Play it SECURE: Cybersecurity and GDPR courses

Data protection and cybersecurity are hot topics. These are probably also high on the agenda in your company. It is a complex topic and a decent cyber security course is hard to find. Fortunately, simulations for GDPR training offer an alternative that motivates and works:

GDPR and data protection taught in a fun and interactive way

You probably noticed it yourself: not everyone is equally interested in topics such as GDPR and cyber security. They are usually taught in dry e-learning modules with lots of text. Moreover, the content is quickly forgotten and/or is not translated to real life. Retaining the attention of your colleagues during an internal course is key to avoiding fines in the future. Play It prefers a different approach.

Instead of firing theory at your audience in a one-way stream, we teach the different rules in a highly interactive and visual method, based on practical situations drawn from real life. The course takes the form of a visually appealing simulation that all employees get access to.

A complete compliance course

Cybersecurity is a broad term. You must take many factors into account to fully integrate data protection into the mindset of your team. With our learning games, you tackle specific challenges one by one. Play It Secure has modules on:

  • GDPR
  • phishing
  • passwords
  • e-crime
  • removable media
  • etc.

Interactive concept for a complex subject

Dry and complicated theory on data protection is hard to remember. By providing interactive cybersecurity training to your employees, you focus attention on GDPR within the values of your company and team. The players virtually experience practical, real-life situations. Want to bet that a compliance course has never gone so smoothly?

A new mindset with minimal effort

Processing personal data correctly should really be woven into the DNA of your team. Play It Secure simulation games do exactly that. They create awareness… and maintain it!

How it works

  • Avoid mistakes and associated fines due to a lack of knowledge among your colleagues.
  • Avoid organizational and logistical nightmares: all employees will always have access to a single practical platform.
  • Achieve optimal motivation among participants with an informal approach and practical examples.
  • Obtain a useful overview and proof when employees have received certain information.
  • Create a continuous stream of information instead of a one-off learning moment. Spread the information across several moments throughout the year to create a high awareness level in your team.
