Restricted Intelligence - Series & Episodes

Welcome to the complete “Restricted Intelligence” Employee Awareness Campaign kit.

By using the resources in this kit, you will be able to capture your employees’ attention and deliver effective messaging to the company to inspire everyone to take responsibility for protecting your precious data. All without the assistance of bribes, intimidation, or the humiliation of pleading.

Watch in disbelief as our well-intentioned but clueless team staggers from one data debacle to another, pausing only to leave the doors unlocked on the way out and enjoy a little phishing. Wait, did we say “enjoy”? We meant “freak out about.” When you’ve got a team like this, who needs hackers? Okay, yes, the hackers need them.

Check out our Seasons and sample the Episodes:

It's a regular Monday morning. Ellie tells Chloe that she's having difficulties logging on to her computer, despite using a really hard to guess password.

But all is not what it seems...
Episode 2: Browsing (Safe Surfing)
A chain of events is revealed in flashback, as Ellie explains to Rebecca in true CSI style. Lionel was looking for an online solution to his ‘problem' but ended up on a fake site. When he downloaded the tutorial, it allowed a key-logger on to his computer, which identified his login details. That's how Gerald's crucial product presentation got leaked and why he got angry. And you wouldn't like him when he's angry...

Gerald, who's on business in Corsica, has had his bag stolen. With his wallet, phone and laptop now missing, he has had to send an email to Jack from an internet café to ask for some help.

Episode 4: The Journey (Portable Storage Devices)
Gerald and Lionel stand talking with tea in hand as they watch Chloe dart through the office frantically. She rushes over and relates that she is in a hurry and needs to get a presentation to Rebecca, but she put it on a USB key, which she can't find.

Episode 6: The Lesson (Mobile Devices)
Rebecca calls Ellie into her office. Inside, Rebecca delivers Ellie a hypothetical scenario, in which she (Rebecca) has not listened to her own advice and asks Ellie to help her put things right. After all, it wouldn't be good for office morale if the others in the office found out.
