Awareness Academy: awareness training with a system

Our offer // Awareness Academy

Detect phishing and social engineering attacks in daily work.

The Awareness Academy combines phishing simulation and e-learning to comprehensively prepare your employees for real cyber attacks. 

We continuously and sustainably train your employees in their everyday work. Over a period of 6 months we send 2-3 individual phishing emails per month to each participant. In doing so, we rely on the "Teachable Moment". If an employee opens risky content, he or she is redirected to the IT-Seal explanation page. There, the example of the e-mail just opened is used to explain how you could have exposed it as a phishing attack. The level of difficulty increases at your own pace.

How much information do your employees and your company disclose on the Internet? IT-Seal answers this question with its attack-potential-analysis. We use the information found to simulate spear phishing attacks and also provide you with a risk assessment.

In order to ensure that your employees are also provided with content that cannot be depicted in a phishing simulation, the Awareness Academy combines phishing simulations with interactive e-learning. All e-learning modules are available:

  • IT und I: Introduction
  • Social engineering
  • E-mail security (phishing)
  • Social media: risks and privacy settings
  • Passwords and authentication
  • Vishing
  • Information security in the home office

In contrast to the Awareness Assessment the Awareness Academy helps you to train your employees comprehensively with a versatile and innovative awareness training.

Proof for ISO 27001

All employees who complete our Awareness Academy receive a personal certificate for their participation, which serves as proof in the course of ISO 27001.

IT-Seal has developed the "Employee Security Index" (ESI®) as a benchmark for social engineering and phishing awareness. Based on the current state of research and our experience with phishing simulations in companies in a wide range of industries, we have derived tolerance values for the behaviour of employees towards social engineering attacks.

GDPR compliant

to protect your employees.

The protection of employees is important to us, which is why the results are always evaluated on a group basis. By department, hierarchy or region - you decide which groups you want to compare. We investigate how vulnerable individual employee groups are to phishing attacks and thus make it possible to plan further measures.
