MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ERMProtect, a leading cybersecurity firm, today launched new educational
games that show employees how to work safely online so they minimize the
risk of triggering an organizational data breach.
The new offerings expand the company’s expansive line up of animated
chalkboard videos, digital games, cyber dictionaries, phishing tests and
quizzes that train employees to recognize hacker lures, so they are less
likely to compromise sensitive data.
“Spot the Phish” shows employees emails, on-line advertisements,
sign-in links and other common Internet content. Employees must decide
if they are real or phony. They receive detailed feedback on why their
answers are right or wrong. The games teach employees to spot fake
government emails, malicious ad solicitations, business compromise
emails and dozens of other common scams targeted at them every day.

Gonzalez noted that some of the world’s biggest brands have suffered
historic data breaches because a single employee accidentally exposed an
organization’s sensitive data. “Some of these organizations had the most

address the human factor in cybersecurity by offering security awareness
training,” Gonzalez said.
ERMProtect’s full content library of 100+ modules is available on the
company’s intuitive, easy-to-use e-learning platform. The platform
measures the level of security awareness training in an organization on
Day 1, then tracks individual progress over time to ensure comprehension
and demonstrate ROI. The training, written by security experts in the
field fighting known and emerging threats, is continuously updated.
Modules typically last no more than five minutes, so users stay engaged
and can get back to work quickly.
All content is available in English and Spanish. Clients with their own
learning management systems can license the content. Sample course
topics include new employee training, email security, password security,
social media security, smartphone security, social engineering,
ransomware, vishing, IoT, clean desk and insider threat. Topics also
include regulatory compliance such as NIST, GLBA, HIPAA, PCI, PHI and
