Depending on the configuration used, the dependencies on the selected schedules differ.
Manual E-Learning Scheduling is used (Awareness Engine = OFF):
Influence on Roll-out Date: The rollout date for E-Learnings remains unaffected by the start date of phishing simulations.
E-Learnings are planned by Awareness Engine (Awareness Engine = ON):
E-Learnings are strategically planned by the Awareness Engine (AE). This planning allows for efficient distribution as coordination and good timing of training modules.
The initial and first module, titled "IT and Me" is universally rolled out to all users on the designated E-Learning start date. This foundational module serves as a starting point for user education.
Subsequent E-Learning modules are introduced only after the commencement of phishing simulations. This sequential approach ensures that users have the necessary understanding before proceeding to more advanced topics.
Phishing Simulation Timing:
The recommendation is to initiate phishing simulations approximately two weeks after the E-Learning start date. This time frame provides users with an opportunity to complete the first module, configure privacy settings in the Security Hub (SecHub), and receive internal communications about the Security Awareness Training (SAS).
