Learning Management System (LMS)

A Learning Management System (LMS) is a solution used by organizations to deploy and track online training initiatives. Typically assets, such as Training Assignments, Policies, or Surveys are uploaded to the Learning Management System, making them easily accessible, searchable, and used for remote learners. LMS solutions are great ways to manage your learning environment, making employee learning, compliance tracking, and reporting a breeze. LMS’s are often cloud-based, making them easily available to access wherever you’re located. ¬†Other times, they’re installed directly onto machines.

CyberHoot, itself, is an LMS but also much more. CyberHoot is a Cybersecurity-as-a-Service solution for SMBs, MSPs, and vCISO’s to use for their businesses and service offerings.

Should SMBs leverage a Learning Management System?

SMBs, MSPs and vCISO’s don’t always have large budgets to educate their users and clients forcing them out of instructor led classrooms or in-person education to more affordable online solutions. Luckily for these companies LMS solutions are affordable, effective, and in a pandemic, 100% appropriate for training purposes.
 
Some of you might wonder whether you need to do awareness training or not. The reality is that our education system is not teach cybersecurity skills to our students. When those students graduate, even from ivy league colleges, they are ill equipped to defend our businesses from attack.  This is why cybersecurity experts unanimously believe that improving cybersecurity awareness within your organization can significantly reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of a breach.  
 
LMS solutions are far more affordable than the alternative – an expensive breach that causes you down-time, brand and reputation damage, and possibly lawsuits by clients or people who’s private sensitive data was stolen.  LMS’s, like CyberHoot, offer a large number of resources and tools you can utilize for cybersecurity training, in addition to trainings on other products too.  For example, CyberHoot has over 650 videos covering not only cybersecurity basics, but also popular product training on software such as Microsoft Excel, Word, Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive.  Other products included in CyberHoot training programs are QuickBooks, SalesForce, ADP, 1Password, and LastPass.
 
The CyberHoot LMS has a powerful policy governance module (with 25+ templates), allowing administrators to simply edit existing templates and begin to govern employees with a robust set of governance processes and policies.  Users are also managed by CyberHoot’s LMS when asked to read, follow, and electronically sign off on policies and processes governing their behaviors at your company.
 
Another benefit to CyberHoot’s LMS is its Phish Testing module which allows administrators to test and report on users in need of further education on the topic.
 
LMS solutions aren’t limited to just learning.  Advanced LMS’s, like CyberHoot, build so many more cybersecurity features into them. Check out CyberHoot today for a view into the world of cybersecurity LMS services!
