PhishMe Adds International Training Modules to Complimentary Computer Based Training Program

Leesburg, VA – October 31, 2016 – PhishMe, a global provider of phishing defense and intelligence solutions for the enterprise, today announced the availability of new international modules for its complimentary CBT program, CBFree. The release, which follows PhishMe’s recognition as a leader by Gartner in the research firm’s 2016 Security Awareness Computer-Based Training Magic Quadrant, provides six fully translated and localized editions of CBFree. Available to any organization regardless of whether they are a PhishMe customer, CBFree provides employees with security awareness training on today’s greatest cybersecurity threats including spear-phishing, ransomware, and business email compromise (BEC).

Released during National Cyber Security Month in the U.S., the new modules have been delivered as a response to the huge number of localization requests PhishMe receives every month from organizations wanting to meet compliance obligations. Recognizing that cybercrime is a global problem and that many organizations have an internal requirement to provide a broader program for security awareness training to their employees, the localized modules for CBFree enable access to world class non-English CBT lessons.

“CBFree has proved extremely popular among companies looking to provide awareness CBTs to expand their security awareness programs and satisfy compliance requirements,” explained Jeff Orloff, Director of Content at PhishMe. “With our new international modules, we’ve made this valuable educational content available to a much wider audience. That said, PhishMe acknowledges that awareness is not the problem. CBTs alone won’t address the full extent of the cybersecurity problem. By offering CBTs at no cost, PhishMe is enabling organizations to focus their resources on instituting impactful programs to effect real changes in behavior.”

Now available in English, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and Portuguese, PhishMe’s current library of complimentary CBTs includes 15 security awareness modules and three compliance training modules. The second phase of the International launch will accommodate for languages in the Middle East, Russia and Italy.

“Cyber Security Month has been illuminating this year for the security industry,” concluded Rohyt Belani, CEO, PhishMe. “The level of discussion around threats faced by the business community is higher and more complex than ever before. This, coupled with the growing popularity of our CBFree program and demand for international modules, emphasizes the growing need for company-wide engagement around cybersecurity. However, if we want to make a dent in the enormous scale of this problem and protect global enterprise now and in the future, we must continually expose employees to safe, managed experiences that condition them to adjust core behaviors. Only then will our line of defense be strong enough to make a difference.”
