Hiscox Risk Academy CyberClear includes six learning pathways covering topics as wide-ranging as social engineering and payment diversion fraud to GDPR regulations and fraud awareness. Four pathways are for all users and two are created just for managers. Additional resource material is also provided.

Training at regular intervals to reinforce key messages
