How to create and send Rapid Awareness Alerts

Sofie Rapid Awareness helps you to quickly inform the entire company about relevant attacks, vulnerabilities, or other urgent cyber security news. The Alerts are created in the SoSafe Manager and sent via the MS Teams bot Sofie, so that the employees will receive the alert as a direct message. Learn in this article how to create engaging alerts your employees will engage with. Your Customer Success representative will set up Rapid Awareness in the Manager for you. Find the feature in the SoSafe Manager > Sofie Rapid Awareness.
