We’ve launched version 2 of our Jumpstart Core Security Platform.

We have spent a lot of time with our customers, trying to understand their needs, frustrations and security goals. The result has been what we are proud to call Core v2 - but not too proud, as we can always improve! This is a major release that includes a ton of new features, a new interface as well as has helped us define our product roadmap for the next 12 months.

What’s new in v2?

Interface Design

We’ve re-imagine the user interface, after speaking with customers, prospects and industry specialists. Our core focus was to ensure that simplicity, clarity and efficacy were maintained so that our customers can access the information they want quickly, yet comprehensively.

Action Centre

Action Centre combines the 3 tenets of our Cybersecurity Success Program, ensuring our customers get the best possible insights and advice in an easy to consume manner.

Action Items

Action Items are tasks that you (or your nominated staff/IT member) need to complete to build up cybersecurity cadence in your business. These are generated from two sources:

  1. Your cybersecurity assessment

  2. Security Check-in meetings

Each Action Item includes a summary, details on how to complete it. You can choose to either mark it as completed, or request for assistance. If you request assistance, one of our team members will be alerted and will contact you to help out.

Action Reports

As part of your Jumpstart Core subscription, you will be receiving periodic reports that will cover:

  • If you or your staff’s credentials have been compromised in anyway

  • If your website has any vulnerabilities that could be exploited to impact it in a negative way

  • If there are fake social media pages or phishing sites copying your brand

  • How susceptible your staff are to phishing threats (by way of simulated test emails we will send)

All of these reports will be added for your review. Like Action Items, if you run in to any issues, “Request a Review” and one of our team members will be alerted and will contact you to help out.

Security Check-ins

The cornerstone of our Core service is the ability to have a trusted cyber advisor available to assist you. You can schedule a security check-in at your convenience using our interactive meeting booking tool. All Check-ins will result in meeting minutes being added to your Action Centre, along with any Action Items that you need to complete.

Security Academy

Security Academy is now an interactive module which dynamically assigns content to your staff

We’ve always focused on making security education easy. In the new version of our Security Academy, we now allow you to automatically assign your staff to all the courses that we have in our catalogue. All you need to do is add your staff and Jumpstart Core will automatically assign and track courses to them. Staff will get automatic reminders until they have completed the courses, so you don’t have to constantly chase them.

Policy Centre

The Policy Centre is your single repository of all company policies, even non-cybersecurity ones, allowing you to track completions and acknowledgements.

The Policy Centre is your single repository of all company policies, even non-cybersecurity ones, allowing you to track completions and acknowledgements.

One of the key learnings from our v1 was that our customers loved using Policy Centre. So we expanded on the ease of creating cybersecurity policies by introducing policy tracking. Just like Security Academy, as soon as you generated your cybersecurity policies, and have added your staff list in the system, Jumpstart Core will automatically assign and track policy acknowledgements.

This feature has been expanded to include not just the policies you generate on the Jumpstart Core platform, but also any existing policies that you may have. All you have to do is upload a PDF of your existing policies (for example, a HR policy), and Jumpstart Core will automatically assign and track policy completions for you.

Company Portals

Company Portals allows you to instantly create and and host a dedicated company cybersecurity page with your security awareness courses and policies

So with Security Academy and Policy Centre automatically assigning and tracking user completions, how is that managed? We created the instant Company Portals feature to address that. As soon as you add your company staff, Jumpstart Core will create a dedicated company cybersecurity page with all of your assigned policies and courses and notify your staff. You do not need to create any new accounts for your staff as the system will automatically do that for you.

All your staff have to do is enter their email address, and the system will automatically generate a one-time login code for them.

Once they have logged in to their company portal, they can easily see all of their assigned policies and courses in one place.
