Personas in Security Awareness

Most security awareness training responsibility falls only in the hands of IT. We don’t think that’s fair to IT or the rest of the organization because we are all working together to stay secure.

Curricula recognizes that there are more players involved in building a security culture in your organization, so why is all the pressure on IT?

Learn more about why each of these personas rely on Curricula to help them with their role and work together to keep their organization secure.

Why Compliance Teams Love Curricula

Compliance is becoming part of every organization and can’t be ignored. But great compliance leaders realize that being compliant doesn’t necessarily mean being secure. They understand a great compliance program is built on identifying and managing risk.

Why HR teams Love Curricula

HR teams want their employees to be happy and safe above all else. When those needs are taken care of, the company can focus on its mission. HR helps onboard new employees and teaches the organizational policies when stores some pretty sensitive information.

HR teams typically don’t have an IT security background, so they chose Curricula because we make it fun. They recognize the importance of making learning fun for employees. Policies and procedures are important, but if no one understands them, then what is the point? HR teams love Curricula because they can document and track all new employee onboarding training and records in one dashboard. Curricula makes it easy.

Why CFOs Love Curricula

CFOs don’t want to get hit by ransomware. They don’t want to recover from a costly data breach. They don’t want to ruin their reputation with customers because of a cyber attack. They understand that employee security awareness training is a priority to make this a reality. CFOs love Curricula’s simple pricing and affordable pricing plans for their budget. They recognize that a quality security awareness training program is one of the best cyber security investments their organization can make.

Why Employees Love Curricula

We saved the best for last. Employees are the backbone of our organization and are the entire reason we have a security awareness training program in the first place. The problem is that employees typically never get to choose their security awareness program! We don’t think that’s fair and want employees to have a voice in their options.

For years employees have been forced into boring security awareness programs, but with Curricula that all changes. They’re excited to take security training and can’t wait for their next episode to become available. Employees choose Curricula because it’s fun, exciting, and memorable.
