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

9 out of 10 successful cyber attacks start with a phishing email and therefore also with a deceived employee. As a security manager, 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 put a checkmark on the topic of security awareness. You define the desired target 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.

Our Awareness Academy explained in 2 minutes.

"The ESI® is the first and only IT security metric to make it into our corporate KPIs!"
