Cybersecurity awareness training – the words themselves often conjure visions of dusty manuals and droning lectures, leaving employees disengaged and vulnerable to real-world phishing threats. But what if, instead of passive regurgitation, you could transform security training into a thrilling game of cat and mouse, pitting your employees’ skills against the cunning tactics of simulated cybercriminals? Introducing HumanFirewall, the gamified phishing training platform that makes learning cybersecurity fun, engaging, and most importantly, effective.
