Awareness ACADEMY

A simple and effective workflow for increasing the awareness of your employees: The IT-Seal Awareness Academy.

9 out of 10 cyber attacks start with a phishing email and therefore also with a tricked employee. As an IT security officer you are faced with the challenge of minimizing the "human" security risk . With the IT-Seal Awareness Academy, you can easily and, above all, permanently tick off the topic off security awareness. You define the desired security level via the Employee Security Index (ESI®) and we take care of the rest.

The continuous training program includes a variety of methods to effectively reach unsensitized employees: From phishing simulations, e-learnings, short videos, online seminars and awareness materials to tips for the workplace. The result of the Awareness Academy is enlightened employees who know and accept their responsibility for the security of the company.

4 steps to become a secure employee:

  • Step 1:
    Choose solution
  • Step 2:
    Internal announcement
  • Step 3:
    Upload participants
  • Step 4:
    Lean back and observe the increasing ESI®

The Awareness Academy is available in four different versions: Lite, Basic, Professional and Premium. With the "Lite" package, you not only get to know us, but also your security level either within four weeks or permanently. In addition to the spear phishing simulation with explanation page, components of Lite also include the determination of the ESI® and a detailed final report with individual recommendations for action. The goal of Lite is always to measure the security awareness in your company.

The Basic to Premium service work according to the principle of goal-ESI®: You determine the security level and we take care of the continuous training and sensitization of your employees, while you can lean back and relax. Groups of employees who are below the goal- ESI® receive various awareness training courses - from e-learning and awareness materials to training sessions and short videos. There is break during the training, however, for those groups that are above the goal-ESI®. In this way, only those employees who actually need training receive it.

All services are subject to monthly cancellation. However, we recommend the continuous participation of your employees in the Awareness Academy to keep the IT security awareness at a constant level.

Employees, managers, data privacy officers and works and staff councils are just a few of the key stakeholders that need to be picked up when conducting an awareness campaign. You can avoid frustration and critical concerns by making an informative announcement in advance of the planned measures.

Our awareness experts will guide you through this process and provide you with the necessary materials and templates. If you would like to meet the stakeholders in a meeting, our experts will also be happy to attend in person to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

In order to prevent conclusions from being drawn about individual employees and to be able to act in accordance with data privacy regulations, you can group employees into any number of groups of 30 or more. Here it makes sense to pick up the departmental and company structures and represent them in appropriate groups.

Then upload the participant lists in a common format in our dashboard. Of course we provide you with easy to use templates for this purpose.

Congratulations! Your employees are participants of the Awareness Academy and will be trained by us in full service according to your needs using a wide variety of methods. You can look forward to enlightened employees who know and accept their responsibility for the security of the company. The dashboard in the Awareness Manager provides you with detailed information about the current security level of each employee group. Your colleagues regularly talk about their experiences with the phishing simulation and the learning content in the company canteen and exchange information: IT security has finally arrived in the minds of your employees!

Permanent training in four versions

Security awareness is a continuous process – just like our awareness solutions which can be terminated monthly.

Features Lite Basic Professional Premium
Spear phishing simulation with the "most teachable moment"Realistic phishing scenarios, which are adapted to the company and the participant automatically. They include both phishing links and file attachments, e.g. with macros. The "most teachable moment" is a website, that interactively explains the user's misconduct at the exact moment of "misbehavior". This makes the user particularly receptive to knowledge acquisition and explanation.
Goal-ESI®The goal-ESI® defines the desired security level of a group, which enables IT-Seal to take care of the training according to your needs. If a group reaches the goal, the training is paused and the ESI® is measured after 3 months again. If a group has difficulty reaching the goal, additional training is provided to specifically support the group.
Without goal-ESI®




Proposal system for new scenariosTell us your ideas for attack scenarios for your company or your industry. Our phishing experts will check all suggestions for feasibility and difficulty level. Based on the submitted suggestions and current real-world attacks, new phishing emails are implemented each month and automatically integrated into the training.
Fake login pagesCredentials phishing uses replicated login pages to access the data of your employees. During our phishing simulation, login data is never transmitted to our servers. (Standard: Microsoft Login, SAP Netweaver, Dropbox)
OSINT risk analysis & OSINT phishingOpen Source Intelligence (OSINT) is the collection of information from freely accessible sources. It forms the basis for advanced attacks. With our OSINT analysis we reproduce this step of real attackers and thus determine the attack potential by collecting publicly available information on the Internet. In addition to the evaluation of the attack potential, the obtained information can be used for OSINT phishing simulations which are especially well customized for the participant (currently only DE).
Phishing e-mails individually implemented for youWe create phishing templates designed according to your individual needs and requirements. This allows you to cover company-specific scenarios to obtain even more realistic simulations.

E-learningIT-Seal's elearning teaches participants basic IT security awareness in an entertaining, clear and understandable way. In the interactive training sessions, the focus is on subjects that can also be directly recognized and implemented by laymen in everyday life. The elearning is divided into several modules of 5-10 minutes each. The progress is stored so that each module can be worked on by the participant in one session or in several sessions.

Difficulty level of the phishing simulation is individually increasingReal attacks are diverse and use various technical and psychological tricks, some of which are very difficult to expose. Through our level-based approach, participants first receive simple attack simulations. Only those who are able to recognize these reliably are introduced to more complex scenarios. In this way, each participant receives a training level that is suited to his or her needs.
Short videosShort videos (60-90 seconds) with content on security awareness, phishing, malware, social engineering and more.
Outlook reporter-add-inThe IT-Seal Reporter Button simplifies the reporting process for real attacks and at the same time provides the user with positive feedback for correctly detected phishing simulations.
Awareness materialAt the start you will receive a package of awareness posters, depending on the number of participants. Later on, flyers on various topics such as "10 golden rules for IT security" and "password security" are available.
Online seminarsIn online seminars, participants with special training needs are taught the basics of secure behavior in the workplace by our awareness consultants.
Classroom trainingsIn classroom trainings, participants with special training needs are taught the basics of secure behavior in the workplace by our awareness consultants personally at your location. Participants can easily ask questions and take part in an intensive exchange.
Individual design adaptationsAdapting the e-learning and awareness materials to your corporate branding strengthens the image among employees and increases confidence in the content.

Security & Privacy by Design

to protect your employees.

The privacy 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.
