To get you started quickly, we created an annual training calendar for you. We have laid out the entire year, from January to December, with specific training topics and videos that will motivate your team to become security masters at work and home. This calendar also includes when to play games and when to run phishing simulations. If you need to comply with SOC2, CMMC it's better to start with the Boost version of the Annual Training 2022.



Schedule - FIRST MONTH

If you are using the the Free Version of Wizer then begin with the BASIC Annual Training 2022. It covers all the basics including: 

  • Phishing, Spear Phishing and Social Engineering
  • Multi Factor Authentication
  • Strong Password 
  • Ransomware

If you are using the Wizer Boost (The paid version) begin with the COMPLETE Annual Training 2022. It covers all the BASICS plus:

Schedule - EVERY MONTH

Once the basics are covered, activate the monthly “Hot Topic” video. These real life stories usually go beyond the workplace and are good for the entire family. It's something that people can take home and share with their families. It will keep them engaged throughout the year and help build a security culture.

Schedule - second MONTH

For the second month, launch the phishing game. It's an exercise that will allow your team to work on their phish spotting skills. 


Schedule - every 3 MONTHs

Once a quarter, add in focused training, like Smishing, Work From Home, or other specialized training. These training campaigns are usually short - no more than 5 videos (1-minute each).


Schedule - every 2-3 MONTHs

Finally, test your team by running a phishing simulation 3 to 6 times per year, you will find out if they can spot and report real-life phishing emails.

I founded Wizer in early 2019 with a mission to make basic security awareness training free for everyone. Since then Wizer has been rapidly growing with over 3000 organization who signed up for our free training. And in 2020 we partnered with several local counties to offer free Citizen Training. We believe that in this day an age, security awareness should be a basic human skill.
