All New Microsoft Teams App! Users Take Training and Policies Without Leaving Teams

The year may have just started, but it’s all systems go here at MetaCompliance HQ! We’re hitting the ground running with a jam-packed January release, including our brand new MyCompliance Teams App, new eLearning content, product updates, phishing templates and more.

Many organisations struggle to engage users to complete any type of training. The key is to choose the path of least resistance, and make it easy for employees to engage. With the MyCompliance Teams App, users can complete their Security Awareness Training and policies without leaving the familiarity of the Microsoft Teams platform. This new feature will help to increase user engagement, improve adoption levels and make consumption easier.

Valentine’s Phishing Templates

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner…but Cupid isn’t the only one looking for targets! There are many clever tactics used by cybercriminals to take advantage when love is in the air, including malicious Valentine’s Day e-cards, fake delivery emails and online dating scams. 

To help employees avoid identity theft, financial fraud and heartbreak, we’ve created a collection of Valentine’s-themed phish templates that imitate popular brands, including Amazon, Moonpig and Interflora.

Cyber security is serious stuff.

The problem is that many organisations believe that because of the dangers of cyber attacks, awareness training must also be delivered in a serious manner.

Join us for our upcoming webcast with Cyber Security Awareness Expert, Dana Mantilia, titled ‘Security Awareness Training: Why So Serious?’ This 30-minute webinar explores how humour can be used as an effective tool for communication, education and employee engagement.

What is your favourite eLearning

How Social Media is used as a Phishing Tool is my favourite Nano title, as it highlights how cybercriminals harvest social media apps to exploit end users using social media competitions. For me, this Nano stands out, as it educates end-users both in a professional capacity, as well as translating across into their personal life. As Facebook, LinkedIn and other social apps continue to grow, it’s vital that your employees understand the dos and don’ts and understand the risks when using the apps.”
