April New Security Awareness Content

We have been busy adding more content to our Security Awareness Training. Here is a collection of what's new in March. 

 

Real Life Stories

 

"That’s when it hit me - I'm getting hacked! This could only happen if the scammers had my phone! I was freaking out! I didn’t have service so I used my husband’s phone to call our cell provider. After I told them what was going on, they said: 'Sorry ma’am, but you just requested that we activate your SIM Card from somewhere else. You even sent us your photo ID. We can’t help something that you just did!' But here’s the thing, I didn’t."

 

Compliance Training Videos

 

In this 3-part compliance training series, we discuss what is Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), how to understand your unconscious bias as it pertains to workplace behavior, and ways to respond to offensive behavior whether you feel offended or feel like you may have offended.

Many people will assume that Steve is a librarian, however, there are way more salespeople than librarians - so statistically speaking, Steve is more likely to be a salesperson. This is called the “base rate” bias, and it’s when people ignore the bigger picture (base rate) and only focus on specific information.
