What’s new in Infosec IQ — Winter 2020

December 31, 2019

New features, major improvements and fresh training content were added to Infosec IQ over the past three months, making it easier for you to prepare your employees to beat the cyber threats they face. In this post, we highlight the top additions from Q4.

Jump ahead

The new learner experience

Personalized learner dashboard

The Infosec IQ learner dashboard gives each employee a personalized learning center to complete their assigned cybersecurity training and review past performance. This encourages learners to take an active role in their cybersecurity education, gives them the ability to learn from past mistakes and grants them the flexibility to complete training when it’s most convenient.



Training recommendations

Thanks to your favorite TV, movie and video streaming platforms, the way we consume content has fundamentally shifted. Your employees don’t just prefer content tailored to their interests and preferences, they expect it. Security awareness and training content isn’t any different.

Our content recommendation engine provides elective content personalized to each learner, empowering them to take an active role in their cybersecurity education. Recommended training content is served on the learner dashboard and tracked to help you measure employee content consumption and report on cybersecurity culture change at your organization.
