What do you use for employee cyber security training?

We require new hires to complete a cyber security training as part of onboarding (ie. use a password manager, beware of phishing attempts, etc.) Looking into some alternatives and wondering what people are using. Bonus points if there's an integration with Rippling (HRIS)!

There are services out there like KnowBe4 (you can search online for other similar ones). In my organization (small startup), we just have our CTO prepare a PowerPoint which he goes through with every new employee.

It really depends on your needs:
* Are you regulated and need to show evidence of such training to auditors?
* Is this a one-off training or do all employees require to have a refresher training periodically?
* How big is your organization?
* Do you have an IT team (or cybersecurity team)?

KnowBe4 is terrible, the product side is ok but the training they provide is horrendous and there for a complete waste of time.

I'm still waiting for organisations to realise that forcing someone to do some terrible training and recording that ticked box against their name doesn't help your outcome.

Hey Stephanie, I had the exact same question in my previous company. I was looking for something easy to set up, that wouldn't be as passive as watching a video, and ideally something that would be personalized depending on the employee.

I ended up creating Albert (, the first cybersecurity companion on Slack. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

How do you find new software to use?

The market is bursting with new software, a lot of new products are launching every day. A few months ago I posted on Capiche about my SaaS idea. Your feedback is priceless and helped us to change...
