Today’s digital world is very different from the world we used to live in just a few years ago and security risks are now inevitably arising in every organization. We know that the security of any organization is only as good as its security culture and, therefore, security awareness training is a must-have for companies all around the world.
However, there are some challenges that arise when organizations start running their own awareness training and managing their own security content. Some use extensive content libraries in which new documents might go unnoticed by users. Others use a variety of different platforms, making it very time-consuming for the administrator to track all requirements and policy acceptance. And there are yet others that don’t even have the necessary technologies to provide for learning adoption and policy acceptance – causing a burden on company resources.
This might lead to compliance issues, as these companies do not have a centralized overview of their compliance readiness, for example, in the form of an analytics dashboard that allows report downloads for auditors. Understanding the maturity of their security culture also becomes very complex. And for end-users unstructured learning processes end up negatively impacting their motivation and engagement.
With SoSafe’s Content Management solution, many of these problems get solved. Organizations can customize their e-learning, and also add and track their own content to boost employee engagement and increase audit and compliance readiness.

Our Content Management solution: Your training, your way
Each organization has different training needs and challenges when it comes to employee motivation. Old training methods based on extensive content libraries and yearly box-tick training sessions are no longer enough. That’s why it’s important to offer employees short e-learning modules containing storytelling and gamification that leverage principles from motivational psychology. In fact, our internal data shows that turning on gamification in e-learning training increases user engagement by 54 percent.
Personalized learning also increases learner interactivity, engagement, and retention. A survey of L&D professionals at the Learning Technologies exhibition found that nearly four out of five can see a clear link between personalized learning and improved employee engagement. Therefore, a combination of engaging content that sticks and personalization is key to make sure your training is relevant for employees.
Knowing that both employee motivation and compliance fulfillment are crucial for organizations’ overall security, we decided to extend our platform and help you personalize it with your own learning content, policies, and corporate brand identity. Once all is uploaded, you can track and report everything in one place.
Here are the main features of our new Content Management solution:
It is now possible to upload your cyber security content to our learning platform to adapt the security training to your needs. You can use your existing content in different formats (PPTs, audio, video, etc.), convert it to a compatible format (SCORM), and easily and quickly upload it to our platform.
If it is the first time you hear the word “SCORM”, don’t worry. You will see that converting your files to this format is seamless by using tools such as ActivePresenter or Articulate Storyline.
From security to HR and work safety policies, we’ve got you covered. Our platform enables you to upload your policies, present them to your employees, and track their acceptance with downloadable audit-ready reports.
