Assignment and Learner Terms and Definitions
Learner - For the purpose of using Security Awareness Training, Users are considered Learners in the HSTA environment. Learner = User = Learner
Assignment - Assignments are unique and are utilized to design training for your learners, by choosing when and how you want to launch episodes throughout the week, month, quarter, or year.
Episode - Individual videos pertaining to different Cyber Security Training topics. Episodes can be located in the Content tab in an assignment or in the Library.
Group - Groups are used to segment your Learners for training purposes. You can manage and deliver different content to each Group. For example, you can have your staff in one Group and contractors in a separate one. You can now manage separate training content, access controls, and delivery options for each Group. Groups are located under Settings > Learners > Then scroll to the bottom of the page.
Department - Are used as a tool to segment your Learners for Assignments and phishing campaigns as well as tracking, phishing, and reporting purposes.

A learner can only belong to one group at a time.
Tags - Are used as a tool to segment your Learners for Assignments and phishing campaigns as well as tracking, phishing, and reporting purposes.

Access Code - a Single-Code shared by every learner in a particular group. Learners receive this code as a part of training notification emails and enter it, along with their email address, to log into mycurricula.com to complete training. This is the default authentication setting for all customer accounts.
Magic Link - is another authentication method available for managing Learner access at the group level. It is a single-use unique URL that Learners receive to access available training. Unlike an access code Magic links are unique and will expire after an hour. If your Learners cannot get to the training in that first hour, they can request a new Magic Link by clicking on the expired link and re-entering their email address. An email notification with a new Magic Link will appear in their email within seconds.
Phishing Terms and Definitions
Attempt Spreadsheet compresses all data of the phishing campaign logically in an Excel format. You can utilize the spreadsheet to create graphs, charts, or any other way you wish to present the data in a program of your choosing.
Baseline - This is a measurement of the current state of your organization's ability to defend against a phishing attack. These measurements may include how many employees open an email, click a link, enter credentials, and how long it takes for someone to fall victim to an attack. Once you have an idea of your baseline, you can compare those results to future Phishing Campaigns and see how your defenses improve over time.
Breach Time is an average of how quickly your organization was exposed by all phishing simulations.
Phishing Reports - Another essential feature that can be accessed via the Reports tab for a specific phishing campaign, you can download a summary and a spreadsheet to represent the data from a phishing attempt better.

Click Rate is the average of all employees that have clicked on your campaigns
Compromise - A compromise can originate via two different methods.
In a Click-only phishing scenario, the Learner becomes compromised after clicking on the simulated malicious link in the campaign email.
