My vision: To help every individual learn to manage cyber risks. After a decade of teaching security awareness, I created a platform.

Based on working with many customers, I found several reasons why security awareness programs often struggled or failed:

1. Employees felt the training was boring and just a necessary evil
2. Employees did not see relevant value in the training
3. Employees received no feedback on their choices
4. Employees were not rewarded for doing well
5. Employees had no safe way to practice making risk decisions
6. Employees could not see if others were participating
7. Content of topics and scenarios couldn’t easily be tailored
8. Management had no data about the actual proficiency of staff

After studying gamification extensively in many forms, I imagined how it could be applied to awareness training.

As a result, the Click Armor security awareness training and engagement platform was developed to address these specific requiremenst, in a scalable, flexible way that’s fun for employees, and effective in helping manage risks from employee vulnerabilities.


Scott Wright is CEO of Click Armor, the gamified simulation platform that helps businesses avoid breaches by engaging employees to improve their proficiency in making decisions for cyber security risk and corporate compliance. He has over 20 years of cyber security coaching experience and was creator of the Honey Stick Project for Smartphones as a demonstration in measuring human vulnerabilities.
