Frequently Asked Questions
NINJIO uses animation instead of live-action content. The animation is more effective than live-action when illustrating in-content teachable moments, due to the animation's ability to be immersive when pulling out specific threats that end-users need to be made aware of. NINJIO purposely uses drama instead of comedy because getting hacked or scammed is no laughing matter. As an extreme example, you would not use comedy in active-shooter training videos as it is a very serious topic, as is cybersecurity for your organization. Also, comedy does not cross cultures. For example, what is funny in the U.S. is likely not funny in Latin America and vice-versa. The research that NINJIO has independently conducted on neuroscience has proven that microlearning through storytelling as a tool to change viewers' security awareness behaviors over time is the most effective way to create behavioral change in your organization, making your employees great cyber citizens.
