The leading companies are working to create awareness programs based on a strategy for improving organizational awareness and creating risk-aware cultures.” - Tom Pendergast, Chief Strategist, Security, Privacy and Compliance, MediaPro.

MediaPro, recognized by Gartner as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Training Vendors, today unveiled its industry-leading vision that will change the way organizations have approached security, privacy, and compliance training. This vision, the Adaptive Awareness Framework, is informed by MediaPro’s more than 20 years of experience in e-Learning and instructional design.

The Framework, MediaPro’s proprietary model for supporting tools needed to expand employee knowledge and change behavior, is closely aligned with and in support of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, and emphasizes continual assessment and improvement.

“Our vision for an Adaptive Awareness Framework is that it will be an industry driver,” said Steve Conrad, Managing Director, MediaPro. “Part of that drive is our new Adaptive Awareness Portal, which serves as yet another resource for organizations seeking an integrated awareness solution tied to a framework like ours. Others have tried to adopt our ideas as their own, but they can’t match the breadth and depth of knowledge we have in the e-Learning and instructional design space, informed by our vision of transforming the employee awareness training industry with a proven framework.”

The Adaptive Awareness Framework, which supports MediaPro’s suite of award-winning products, is adaptive by design and enables organizations to:

  •     Analyze their employee-related risks
  •     Plan a program to target knowledge and behavior change
  •     Train employees with best-in-class online learning
  •     Reinforce the message with engaging communication and behavior-targeted interventions

“We’re seeing awareness programs evolve beyond just training,” said Tom Pendergast, Chief Strategist, Security, Privacy and Compliance, MediaPro. “The leading companies are working to create awareness programs based on a strategy for improving organizational awareness and creating risk-aware cultures.”

The cloud-based Adaptive Awareness Portal, available soon, enables customers to easily manage all elements of their awareness program and deliver consistent, engaging messaging with measurable results, via a graphic dashboard. Integration with the portal is simple, opening up possibilities for further insights into employee performance pre- and post-education, and key stats showing the ROI of the current efforts.
