Awareness training videos are automatically sent via email to employees every month. This makes it easy for your employees to access the videos and increase their cybersecurity awareness without having to search for materials to learn from. At the end of each month a detailed report is sent out to administrators that includes information on which employees completed the training and passed the knowledge assessment quiz.

Why are awareness training videos important?
