Kaspersky has unveiled its new Kaspersky Adaptive Online Training, developed in partnership with Area9 Lyceum. The solution generates a security awareness curriculum that is tailored to each individual user’s learning needs, as a personal tutor would do for their students. The content for this new enterprise-grade solution is based on Kaspersky’s cybersecurity expertise and delivered in accordance with modern learning techniques.
To help companies provide essential knowledge without overloading staff, Kaspersky, in partnership with Area9 Lyceum, is presenting its new Kaspersky Adaptive Online Training offering.
The platform builds a specific learning path for each user, taking into account the knowledge that employees already have and their confidence in cybersecurity awareness. To achieve this specific path, Area9 Lyceum’s intelligent ‘biological’ algorithms intermix questions with the content, assessing both the knowledge of the subject and the confidence in responses as an employee studies. The algorithms optimize the path to mastery, skipping over the content the member of staff already knows and helping them master concepts and topics they are less familiar with. This way, it may take a skilled employee less than 10 minutes to learn only what they are missing, whereas others may need half an hour to complete the entire module, which gives them more time devoted to learning objectives which are the most difficult for the student.
The learning content covers passwords, email security, web browsing, social networks and messengers, endpoint security, mobile devices and GDPR (which will be available in Q3 2020) topics. This skillset ensures that employees can work with IT resources with minimal cybersecurity risks. All lessons and tests are built on real-life situations and examples of attacks which have happened in the real world.
Kaspersky Adaptive Online Training is easy to manage. An administrator only needs to select which modules a group of users should complete, while the solution will send users the necessary link to their required lessons. The solution also provides detailed statistics on employees’ performance and monitoring of students who are confident in insecure actions.
The cloud-based solution is available in English, German, Spanish, Arabic, French, Italian and Russian.
