ATLANTA, GA — May 23, 2016 — The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) is joining with Atlanta-based startup Aware Force to help organizations improve cyber security by targeting their most common cause of breaches: employee behavior.
Aware Force is a new interactive platform that offers video, audio, quizzes, infographics and articles to alert employees to ways they can behave safer online at work and at home. The service is customized for each organization’s brand and offers new issues twice a month available to employees via an email link or the organization’s intranet.
Aware Force also produces content on demand when a major cybersecurity news story breaks.
TAG and its new national technology security organization, National Technology Security Coalition (NTSC) will be offering the Aware Force service to members with special pricing. “This is an area of growing importance in every industry,” says Tino Mantella, President of TAG & NTSC. “TAG and NTSC are focused on adding value to all our members and Aware Force is another step forward in that.”
“The key is offering interesting, bite-size information to employees that’s interesting, easy to understand, and always current,” says Aware Force founder Richard Warner. “We learned what’s most effective while developing a pilot program for one of the world’s largest health care organizations.”
Aware Force features interviews with many of the nation’s leading cyber security experts such as the State of Georgia’s CIO, Calvin Rhodes, Sarath Geethankumar, Head of Security Architecture at Home Depot, and Mark Peters, Director for Automotive Business Development at Security Innovation just to name a few.
Aware Force will offer clients metrics on how their employees use the service plus add-on services including audio and video profiles of executives, custom posters, handouts, content in multiple languages, phishing simulations and management of contests.
A free version of Aware Force will be available to members of TAG and NTSC each month. Organizations that subscribe to Aware Force will receive two editions each month with interactive content that is branded for the subscriber’s organization.
