How to enable JIT (Just In Time) training

Enabling Just In Time training

JIT training is real-time reinforcement configured to drive positive behavioural changes for monitored employee security risks. Unlike monthly or annual education courses, JIT education and notifications are delivered whilst there is still a conscious link in the employee's mind with the action they have just performed and the action that is being flagged to them.

As an example, when your employee clicks on a simulated phishing scenario they will be instantly directed to complete a short JIT Training module around email phishing.

Showing a very short piece of interactive training when employees click on a simulated phish is an extremely effective way to reduce phishing susceptibility and increase reporting rates. 

Even if employees don't complete the JIT training, giving them a pop up while the conscious and potentially emotive link is still fresh in their mind gives them an extra impetus toward improving their behavioural risk posture.  

Good to know

  • There are two kinds of phishing scenarios;
    A link that they click that will lead to a dead page - In this case, JIT would pop up as soon as they click the link
    A link that they click, that then takes them to a page to enter their credentials - In this case, JIT would only trigger once they enter the credentials. If a user opens the credentials page, then closes it, this would only record a click, but not trigger any JIT training
    If you see an employee that has clicked on the link, but no JIT has triggered, this means that they landed on a credentials page, and closed the tab/didn't enter their credentials.
  • JIT training is not mandatory and will not be visible in users security centre as assigned training
  • If you close the window with the JIT training, you will not be able to access it again
  • JIT training is quick, bitesize content. It should only take around five minutes to complete
