cause of information security failures according to a 2007 Deloitte & Touche survey. Security awareness training was one of the top-three information security incentives for 2007.

The problem is that current training methods are not effective; the training doesn’t stick.

Busy schedules, information overload, and long gaps between training make it difficult for employees to learn the security information they need. And even when they do, over time, the impact of training fades.

The Security Mentor Difference

Security Mentor’s innovative approach provides the solution: brief, frequent and focused online sescurity awareness training. Security Mentor training is designed for how people learn and function in today’s working environment.

Learning is most successful when attention is focused on small bites of targeted information that are reinforced over time. This is especially true in today’s workplace. The adult attention span is 12 to 15 minutes. On average, employees get interrupted every 11 minutes and switch to a new task every 3 minutes. Today’s learning must fit this business reality.

Security Mentor’s engaging, interactive, rich media lessons are created in Flash and instructionally designed to increase retention by creating memorable experiences through the use of real-world-situations, stories, problem-solving, and serious games. Lesson content is relevant to the workplace and developed by CISA-and CISSP-certified information security professionals.

Web-based training can be accessed when and where it is most convenient for employees and employers, increasing participation and reducing cost.
