HHS to use video content for training

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently announced plans to create a repository of video and other content that will train various government employees in proper mobile device security practices, GovInfoSecurity reported.

According to the news source, the content plan will begin with efforts to identify the best practices for mobile security before compiling them into easily understandable and entertaining content that can be distributed through business video streaming technology.

Joy Pritts, chief privacy officer at HHS's Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, told GovInfoSecurity the goal of the content will be to distribute key information pertaining to mobile security in an accessible format.

"The good practices materials will be communicated in plain, practical and easy-to-understand language through different media formats, such as videos and quick tip sheets," Pritts told the news source.

Using video content to train and engage workers is rapidly becoming a popular tactic in the enterprise as well as government. Businesses working to develop such systems need to make sure they invest in enterprise content delivery network solutions and other similar tools that will help them overcome the network delivery-related challenges associated with video-based programs.
