Security Awareness & Compliance Training for Employees

Poor password security, careless data protection practices and constant phishing attacks continue to be the leading causes of security incidents. Educated and informed employees are the first line of defense for safeguarding organizations from threats like malware, phishing, and ransomware. By creating a security-first culture through continuous training, organizations strengthen their ability to minimize security incidents.

“We all respond best from a place of knowledge, not fear. Strong leadership in security awareness means providing employees with the skills and support they need to face their daily battles. By doing so, we can change their response to news of another breach from panic to confidence,”

Marina Kelly, Technical Director, GLS.

“This partnership with GLS strengthens our offerings to customers on our global Corporate Learning Marketplace, as well as EdCast Learning Experience Platform (LXP) who have continuously shown their interest in having a training curriculum that addresses cybersecurity and data privacy enterprise-wide,”


Sukhbir Jasuja, CEO Leapest by EdCast.
