How do you get employees excited to learn information security policies, procedures and develop new habits? Clearly, training and awareness posters are not enough. And we know that most compliance training programs are both boring and rarely change the habits of our workforce. We need a new approach to learning, one that is both compelling and fun. Otherwise, the old insanity definition will certainly be applicable to the "proven" learning methods pushed by compliance trainers. And wouldn't it be nice to receive reports with smart analytical metrics that measure the effectiveness of learning content, retention levels of our workforce, and whether we changed the habits of our workforce - or not?
The fundamental issue is that our old learning methods are so out-of-touch with new digital learning methods. Just look at people who are hooked on an internet game and smartphone games. Wouldn't it be nice if we could get people at work to show the same intensity learn new new information security policies and procedures and adopt new security habits? We explored the digital learning industry for workforce training games, referred to gamification solutions, and we found Ringorang™ . Next we partnered with Vergence Entertainment, the creators of Ringorang™, to deploy an information security game for (Puget Sound Energy (PSE).
