Sacooru, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of the world’s first security awareness cloud training platform. Sacooru.com delivers innovative, industry standard security awareness training to individuals, corporations, schools, universities, govenrment agencies and non-profit organizations anywhere, on any device, at any-time.

The Sacooru.com cloud-based platform boasts ready-to-deliver highly engaging information security lessons, your own branded training portal, interactive 3D learning games, quizzes and a Certificate of Completion for every user. Within a few minutes companies can setup their private portal and train two, two thousand or even twenty thousand users or employees in minutes. The user interface is intuitive and simple to use, which is key for user adoption.

Lawrence Grant, CEO and Co-Founder of Sacooru, Inc. used his professional technology and information security expertise from the past 20 years leading successful enterprise-wide Security Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) initiatives and Information Security Technology Implementation programs to create Sacooru, Inc. As the Chief Information Security Officer at Venda Inc. and Executive Information Security Consultant at several fortune 500 companies such as Merrill Lynch, JP Morgan Chase, Chicago Mercantile Exchange Group (CME Group), Boeing Corporation, Citigroup, InvestCorp, Corning Corporation, Williams Energy, IBM , Radianz Corporation, Irving Oil, the Depository Trust Clearing Corporation among others, Mr. Grant has been on the pulse of the technologies that run today’s businesses and recognized the need to help protect individuals and companies from the threats devised by cyber criminals. “The number one weakness that cyber criminals exploit in their victims and use against corporations and their employees is the lack of awareness of knowing how to protect yourself from being hacked. The solution was Sacooru, pun intended.” says Lawrence Grant.

Currently there are numerous reports of data breaches and cyber exploits. Data theft is an enormous underground industry. Each customer record that is exposed, in any industry, whether it’s a healthcare, banking or retail company can cost the organization thousands of dollars. Larger breaches of customer records drain millions of dollars from those companies that fall victim. Sacooru.com offers an immediate solution and is a much welcomed resource to companies today.
