New features

Translate & localize training for every learner

Train a global workforce easier than ever by translating and localizing the end-to-end learning experience for every employee. The Infosec IQ learner dashboard can now detect the language set on the learner’s web browser to automatically translate and localize their learner dashboard and assigned training modules and assessments.

Learners can also self-select and save their preferred language choice to customize their training experience.

Customize your email quarantine

Quarantine filter rules

By default, emails reported by your employees via PhishNotify are sent to your email quarantine (and PhishHunter) so you or members of your security team can analyze and respond to threats. With new quarantine rules, you can set conditions to automatically filter out safe emails and improve the workflow when reviewing your email quarantine or PhishHunter console.

For example, if an employee reports your organization’s internal email, you can automatically prevent it from entering your quarantine based on the email subject line, header information or both.

Updated quarantine notifications

You can now customize the notification email you or your security staff receive when employees report a suspicious email. Specify the subject line, notification frequency and notification recipients from your PhishNotify Quarantine Settings. By default, employee-reported emails are attached in quarantine notifications. You can now select your preferred attachment format (txt or eml) to easily analyze reported emails.

Deliver a better learner experience with the improved module player

Accessibility improvements

We’ve improved closed captioning and training module navigation in Infosec IQ to make training more accessible for every learner. The default closed caption text size is now larger with a contrasting background to make it easier for learners to read. Learners can also access closed caption settings to adjust the text size, color, background, font and more to optimize their viewing experience.

The closed caption settings and all buttons on the module player are now larger, keyboard navigable and responsive to the learner’s device. Each of these accessibility improvements are supported with every major web browser, including Internet Explorer 11.

Usability enhancements

In addition to the accessibility improvements above, learners can now adjust the training module volume and watch on full screen mode. The training module table of contents was also replaced with a chapters feature, allowing learners to easily rewatch a previous section or skip past chapters they have already watched.

Note: The module player enhancements above are live for all customers delivering Infosec IQ via SCORM as a Service and for the Need to Know, WORKed, PCI DSS and future training modules only. These updates do not require you to download new SCORM packages or update active training campaigns.

Administrative enhancements

Update employee email addresses

You can now edit and update any learner’s email address in the event of a name or email address change. Updating a learner’s email address preserves the learner’s phishing and training history and does not disrupt SSO learner authentication.

Flexibility added to custom sending domain configuration

We removed SPF record validation restrictions when setting up a custom sending domain to give program administrators more flexibility when configuring and using a domain with existing SPF records.
