CASE STUDY: Lloyds Banking Group + VIVIDA
Challenge: Lloyds Banking Group wanted to explore new ways of delivering cybersecurity awareness training.
What we did: We introduced the team to VIVIDA, a LORCA member that uses VR and immersive storytelling to deliver cyber training that resonates with people on an emotional level. After defining Lloyds Banking Group’s need, LORCA facilitated the introduction to VIVIDA and an initial demo, before working with both parties to accelerate the contracting process.
Outcome: The initial internal pilot was a success and VIVIDA won the contract with Lloyds Banking Group after the training solution got positive feedback. VIVIDA then turned its VR solution into a desktop-friendly version after the pandemic made VR headset training onsite less feasible.
