Cyber Stars 365 Launched to Provide Improved Cyber Security Awareness Metrics
The Cyber Stars Initiative has been an imbedded part of cyber security strategy for organisations across the globe since 2015, with over 200,000 Cyber Stars worldwide. With increased demand for metrics that highlight both knowledge and risk within an organisation, our client demand has led to the development and implementation of Cyber Stars 365. A sustainable cyber security awareness solution that provides a 24/7, 365 day insight across your business. The platform provides detailed metrics on knowledge and engagement over time whilst allowing for detailed insight into specific user groups, job functions or locations. In turn, these metrics provide evidence for regulators and also inform effective awareness strategies. Future awareness and education activities can be developed based upon an analytical understanding of training needs and targeted for the correct user groups, eliminating the requirement for unnecessary re-training.
Questions are grouped based on specific areas of threat type and include understanding of threat, mitigation and response, with an opportunity to tailor questions to specific organisational needs. Once learners provide a satisfactory level of understanding for a specific category it will go dormant and focus more on areas where knowledge and retention requires more focus. This ensures that the learning experience and associated assessment is individually tailored across the entire organisation.
System users are assigned to knowledge categories based on their level of access, risk or function. Questions are then derived at random from these categories and can be answered at a users leisure. A user can then see their engagement and individual knowledge retention across all categories for which they are enrolled. Engagement and knowledge can be measured over time and comparisons derived from data collected from across the business, truly identifying high risk user groups and areas for focus of awareness strategy.
Management dashboards allow for comparison of all users based on engagement and knowledge. Filters can be applied to analyse data based upon job function, region or a number of other demographics. Acceptable levels of knowledge can be defined and monitored for each user group and in cases where users fall below certain levels of knowledge, specific and targeted training can be provided at an individual level using built in platform training materials.
