Ataata: Security Awareness Training: Identifying, Quantifying and Reducing Employee Risk
Michael P. Madon, CEO
Security professionals need an effective way to assign and reduce risk. It’s difficult to navigate through the sea of noise surrounding an employee’s digital footprint when false positives abound. So, when you consider that 95percent of all security breaches involve human error, it becomes increasingly critical that companies have the ability to identify real problem areas and ultimately minimize that risk through better training.
Traditional risk awareness training does little to combat the suspect judgment and poor security decisions that cost company’s time and money. Uninformed and disengaged employees make careless security mistakes, which mean an organization’s greatest security risk works in-house. Ataata’s platform empowers employees to reduce that risk.
Ataata understands that the security of an entire organization depends on the ability to reduce human error within its firewall. The company’s mission is to deliver engaging, relatable content to employees and to measure training effectiveness by converting behavioral observations into actionable risk metrics for security professionals.
Informed and engaged employees, who understand why their actions matter, make better security decisions
“We are building Ataata on the premise that informed and engaged employees, who understand why their actions matter, will ultimately make better security decisions,” said Michael Madon, CEO of Ataata.
Insightful and impactful content, coupled with real-time risk scoring, is changing the way Ataata’s customers think about cyber risk and helping them reduce the costs associated with human error. Ataata has quickly become a critical pillar of its clients’ security programs across a wide swath of industries, company sizes, and marquee brands.
Ataata’s intuitive dashboard scores risk, tracks employees' attitudes about security, monitors training performance and shows companies how their workforce stacks up against others in their industry. No other companies in the security space are doing that.
