Mentor, pioneer of security awareness training employees love to
take, today announced that Omnicom Media Group, the media services
division of Omnicom Group Inc. (NYSE: OMC), has licensed and will deploy
Security Mentor online security awareness training for its 10,000
The Security Mentor security awareness training program enables
companies in every industry to reduce risk by creating a more secure
workforce. Employees are given critical security information that leads
to fundamental behavior changes and significantly reduces risk to
commercial and government organizations.
The need for security awareness training for today’s organizations has
never been greater. “Five years ago you had a defined perimeter with
more control of your data. With the advent of mobile computing i.e.
smartphones, tablets, etc., one can't guarantee where the data will
rest,” said Dan Reynolds, VP Chief of Security and Information
Architecture for Omnicom Media Group. “Today, your employees are the
perimeter. If we are not educating our employees about security, then we
are not protecting our business.”
Prior to selecting Security Mentor, Omnicom Media Group had been
conducting employee security awareness training using its own
“home-baked” program. “Yet when we saw a demo of Security Mentor CORE,
we immediately liked the training's rich security content, user-friendly
interface and ability to measure training penetration for our employees.
This reporting ability is key -- I can easily see who has taken the
training and where more follow-up is needed,” said Mr. Reynolds.
“Over the last year, we have seen a significant increase in demand for
our employee training as organizations realize technology alone is not
enough to protect confidential data. Our customers tell us that
employees not only enjoy the training, but that it has a played a
significant role in changing employee behavior to reduce risk to their
organization,” said Marie White, CEO of Security Mentor. “We are very
pleased that Omnicom Media Group has chosen Security Mentor security
awareness training to be part of its defense-in-depth security strategy.”
In addition to providing the necessary security awareness training,
Security Mentor also will help the Omnicom Media Group meet employee
compliance of its security policies. Security Mentor’s new Policy
Management service will host Omnicom Media Group’s security policy
documentation and provide reporting on employee viewing and
acknowledgment of policies. While this new feature will first be used by
Omnicom Media Group, Security Mentor will offer this capability to other
customers soon thereafter.
About Security Mentor Security Awareness Training
Mentor CORE trains employees on 12 important security topics
including Phishing, Office Security, Mobile Security, and Information
Protection. Brief, interactive lessons give employees critical security
information in an easy-to-understand format. The lessons, written by
certified information security professionals, can be customized and
branded for any organization.
Simple to administer, organizations can take Security Mentor training as
a service from Security Mentor's website with username/password
authentication or federated Single Sign-on (SSO), or as SCORM-compliant
lessons hosted on an organization’s internal, corporate LMS (Learning
Management System). The LMS tracks trainee progress and completion, and
provides training status reports.
Security Mentor is demonstrating its security awareness training this
week at the RSA
Conference USA 2014 at Booth #532.
