Three new brandable training modules were added this month from Popcorn Training.

Ethics (Fraud & Anti-Money Laundering) & Digital Identity: Authentication.
  • Ethics: Fraud

  • Ethics: Anti-Money Laundering 
    Money laundering can happen in many institutions and is a lot more common than you think. Your users can find out more about the process of money laundering and what to look out for in this training module.
  • Digital ID: Authentication
    From the Building Secure Software Series, episode 6 explains how authentication is the first part of managing the digital identity of your users. Overall, this module covers the basics of authentication controls and how to implement it based on the value of the data in your applications.

All Popcorn Training content is available at the Diamond subscription level.


Three new video modules from exploqii were released in September.

Money Mules, Internet Explorer: End of Support, Cyberattacks Overview
  • Money Mules
    A tempting job advertisement promises high commissions and demands only a small service in return – making a private bank account available for a transaction. But behind the apparently reputable offer is nothing less than money laundering. And those who take up the offer, risk being liable to prosecution. Therefore, your customers can learn about the ‘money mules’ scam in this module.
  • Internet Explorer: End of Support
    The first steps onto the internet: more than a few users took them with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. It hasn’t always been the most innovative web browser. However it certainly is one of the most widespread. In the environment of larger organisations in particular, it may represent a risk because older versions are often used. This video module explains why and how important it is to switch to a successor web browser.
  • Overview: Cyberattacks
    What is ransomware – or phishing? And what does it have to do with your data? And your organisation’s security? But above all: How can your users protect themselves? To explain, this video module provides an initial overview of the most widespread attack methods and raises awareness of data security. It also shows that cybersecurity training sessions are an effective way to protect your data, employees, and organisations.

All exploqii content is available at the Diamond subscription level.

El Pescador

Remote Work 
Remote work is now a reality for many employees. It is important to remember how to ensure the security of your organisational data. Not to mention all the information from your employees, suppliers, and customers.

You can use this poster to promote and reinforce the “Remote Work” series as part of your training campaign.
