This KnowBe4 training module is available at the Gold, Platinum, and Diamond subscription levels.
The Security Awareness Company (SAC)
SAC added five new pieces of training content to the ModStore this month.
October 2020 Security Awareness Newsletter
Cybercrime goes well beyond data breaches and the exposure of confidential information. It can also lead to life-threatening scenarios or total disruption of services that millions of people rely upon every day.
In this issue, we dive into the many threats cybercrime poses, the results of successful attacks, and, most importantly, how to prevent cybercrime from impacting organizations and individuals. The newsletter is available in 18 languages.
PHI in Peril Puzzle
Four employees of the Better-U Clinic have violated HIPAA regulations. Find out who violated what rule, what their job title is, and which patients’ Personal Health Information (PHI) was affected.
Use this logic puzzle to challenge your users! Puzzles are shown to improve brain elasticity and helps us form new ways of doing things. In this instance, solving problems before they occur. This puzzle can be found under SAC's security documents content category.
These two video modules focus on privacy, security, and protecting confidential information.
- The What, Why, and How of HIPAA
This short brandable training module will provide you with a quick overview of what HIPAA is, why it matters, and how it impacts all of us, professionally and personally. A brief quiz is included at the end of the course.

Privacy and security are two sides of the same coin. This video module explains the differences between privacy and security and why they go hand in hand in protecting your data and organization.

Three new video modules from exploqii were released in September.
- Money Mules
A tempting job advertisement promises high commissions and demands only a small service in return: making a private bank account available for a transaction. But behind the apparently reputable offer is nothing less than money laundering. And those who take up the offer, risk being liable to prosecution. Learn about the ‘money mules’ scam in this module.
- Internet Explorer: End of Support
The first steps onto the internet: more than a few users took them with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. It hasn’t always been the most innovative web browser, but certainly is one of the most widespread. In the environment of larger organizations in particular, it may represent a risk because older versions are often used. This video module explains why...and how important it is to switch to a successor web browser.
- Overview: Cyberattacks
What is ransomware – or phishing? And what does it have to do with my data? And my organization’s security? But above all: How can I protect myself? This video module provides an initial overview of the most widespread attack methods, raises awareness of data security, and shows that cybersecurity training sessions are an effective way to protect your data, employees, and organization.
All exploqii content is available at the Diamond subscription level.
