Each month introduces a different topic and includes eLearning videos, Quickreads, podcasts and handouts so learners can choose their preferred learning style. Each module also contains a brief knowledge check assessment to allow your organization to validate learning and track compliance.

We begin by working with the program stakeholder to determine program completion requirements, communications preferences and reporting settings. Then we take a programmatic approach to implement proven strategies that ensure successful adoption of the program. Throughout the year, you can utilize posters and Outlook templates prepared by Alterity, and a new Security Zone announcement is added to the Learner Dashboard each month. You’ll receive completion metrics and reports to ensure compliance, and we’ll help you reinforce the importance of your cybersecurity awareness training program.

Strategic Planning Sessions

To be successful, cyber security training must create and sustain heightened awareness over time. Successful programs are those positioned as strategic to the success of the organization and sponsored by a broad coalition of executive stakeholders. Alterity consultants facilitate strategic planning sessions with organization leaders to champion an effective and sustainable program. Executives in information security, general counsel, management, IT, office administration, business development and human resources ensures all areas of the organization are engaged in cyber security. 

Employee Awareness Sessions

Increase the ways in which your employees receive important security information by adding annual or semi-annual Employee Awareness Sessions (EAS) to your program. During these informative and entertaining 1-hour sessions, consultants share real-world anecdotes and best practices gleaned from working with hundreds of organizations. It is common for participants to consider our EAS among the best meetings they attend all year. For those interested, Continuing Professional Development and Continuing Legal Education credit may be available as well.

Phishing Scams

A popular way for companies and employees to be targeted by attackers is with phishing attacks. Often, these scams mimic real world requests to capture sensitive information, directions to update passwords or payment via gift cards. If your organization wants to incorporate internal phishing emails to test how your employees react, Alterity can help!
