Introduction to Code42 Instructor


Code42 Instructor is a compilation of training resources to help you educate employees about risky behaviors and how to prevent them. Use Code42 Instructor to:

  • Promote and ensure data use policy compliance
  • Enable and empower a more risk-aware workforce
  • Reduce accidental and negligent employee data leaks

Code42 Instructor's educational content takes these different forms to help build a security-minded culture and reduce insider risk:

  • Proactive situational and responsive cybersecurity awareness lessons educate users about security risks and provide best practices on how to avoid them in short, engaging videos. Lessons are SCORM-ready and can be downloaded and plugged directly into your learning management or training system. Custom-branded training lessons are also available.
  • Posters reinforce your security training by reminding users of safe practices and potential traps when sharing, syncing, and emailing data.
  • Communication templates allow you to quickly craft direct messages, chats, or emails to notify users about security practices or request more information about user activity. You can then customize them as needed according to your organization's needs and culture.

This article introduces Code42 Instructor and describes how to access lessons and educational content or integrate Code42 Instructor into your Incydr workflows.

Integrate Code42 Instructor lessons with Incydr

If you purchased an Code42 Instructor product plan, you can send lessons directly to users from within the Code42 console in response to changes in the employee's tenure or their risky activity.

  1. Sign in to the Code42 console.
  2. Click Instructor.
    Instructor screen with lessons
    The screen provides details on how you can get started with Code42 Instructor and lists the available Situational and Responsive lessons.
    • Situational lessons provide targeted training that directly address situations relevant to the user's place in their employee tenure, such as new hire security practices, security risks for employees with elevated access, or details about what employees can take with them when they leave your company. These lessons partner well with Incydr watchlists that group similar employees together for additional monitoring.
    • Responsive lessons allow you to respond directly to a user's risky activity like unsafe iCloud sharing, uploads to cloud storage services that your organization doesn't allow, or attachments sent to personal email addresses. These lessons pair with alert notifications generated by that risky activity.
  3. If needed, click View details  to review a specific lesson's details. From here, you can update lesson video URLs or customize the lesson message text.
  4. Send Instructor lessons to users to provide additional training for changes in their position or in response to their risky activity.
    • Manually: Use the Actions menu when it appears in Incydr to manually send lessons to directly to users in response to tenure changes or alert notifications.
    • Automatically: Create alert rules that automatically send lessons to users in response to risky activity that has triggered an alert rule.
  5. Click Automation settings to limit the frequency with which the same lesson is sent to a user.
