Employee Security Index

With our ESI®, awareness becomes measurable.

Phishing click-through rates can be misleading because they measure how well done a phishing email is rather than how high your employees' security awareness is. That's why we've added the ESI® has developed a security awareness metric that makes your employees' IT security awareness measurable. Thanks to its scientific basis and high level of standardization, it makes it possible to compare not only groups of employees with each other, but also companies in the same industry. Through measurements over a period of time can also clearly determine the awareness development of employees and thus the success of awareness measures. In the Awareness Academy set your intended targetESI® fix and we will take care that your employees reach it. 

The ESI® is the first and only IT security indicator, that made it into our company KPIs!“, according to a customer from the energy industry


Awareness training on or off: The engine decides independently when training is required.

IT-Seal awareness technologies

Effective awareness training. Fully automated.

With our innovative awareness technologies, we offer you effective and sustainable training that raises your employees' awareness of IT security in the long term.

The IT-Seal Awareness Engine forms the technological core of the awareness training. It regularly evaluates the IT security behavior of the participants and decides on autopilot which group will receive further training measures and which group will pause due to the target security level already achieved.  Each participant thus receives exactly as much training as necessary, but at the same time as little as possible.

Our patented Spear-Phishing-Engine evaluates publicly available information (Open Source Intelligence, OSINT for short) of your employees, which on the one hand serves an attack potential analysis of your company. On the other hand, the Spear-Phishing-Engine can create and send targeted spear phishing emails fully automatically.

E-Learning IT-Seal


Increasing levels of difficulty to challenge individually and varied.

In awareness training, it is important to respond to participants individually, challenge them and keep them having fun. Our phishing simulation starts with simple scenarios and, if the employee successfully fends them off, progresses to increasingly elaborate and sophisticated spear phishing emails that are more difficult to detect. This helps us avoid security fatigue, so-called security fatigue. Employees thus get just the right level of difficulty between boredom and overwhelm to stay motivated in the long run.

Our managing director and social engineering expert David Kelm receives an award for a security awareness concept together with Alex Wyllie.
