Increase Attendance at Security Training

Drive maximum attendance at training and face to face events.

This is a serious issue so use all the tools at your disposal to promote and drive attendance.

 

 

The SnapComms RSVP tool allows you to send pop up RSVP invites to targeted employees on their desktop and mobile devices. RSVP’s will repeat until answered thereby ensuring maximum participation.

Measure and Track Employee Security Awareness 

 

Desktop Quizzes and Surveys. The SnapComms desktop message software delivers surveys and quizzes to the desktop (and other devices) in visual formats and with auto-reminders to ensure high response rates. Use desktop surveys and quizzes to:

 

  • Benchmark and track. Understand current security awareness levels, current behaviors and assess employee understanding of policy and internal security compliance

  • Reinforce. Quiz employees to reinforce security policies and best practice.

  • Control groups. The SnapComms platform makes it easy to send quizzes and surveys to small sample groups.  This means that you can measure and track security awareness (via different small sample groups) more often and still get statistically relevant data.

Define your target audiences


What information does each audience require? Are there high risk areas or privileged users that need additional or different types of security communication? Are there translation or localization requirements?

Target messages to different target audiences depending on the security issues the different audiences face. SnapComms allows you to do this by integrating with your existing Active Directory Structures and provide other targeting options such as CSV upload.
