Improve learning outcomes and strengthen your security culture with behavioral science-based methods

The principles used in online games as well as popular apps are well-suited for not only private use, but for professional contexts as well. Data from our awareness platform shows that if organizations complement their cyber security e-learning with gamification elements, activation rates increase by 43%.

With gamified cyber security training, employees learn in an engaging and highly effective way. They progress though challenging levels, can monitor their progress, and receive badges and awards along the way – encouraging them to learn, and helping you to foster secure behavior.

Simply put, protecting your organization from cyberattacks is more successful when your employees are engaged. In this free guide, you will learn more about:

  • How to integrate gamification elements in your awareness training to increase employee activation.
  • What makes human-centered design in cyber security so important and beneficial.
  • How behavioral science-based methods can boost your employees’ learning success and security awareness levels.

“With gamified e-learning, we add meaningful and bite-sized elements to our awareness training. We deliberately select techniques that fulfill individual basic human needs, such as the desire for reward. This makes it easier to remember what was learned and to become more successful in applying it to day-to-day work.”
