Adaptive training platform levels up corporate security posture

Issue 2 2022 Training & Education

CybeReady, provider of an adaptive cybersecurity training platform, today unveiled major enhancements to its Adaptive Training Platform. The new capabilities increase the scope of impact on remote work environments and ensure consistent security training for new employees.

Remote work environments have expanded globally as the longstanding pandemic gained a foothold in countries around the world. For this reason, a large number of employees were required to work from home, exposing an enormous volume of endpoints to new threat actors unleashing a flood of phishing and other attacks. This, along with the increase in cyberattacks that began in March of 2020 has caused organisations to struggle with the security of their newly distributed IT environments.

“Cybercriminals have become experts at social engineering, using increasingly sophisticated techniques to trick employees into clicking on malicious links. It’s up to security leaders to provide employees with the information and knowledge to better defend against these attacks,” reported Gartner in recent research. “Remote work has only increased the risks as employees use more home networks and personal devices and make their own snap decisions about potential threats.”

Helping organisations to counter this new world of remote workforces, CybeReady is unveiling enhancements in its SaaS solution capabilities, designed to help train employees in on-premises and remote work environments. While the new and fully automated platform ensures cybersecurity training is compelling for employees, it also adapts the training per changing risk levels. This training regimen generates a change in employee behaviour and builds a strong security culture, preparing employees for any scenario.

Managed training platform

CybeReady offers a fully managed security training platform that includes phishing simulations, security awareness and compliance training capabilities, with built-in expertise already embedded into the training. The platform continuously trains enterprise employees to avoid cyberattacks, in 38 languages across 66 countries worldwide. The CybeReady platform operates 365 days a year, creating a continuous security culture through frequent (at least monthly) engagements with each employee, levelling up the security awareness practice to that of other security solutions products operating year-round. With security teams often overloaded today with a nearly insurmountable number of tasks, the CybeReady platform is fully managed and provides everything needed to run right out of the box.

In response to today’s changes in the threat landscape, CybeReady’s adaptive Phishing Simulations and Awareness platform feature new capabilities:

• Risk-based training. Adapts training programmes to different cohorts based on their performance, automatically. The adaptive programme's capability boosts the security posture of new employees, eliminating high-risk behaviours while augmenting new skills so they’re on par with the rest of the organisation.

• Continuous awareness bites. Short, ongoing bite-sized security awareness content modules using positive language, based on a non-intrusive opt-in model to improve employee engagement. Whether working from home or from a mobile device, the training can be completed in up to 90 s, to address the shift in working habits.

• Guaranteed language support. 100% language support for all content. The platform will run automatically in any language and locale per each employee location. The contextualised solution encompasses the full body of on-premises and remote workers for globally distributed organisations.

"CybeReady was instrumental in the improvements I've led in Teva's security posture, to ensure our company is well equipped to deal with changes in the threat landscape," said Ilan Abadi, Global CISO at Teva Pharmaceutical. "With 42 000 employees in 60 locations globally, CybeReady's adaptive approach allowed us to quickly identify and mitigate weaknesses created from the transition to remote work.”

“Just like we wouldn’t operate a firewall to run just once a year, we can't operate a training programme only once a year if we want to change security behaviour,” said Omer Taran, co-founder and CTO for CybeReady. “Our training platform was designed with modern employees and busy security teams in mind. It engages employees continuously and is focused on what matters to them. We welcome more organisations to benefit from our new capabilities and see real security impact without burdening their IT teams.”
