Digital Defense Announces New Offering To Thwart Social Engineering Attacks

Cyber Crime Prevention & Safety Program developed to help organizations of all sizes create and sustain a culture of security

SAN ANTONIO, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Defense, Inc. (DDI), a leading provider of managed security assessment solutions announced today the launch of an innovative campaign approach to information security education in conjunction with the release of a case study on the organization's security training product, SecurED(TM).

DDI, known for facilitating a holistic approach to information security, encourages organizations to enhance security by addressing the human vulnerability factor and strengthening defenses through a highly aware workforce. DDI's newly launched Cyber Crime Prevention & Safety Program (CCPSP) is a fully managed training campaign, developed to help organizations of all sizes create and sustain a culture of security. Incorporating SecurED(TM), DDI's cutting edge security training content, with an innovative campaign management process, this program is unlike anything in the industry and provides a security training solution designed to effectively educate employees and mitigate potential breaches.

Larry Hurtado, DDI President & CEO provided insight on the origin of the program. "We received feedback from several enterprises that they were excited about our SecurED training content but needed assistance in rolling out a comprehensive security awareness campaign to build excitement and facilitate employee investment in thwarting potential attacks. Our qualitative research resulted in CCPSP, a comprehensive campaign that incorporates content, corporate communications, team building incentives, testing, success measures and more to make employees the first line of defense in the war against cyber crime."

In conjunction with the CCPSP introduction, DDI released a case study demonstrating the effectiveness of the SecurED training content. The study, featuring People First Federal Credit Union (FCU), examines the organization's security education challenges and their proactive approach to addressing issues revealed through a Social Engineering engagement.

Susan Phillips, People First FCU Vice President & CIO, stated, "We recognized the importance of a highly trained staff to combat the security threats that are a constant concern to our organization. The SecurED training provided effective education in a manner that was fun and engaging, increasing the retention of security best practices and buy-in from employees. Our staff is invested in our security program and fully embraces their role in protecting People First from a devastating security breach."
