New Instructor lesson actions in Alert rules

New optional "Educate users" actions have been added into the alert rule builder. If you have an Incydr product plan that includes Code42 Instructor, these new options allow you to build rules that automatically email Instructor lessons to users in response to their risky activity.

Announcing Code42 Instructor

September 14, 2021

Released today, our new Code42 Instructor product provides bite-sized employee education that security teams can share with users to reduce insider risk. Lessons include proactive, situational, and responsive education content.

With Code42 Instructor, security teams can:

  • Promote and ensure data use policy compliance
  • Enable and empower a more risk-aware workforce
  • Reduce accidental and negligent employee data leaks
  • Measure, report, and improve organization-wide insider risk posture

If you're adding insider risk education to an existing security awareness solution, you can add Code42 Instructor lessons to your existing learning management system. Or, if you're building a standalone insider risk education program, you can use Code42 Instructor lessons in your incident response process to assign education based on user activity. 

You can use Code42 Instructor on its own, or with Incydr for a more complete insider risk solution. If you also use Incydr, you can access Code42 Instructor from the Code42 console.
