Terranova Security releases accessibility features in security awareness training library
By CS StaffNews Retail Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) Terranova Security
Terranova Security announced a new set of accessibility features across its entire library of security awareness training content.
To coincide with Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), these measures deliver on Terranova Security’s commitment to ensure everyone can have access to the knowledge they need to keep themselves, their organizations, and sensitive information safe.
“Creating an inclusive security awareness training experience has always been a major priority for us,” said Lise Lapointe, Author and CEO of Terranova Security. “By offering courses in as many formats as we do, in addition to our in-platform support for an inclusive learning experience, we’re dedicated to making the training process as easy and enjoyable as possible for our users.”
“All organizations have an obligation to ensure that their security awareness training program is as inclusive as possible,” added Jamal Elachqar, CTO of Terranova Security. “We consider it our responsibility to support diversity and inclusion through security awareness training that allows everyone to acquire the knowledge and tools they need to be cyber heroes in both their personal and professional lives.”
A lot of online content still excludes many users every day, Terranova’s research suggests. 80 per cent of online content is available in only one of 10 languages: English, Chinese, Spanish, Japanese, Arabic, Portuguese, German, French, Russian, and Korean. Of those, less than half of the world’s population speaks one of those languages as their preferred language.
In terms of WCAG 2.1 compliance, GAAD research found that 98.1 per cent of home pages have at least one failure, while the average website home page contains 60.9 accessibility errors.
The accessible versions of Terranova Security’s security awareness training course material are now available to new and existing customers.
