generating a query to the library of cybersecurity training actions,
in response to the query, retrieving a template for a cybersecurity training action from the library of cybersecurity training actions,
select, from the library of brand items, at least one brand item that is available for use in the template for the cybersecurity training action,
automatically modifying the retrieved template for the cybersecurity training action to include a brand or branded content that corresponds to the selected at least one brand item by including the brand or branded content in one or more elements of the template for the cybersecurity training action, and
causing the cybersecurity training action according to the modified template instantiated with the branded content to be sent to a second electronic device.
