Solution helps remote workers protect business and personal information from attacks  

Ottawa, ON, Canada, September 28, 2020Click Armor today announced the launch of “Home Alone”, its training module for remote workers delivered via its gamified security awareness platform. With millions of employees now working from home, organizations are faced with unique security challenges that require specialized training. Home Alone is designed to give employees the skills they need to fight against phishing, social engineering and other security threats facing remote workers. A single successful attack could cost an organization millions of dollars and cause significant  reputational damage.

 By completing Home Alone, employees will learn:

  • Why and how security risks are different when working from home
  • Important risks requiring special attention to safeguards such as authentication, physical security and wireless security
  • Best practices for protecting work and home information assets
  • Email and social engineering simulation exercise scenarios

According to Scott Wright, Chief Executive Officer of Click Armor, the development of Home Alone was customer-driven. “Spurred by COVID-19, the rapid move from traditional office-based work to a remote workforce is unprecedented,” said Wright. “Our customers recognize that working from home creates new security vulnerabilities that must be addressed quickly and effectively. That’s why we are excited to launch Home Alone, giving our customers the tools to fight back against the scammers and hackers targeting home-based workers.”     

“When we moved to a fully remote workforce on short-notice we wanted to be certain that our employees had the skills to deal with new cyber security challenges,” said Norman Carr, President and CEO of TRM Technologies. “Click Armor’s Home Alone module proved to be an engaging and effective way to give our employees the skills they need to work safely from anywhere.” 

Click Armor’s gamification platform provides a uniquely powerful learning experience. Unlike videos, presentations and tests used in traditional security awareness training programs, Click Armor offers game-based learning, where customers are trained in a highly interactive environment, featuring games, quizzes and simulations designed by gamification experts. Competition is encouraged through the use of leaderboards, badges and awards. According to a recent survey by Learning LMS, 83% of those who receive gamified training feel motivated, while 61% those who receive non-gamified training feel bored and unproductive. Gamification is simply a better way to learn.

Click Armor’s Home Alone module is available immediately, and is free to individuals and organizations through the end of Cyber Security Awareness Month – October, 2020. For more information, visit clickarmor.ca.
