Cyber training is most effective when delivered in short, micro-learning modules and users retain the information best when it is relevant to their individual circumstances and level of expertise. We may not need to teach IT professionals about password protection, just as the average staff member doesn’t need to know the technical specifications of the business’ firewall.

VinciWorks will soon be adding a new course to our cyber security training suite that takes personalisation to the next level. The course presents a brand new style of course that aims to provide the ultimate in relevant learning for the user. The course contains over 50 short individual units that dynamically organise themselves to create a relevant learning path as unique as each user.

The course focuses on the areas of cyber security that place businesses most at risk and takes an innovative, interactive approach to training.

Included module packs

Each module pack contains a number of short, direct lessons that can be mixed and matched depending on the individual circumstances of each user.

  • The basics of cyber security
  • Password management
  • Ransomware
  • Phishing
  • Social Engineering
  • Online reputation
  • Social media
  • Cyberbullying
  • Email@risk
  • Info classification

With over 90 minutes of content to choose from, users can spend time thinking through how scammers exploit oversharing on LinkedIn to setting up a LastPass account. Power users can also breeze through the basics and key lessons the business needs them to know in as little as fifteen minutes, focusing on things like creating a strong password, knowing how to spot ransomware and avoiding the pitfalls of sending the wrong email.

How does the course builder work?

Our builder allows admins to create the course most relevant to each user’s role and cyber security knowledge

Ensuring each staff member takes the cyber security course that is 100% relevant to each user is a challenge for compliance managers. Some employees, such as IT staff, may well have a better understanding of the topic while also requiring more in-depth training around other areas. Marketing staff, on the other hand, will need to become familiar with the cyber security risks surrounding online reputation and social media.

Our course builder allows administrators to choose exactly which aspects of cyber security compliance are covered in the course without having to review the entire text of the course and manually edit each word that isn’t appropriate for a particular user or group of users. Admins are presented with the full outline of the course and can choose which modules should be included, as well as which units within each module should be excluded from the course. They can request specific changes at any point in the course and can see exactly how the length of the course is affected by every change they implement.
