MediaPRO Releases New Training Solution to Address Larger Security and Privacy Threat Landscape

May 14, 2019

BOTHELL, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2019--

MediaPRO, a leading provider of security awareness and privacy awareness training, today announced the availability of TrainingPacks TM, an easier and faster way to engage and educate employees on persistent threats to cybersecurity and data privacy.

With as many as 75% of U.S. employees struggling with a lack of awareness to stop preventable cybersecurity incidents, delivering effective training has become a crucial step for businesses to protect themselves from ever-evolving cyberthreats.

MediaPRO’s TrainingPacks allow companies of all sizes to deliver security and privacy awareness training that will equip their employees to protect against cyberthreats and keep sensitive data secure.

TrainingPacks combine engaging, flexible, out-of-the box courses with supporting educational videos, posters, and articles, impact reports, a phishing simulator tool, and customer support. With TrainingPacks, organizations now have the tools to:

  • Engage employees with training that meets them where they are using interactivity and real-world scenarios and examples
  • Show training effectiveness with employee knowledge assessments that provide insight into employee strengths and growth areas
  • Address a more complete threat landscape with training materials that go beyond phishing prevention to address data protection, incident reporting, industry regulation-specific topics, corporate compliance, and more

“Our TrainingPacks answer the question we hear most often: how can you make it simpler for me to run a real awareness program?” MediaPRO Chief Learning Officer Tom Pendergast said. “These TrainingPacks contain just what you need to get the job done, whether you’re just getting started on meeting a single regulatory need or ramping up for a more comprehensive approach.”

TrainingPacks are flexible enough to meet most any training need while comprehensive enough to allow organizations to deliver a complete training program out-of-the-box. TrainingPack course content is continually refreshed, and new content is added to reflect emerging threats and the latest regulations and standards. MediaPRO has released three comprehensive TrainingPacks and four focused on specific industry regulations:

All TrainingPacks come with a pre-assessment tool to better align training to employee needs, reinforcement materials such as videos, articles, and posters to ensure lessons are retained, the ability to tailor courses or build new ones from scratch, 10-minute-or-less microlearning options, and a dedicated client success manager. Other optional available features include a Phishing Simulator, translation of course content into 21 different languages, MediaPRO course customization, and LMS hosting.
