    Frequently Asked Questions

    Are learners assessed at the end of each ulearn module?

    Users must answer a series of multiple choice questions at the end of each module. They are randomised, offering no chance of pre-emptively guessing the test if someone has to take it again, or if their colleagues do it first.

    Can I filter results by department too?

    You certainly can – it’s one of the main filtering options we present, again backed with comparative data across sub-teams if applicable.

    Can regular firewalls achieve IoT security?

    No, an IoT-enabled device has many digital access points, some of which even the latest firewalls can’t protect against.

    Can’t I tell a phishing email at a glance?

    No – as we mentioned, these scams are very clever, and play off our responses to official-looking logos, guarantees and professional language.
