New Cybersecurity World Record Set
A new Guinness World Record in cybersecurity training has been set by a cloud-based identity and access management (IAM) provider, a security awareness training platform, and a PR firm.
Security expert and global data protection officer at OneLogin, Niamh Muldoon, and Javvad Malik, lead security awareness advocate at KnowBe4, presented the record-breaking lesson about ransomware prevention.
"Niamh and Javvad provided their expertise on ransomware prevention and table-top exercises before opening the session for Q&A with the viewers," said Eskenzi PR's Paula Brici.
She added: "The objective of the training was to bridge the gap between security professionals and the rest of the workforce."
The hour-long lesson was hosted and recorded via Zoom and made accessible to the public via YouTube Live for 23 hours. Guinness World Records stipulated that a minimum of 1,500 views were needed at the end of the 24 hours for a new record to be officially recorded.
