In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, the most valuable assets of any organization are not just the data stored in servers or the technology protecting them; it’s the people behind the screens. Recognizing this, AwareGO has introduced a groundbreaking smart feature to its Human Risk Assessment platform – Training Recommendations. This innovation marks a significant step towards transforming cybersecurity training and management from a guessing game into a data-driven approach, setting a new standard for the industry.

The Human Risk Assessment: A Holistic Approach to Cybersecurity

AwareGO’s Human Risk Assessment is a comprehensive solution designed to measure, detect, and manage human risk in cybersecurity. It provides organizations with an interactive space where employees can be evaluated in terms of their knowledge and behavior regarding cybersecurity threats. Unlike traditional assessments or simulations, this process occurs in a safe and positive environment, fostering a learning-oriented culture within the organization.

One of the key advantages of the Human Risk Assessment is its granular feedback and reporting. Participants receive detailed information about their assessment, including both correct and incorrect answers. This approach empowers employees to understand their strengths and weaknesses, helping them become more aware and proactive in cybersecurity matters. With the new training recommendations feature the results will help security admins to deliver the right training to the right people without guessing.

Empowering Security Admins with Granular Insights

To further enhance the utility of the Human Risk Assessment, AwareGO has empowered security administrators with the ability to categorize participants based on various parameters, such as geographical location, job titles, divisions, and more. This categorization allows organizations to obtain granular insights into the specific threat areas where employees may be lacking awareness or knowledge.

Once the assessments are complete, organizations can utilize these insights to identify precisely which groups within their workforce require targeted training in specific threat areas. This data-driven approach ensures that cybersecurity training efforts are not only effective but also efficient, saving valuable time and resources.

Training Recommendations to Bridge the Gap

The new Training Recommendations feature acts as a bridge between the Human Risk Assessment and the award-winning AwareGO training content. After an assessment is completed, this feature automatically generates and recommends a training program based on the assessment results.

The beauty of the Training Recommendations feature lies in its ability to pinpoint the exact threat areas where a group scored lowest, thereby customizing training plans for that particular group. This personalized approach ensures that training efforts are directly aligned with the organization’s unique risk profile, making cybersecurity education more impactful and relevant.

Transforming Cybersecurity and Human Risk Management

With the introduction of Training Recommendations, we are taking a giant leap towards revolutionizing cybersecurity management. No longer do organizations need to rely on generic, one-size-fits-all training programs. Instead, they can harness the power of data to tailor their training initiatives precisely to the areas where it matters most.

Furthermore, this data-driven approach brings a new level of transparency to cybersecurity management. Security administrators and training professionals can now confidently prioritize resources, track progress, and demonstrate the tangible impact of their efforts to key stakeholders.

A Marriage of Science and Best Practices

AwareGO’s Human Risk Assessment, enriched by the Training Recommendations feature, is rooted in both human behavioral science and cybersecurity best practices. By merging these two disciplines, organizations can effectively mitigate the human element of cybersecurity risk, which is often the weakest link in the chain.

AwareGO’s Training Recommendation feature is a game-changer in the field of cybersecurity. It empowers organizations to transform their cybersecurity training and management from a guessing game into a precise, data-driven science. With this innovative approach, cybersecurity becomes not just a technology issue but a people-centric strategy that safeguards an organization’s most critical assets.
