Security Mentor gamification badges and points for security awareness training and phishing

Gamification

Gamification incents and motivates users by rewarding training accomplishments, and encouraging friendly competition. Top benefits include increasing user engagement, improving absorption, and making training fun and participatory.

Our gamification is structured using a combination of points, badges, levels, and team leader boards. Users earn and follow their growing training points and achievement badges, while teams can watch leader boards and compete for the top position, encouraging positive organizational competition, increasing participation and propelling training program success.

Quizzes and assessments play an important role in ensuring organizational compliance, determining program effectiveness and assessing user knowledge gaps.

Security Mentor end-of-lesson quizzes measure trainee knowledge recall and retention, while pre- and post-training assessments create an initial baseline and provide metrics from which overall program performance can be evaluated.

Automated Notifications

You are busy keeping your organization secure, and don’t have time to track down users to remind them to take training. Your users are busy doing their jobs, and can forget to take training.

Our automated notification system takes the burden off you and your users with email alerts for account activation, new lessons released, and lessons past-due.

Reinforcement

Computer-based training is a powerful tool, but often lacks the ability to easily summarize what is learned, thus reducing retention.

Security Mentor offers users the option to view, download and/or print key tips and takeaways from our lessons. And to support users being secure at home, we approve this content to be shared with users’ friends and family.

Key Administration Features
