Popcorn Training has earned the prestigious Gold Winner status in the Golden Bridge Awards® in the Winner Category – Information Technology and Security Innovations: Training and Education – Best Product or Service of the Year for their Security Awareness Series “Cyber Heroes”.
“It’s an honour to be named a winner by Golden Bridge Awards for this esteemed industry and peer recognition award,” said Anna Collard. “These awards are a testament to Popcorn Training’s commitment to growing the business on a global scale, by making Cyber Security Awareness entertaining and memorable.”
‘Cyber Heroes’ is a training programme based on live action movie dramatisation of certain cyber security situations that occur in the working environment with a touch of humour. ‘Cyber Heroes’ takes viewers on a journey with reformed cyber criminal Norm O’crime, who has left his dark past behind and teaches users how to be cyber savvy. We see his potential victims in attack scenarios and how their responses either turn them into cyber victims or cyber heroes. Using actors such as Aidan Whytock, who starred in the hugely popular US series ‘Homelands’, was a worthwhile investment in talent and improved audience engagement and recall.
The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world’s best in organisational performance, innovations, products and services, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, innovations, best deployments, product management, public relations, marketing, corporate communications, international business, and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry in the world.
