Wombat is providing a complete offering of posters, articles, screen saver or electronic message board images that reinforce the lessons taught in their interactive training modules. The same images and icons used in Wombat's interactive training modules are used in the security awareness materials to aid in the recall of learned topics.

Wombat's reasonably priced offering provides unlimited use of content for length of the license. A web-based portal allows companies to customize with their unique logo, download, print and ship to any location. It also provides customer support to make the production process easy. The design of the materials facilitates easy approval with internal communications stakeholders. Materials include:

  • Articles -13 different articles for use in internal newsletters or intranets
  • Posters - 13 different posters in two sizes (11" x 17" and 24" x 36") to reinforce lessons visually
  • Images -13 horizontal poster images (1024 x 768) for use as screen savers or on electronic message boards, etc.

Wombat's award-winning "Security Training Platform" enables security officers to effectively and measurably train their employees about today's most pressing cyber security issues including social engineering, e-mail security, password management, social networking, smartphone/BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) vulnerabilities, phishing, and compliance topics such as personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI) and payment card information data security standard (PCI DSS).

Wombat's training methodology utilizes learning science principles and includes employee mock attacks with brief embedded training, as well as a full complement of 10-minute software training modules which can change employee behavior and significantly reduce an organization's susceptibility to cyber-attack. Reporting capabilities in the Platform provide both aggregate and individual data to guide follow-up training programs, and show improved results over time.
