Overall Satisfaction with Infosec IQ

We are using Infosec IQ across our entire organization to implement Security Awareness training.
  • Reports and tracking
  • Content availability and variety
  • User friendly dashboard
  • Phishing testing and simulations
  • More templates for phishing testing
  • More training content
  • More frequent updates to content
  • Better training with content variety and more interactive
  • Dashboard easily navigated and training is easily implemented quickly and effectively
Infosec [IQ] is far different from SANS because we’ve been able to implement more interactive and fun training that is constantly changing to keep up with security awareness best practices. SANS provided us the same content over and over again which became boring and repetitive to our users making them less likely to complete training in a timely fashion. We believe Infosec [IQ] will change that in our future by providing more interesting forms of training in the form of videos, fliers, games, etc.

Infosec [IQ] has been great to implement and provide training content to both our internal employees and outside clients/contractors. The platform is easy to use and build training that is tailored to individuals based on their role or department. Phishing testing simulations have gone really well for our company to identify areas of improvement and where further education is needed.

Using Infosec IQ

250 - IT, HR, finance, marketing, client success managers, contractors and third party associates all use our security awareness training to stay up to date on the latest security threats and attacks and how to handle them. We’ve also implemented phishing testing to determine areas of weakened and things that we could improve upon within our company.
3 - We utilize 2 IT administrators to handle daily support and implementation of training. Our IT director is involved periodically to go over new training programs and decide what is the best content to provide for our employees as well as our outside clients and contractors. Our users login for training and education every quarter and we have ongoing phishing testing.
  • Phishing simulations
  • Training and education
  • Reporting and tracking of user activity and areas of weakness
  • Phishing simulation
  • Content variety in the form of games, humorous videos and interactive training packets
  • Building company specific training and being able to provide training based on roles and departments
  • Building our own training videos and platforms
  • Role specific training and development
So far this platform has worked really well for our company. Feedback has been great from our users because training is interesting, interactive and always being updated. Phishing simulations have been extremely helpful for us to stay compliant with ISO requirements and provide insight into areas we need to improve upon to educate our users better and make them more aware of vulnerabilities and threats

Evaluating Infosec IQ and Competitors

Yes - We replaced our SANS training dashboard with Infosec IQ because we had a hard time utilizing their dashboard - it seemed very outdated and reporting was hard to track progress of users and training completion. The content available in SANS seemed to never change or be updated in a way to keep up with the changing world of security awareness and threats.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Product features were the most important to us deciding to purchase Infosec IQ. We needed a platform that had regularly updated content and ways for us to also implement phishing simulations to stay compliant with ISO requirements and provide a better training experience for our users. We’ve been able to educate our users on better clues to look for when being faced with phishing attacks and how to handle those.
We evaluated a few others security awareness training platforms but nothing stacked up against Infosec IQ in the way that it was the right price for our company with the most features available to us. We’re very happy with our decision to move forward with our purchase and would not change that.
