San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) December 08, 2016
Inspired eLearning, the nation’s leading security and compliance training company, today announced the release of an e-learning module created specifically for CEOs and other C-Suite executives. The C-Suite dedicated program was designed to ensure that today’s C-Suite executives can better counter the ever-growing threats to corporate security.

Felix Odigie, CEO of Inspired eLearning, states, “Many of today’s CEO’s are viewed as corporate rock stars, they have huge social media followings and the world sees firsthand their lives via the content they routinely push out. While this provides them with greater visibility, it also provides potential hackers with a far greater means to gain access or counter their cyber security protocols.”
From the last quarter of 2015 through the first quarter in 2016, phishing and spear phishing with the intent to put malware on systems, including ransomware, has increased by 780%. Spear phishing is based on specific knowledge of its “mark” and is gained, in many times, from content used in social media or in public remarks.
Even though Sony, Target, eBay and JP Morgan Chase boast some of the most sophisticated and expensive cyber security protection in the world, they were very publicly hacked. This is not just a Fortune 500 problem. According to the National Cyber Security Alliance, one in five small businesses fall victim to cybercrime each year. Of those, nearly 60 percent go out of business within six months after an attack.
Odigie adds, “With hacks on corporations happening at an alarming rate, we have seen the impact and damage the release of sensitive C-Suite communications and other corporate secrets can have on a company. Our C-Suite educational platform is specifically designed for senior executives and was built to help them gain a much better understanding of the threats they face everyday.”
