We’d been looking for some training for quite some time and initially I went to a company that provides schools with a lot of the trainings required but they didn’t have quite what we were looking for. We looked at a lot of other security awareness vendors with lots of them doing good things but what it really came down to was cost. The pricing was a no-brainer whereas some of the other competitors were a little bit pricier (however, I would say from an IT standpoint, it’s hard to put a price on cybersecurity training).
The Creative Solution
While the price was a big factor in our decision, I didn’t have any doubt once I saw the videos - I knew they were going to work for us because not only were they very to the point but for each topic they mention “your organization may do things differently so check with your IT staff” and that’s important for people to be reminded of.
The important thing with cybersecurity training - and what I love about Wizer’s product - is keeping it short and engaging. That’s huge. Especially since educators already have a lot on their plate along with a bunch of other training. So providing them training that doesn’t have to be all in one sitting where they can take a minute here, two minutes there, it’s really helpful.
In fact, one of our deans of students was really excited to be able to share some of the videos with his wife because he said that these are things that everybody should know.
Recommendation to Others
For anyone on the fence about Wizer, I would say we looked at several other products and I really did feel that Wizer had everything to offer, if not more than others.
The ease of use of the dashboard is wonderful as well as the ability to quickly see who’s completed the training and current status is very helpful. When I noticed there were people who still hadn’t even logged in it was so simple to select their names and send a reminder to start training. That’s really helpful.
Another feature I find great is the video of the month. That’s going to be a huge thing for us to have regular reminders about the training they already did and monthly tips to help them keep it top of mind.
