One year after our first award-winning Security Awareness training course this Financial Services organization was ready to roll-out a follow-up. The new material would include a partial revision to the original course in addition to a number of new topics. We were challenged with determining how to reconcile the new information with the previous course in an equally effective manner yet under tighter budget restrictions.

We quickly understood that “all was not lost” with the original course, nor was the award-winning design in need of a makeover. Our solution was to develop a companion, or part 2, piece to accompany the original. A new environment was created and key characters would return with new data security related tales. Recycling assets allowed us to keep development time low and costs down. We also added new design elements to the mix to keep the design fresh and unique from the original course and to further aid in development time.

The initial course served as the foundation for creation of an entire Security Awareness training program which now includes this and additional modules which build off the original while providing information about changing policies and new challenges to security. The client continues to experience significant, quantifiable (a 20% decrease in security incidents!) improvements. And having a successful online program means that the information can be distributed quickly and to all global employees simultaneously. This has greatly reduced the lag time between the introduction of new security challenges and the client solution and protocol for combating the challenge.
