With a trusted reputation for delivering the highest quality, role-based security awareness education, the company added hundreds of new interactive training modules and realistic phishing templates to its extensive content library.

Rapidly Growing, Satisfied Client Base

With a mix of large enterprise and mid-market account wins across all industries, InfoSec Institute grew its customer count 161% in 2017.

Largest Interactive Security Awareness Education Library

The frequency and severity of phishing attacks and data breaches is fueling business demand for more sophisticated security awareness training. “With 30% of all employees unable to spot a phishing email, our job is to provide CISOs the behavioral insights to identify and educate their security-naive employees,” said Jack Koziol, InfoSec Institute founder and CEO. “Armed with this valuable information, they rely on SecurityIQ’s intelligence and automation to slash the time and effort it typically requires to build a security awareness program personalized to their learners’ unique security aptitudes, roles and learning styles. We’re thrilled to help our clients break the one-size-fits-all training mold and reap the benefits, with many dropping their phishing susceptibility rate to 1% or lower.”

SecurityIQ’s unmatched AwareEd™ educational library, which now exceeds 1,100 interactive training modules, phishing templates and education reinforcement materials, is the cornerstone to successful awareness campaigns worldwide. Over the past year, SecurityIQ’s library expanded with:

  • 70+ new training modules for financial services, healthcare, education, compliance, managers/executives and OWASP developers
  • Support for 21 languages
  • Hundreds of new current-threat phishing templates
  • Ready-to-use learner assessments plus 300+ pre-loaded questions for creating custom quizzes
