Curricula product overview
Curricula is a cybersecurity awareness training platform that lets employees learn how to defend themselves and their organization from cyber attacks. The software enables anyone to create, manage, track, and deliver online training in minutes.
Curricula comes with an animated world of characters to make cybersecurity training fun and enjoyable. The platform provides a full suite of products for eLearning and training episodes that cover topics on the biggest cybersecurity threats such as phishing, social engineering, business email compromise, ransomware, malware, social media, and gift card scams, featuring a fictitious five-year-old villain hacker, DeeDee. DeeDee is also used as the platform’s phishing simulator.
Curricula’s phishing training tool allows admins to ‘phish’ their employees and see who would give up credentials. DeeDee either rewards them for catching her in the act or sends employees to take additional training.
The platform includes an LMS content authoring tool that lets admins design custom training content for employees onboarding or any HR training. Its content library offers downloads such as posters and digital signage to keep security awareness top-of-mind for employees.
Pros of Curricula
- Curricula is a fun employee training platform that uses storytelling to gamify the learning experience. Its behavioral science-based approach to learning keeps employees engaged with heroes, villains, and stories that are distributed in assignments throughout the year. The result is a more effective program that goes beyond checking the box for compliance.
- It drives the achievement of SOC 2 compliance in a self-serve learning platform. Content includes privacy, PCI, GDPR, and passwords.
Cons of Curricula
- The platform doesn’t provide automatic new hire onboarding learning paths, however admins can create “Assignments” for new employees which sync with identity management providers.
- The platform does not offer customizable phishing templates, but Curricula plans on adding this feature in the future.
