ERMProtect Offers Free Security Awareness Training to Combat Hackers Taking Advantage of the Coronavirus Crisis

Sponsored by Businesswire

ERMProtect, a leading cybersecurity solutions company, today announced it will provide free access to its proprietary Security Awareness Training to help the public combat hackers taking advantage of the coronavirus crisis.

Organizations can access two animated training modules that teach employees to spot phishing attacks and work safely online from home – a particularly relevant module as employees shift to working remotely.

ERMProtect unlocked two modules from its 100+ training library in response to government warnings that cyber actors are leveraging the coronavirus scare by launching phishing attacks, including phony government agency emails.

The ERMProtect training modules use animation to demonstrate that employees who work carelessly online can expose a company’s sensitive and confidential data, compromising customers and clients. A narrator provides specific tips to avoid getting tricked. The training ends with a quiz that reinforces learning.

The two released modules are “Phishing” and “Working from Home,’’ with content developed by the 23-year-old company’s veteran cybersecurity experts.

“This release fits our mission of protecting and educating public,’’ said Silka Gonzalez, President and Founder of ERMProtect. “It’s important to remember that people – more than technology – impacts IT security, which is why Security Awareness Training is so important.’’

The modules are available on the company’s You Tube channel or at this link. SCORM packages that can be loaded onto an organization’s LMS are also available upon request.
