Why International Security Partners switched from in-person awareness training to gamification

Our partner International Security Partners is a risk management organization that works for some of the biggest corporate brands in The Netherlands. They offer services ranging from pre-employment screening and integrity investigation to cyber security.

We talked to Evert Slaman, general manager at International Security Partners, about how they stopped offering their customers traditional in-person security awareness training and now introduce them to Guardey’s gamified solution.

The challenge to replace labor-intensive training

“We used to offer in-person security awareness training to our customers, but this way of training has some limitations.”

“First of all, you can’t do in-person training regularly, which is why it often happens only once a year. It’s also quite time-consuming. We used to make custom training materials for each specific organization or department. A trainer would have to go to the physical location and could usually train about 15 people at a time during a session of 1,5 hours. This becomes a huge task when an organization has 500 employees or more.”

“So we were looking for a security awareness training solution that employees could use to train regularly and wasn’t as labor intensive as our old method.”

Why Guardey was the best fit for International Security Partner’s customers

“We evaluated a couple of different security awareness training solutions and concluded that Guardey is the best fit for our customers. The main reason is that Guardey uses a lot of gamification elements to engage users. It has a storyline, short challenges, and a leaderboard, which causes friendly competition among colleagues.”

“Aside from the standard training content, Guardey also allows us to add custom training content. This is important for organizations that have specific security policies that don’t necessarily match with Guardey’s content. We can even use user-generated content from organizations within similar industries, which is very helpful and saves us time.”

“We have even decided to start using Guardey ourselves. If you offer your customers a product and you’re excited about it, I believe it’s important that you use it yourself too. So far, we really enjoy training with Guardey, even as security professionals.”
