This ten-minute interactive e-learning course introduces phishing and ransomware to employees and explains what they need to be aware of to avoid falling victim to future incidents.
The course describes the link between phishing and ransomware, the consequences of falling victim to an attack, and how to respond should they suspect that they have been compromised.
This is a one-year, easily renewable licence. For maximum benefit, staff should retake the course and exam on a yearly basis to ensure retention of information, and therefore get the most value from the course. It’s hosted on our learning management system (LMS). Accessible from anywhere with an internet connection, you are able to add your own branding and contact information to improve the user interface for your staff. It also provides reportable statistics on users completion of courses and exam results, which are excellent evidence if you have an audit.
All staff that successfully complete the course will be issued with a certificate that displays their score. This can be kept on record for internal purposes or if necessary, suitable for audit.
This course was developed in light of the WannaCry ransomware exploit, which spread rapidly across networks and affected 200,000 organisations in 150 countries, including the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), Telefónica in Spain, and Nissan’s Sunderland plant.
Educating employees on phishing and ransomware can significantly reduce the risk of your organisation falling victim to an attack. Falling victim in the past should not be the only reason to train staff. Sharing knowledge of cyber attacks and other threats is valuable in any cyber security strategy.
E-learning is a quick, affordable and effective means of delivering training with minimal disruption.
This course is targeted at all employees who need to be aware of the risks of phishing and ransomware. It is especially suited for organisations in the critical service sectors, such as healthcare, education, finance and retail.
This course helps employees better understand phishing and ransomware and how they work together. They will also be equipped with the knowledge to help them to spot future attacks and how to respond if they think they have been compromised.
