LEAWOOD, Kan., Dec. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RiskAnalytics, a leading provider of security solutions for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs), today announced system-wide dashboard enhancements to its RiskTool risk management system to help IT administrators effectively track, identify, report and manage employee cyber security awareness training. The new dashboards span across four key areas within RiskTool, including general navigation, my dashboard, my tasks dashboard and materials dashboard.

RiskTool is a unified, role-based platform for security professionals, compliance officers and HR/training specialists. It is used by thousands of SMBs across the globe to address the human element of cybersecurity. By integrating performance, policy compliance and security training into a single, easy to use platform, RiskAnalytics reduces the gap between policy development and adherence. With RiskTool, policies are easily deployed and audited for compliance and bite-sized, consumable content inline with policies is delivered efficiently and effectively.

"In the current cyber security landscape, small and medium-sized businesses are forced to stretch their budgets and they often overlook cyber security awareness training or implement ineffective training programs," said Jeff Stull, CEO of RiskAnalytics. "Human error and spear-phishing emails are continually listed among the top causes for large-scale data breaches year after year. Organizations need to take a bite-sized approach to training that is more likely to reach and resonate with employees. With our new dashboard enhancements, organizations can effectively track, identify, report and manage cyber security awareness training for employees."

RiskTool includes four major updates in its enhanced offering:

  • General Navigation: The updated General Navigation Dashboard now features separate navigation elements for policies, inspection checklists and best practice assessments, accented with new icons. The ease of navigation provides quick and easy reporting for IT administrators.
  • My Dashboard: With My Dashboard, administrators and managers can quickly obtain a glimpse of where the organization stands in relation to the tasks that have been assigned to their users. With a single click, users who have overdue tasks or have failed a task can be identified. The reporting on the dashboard is based on users' overall task status.
  • My Tasks Dashboard: The new My Tasks listing dashboard integrates training, policy, inspection checklists and best practice assessments with the landing page and general dashboard. Administrative users can now manage all learning tasks from one central location.
  • Materials Dashboard: The new materials dashboard allows IT administrators to quickly and easily assign training, policy, inspection checklists and best practice assessments geared toward each individual employee.
