Description

Reduce your security risk exposure with information security staff awareness training 

Information security is critical in the current business environment. No matter how many security products are implemented, the information in an organisation is not completely secure unless its employees are trained in security awareness policies and procedures. 

The aim of this course is to reduce the likelihood of human error by familiarising non-technical staff with security awareness policies and procedures. It ensures that information assets are better protected, and increases customer and employee confidence in the organisation. 


Benefits

E-learning is a quick, affordable and effective means of delivering training to multiple learners.

  • Provides systematic, consistent and repeatable training. 
  • No travelling or other course attendance costs, as learners study from their desk and in their spare time. 
  • Web-delivered, so there are no additional technology or integration costs or challenges. 
  • Can be deployed for existing employees and as part of an induction process for new starters. 

 

Target audience

This course is aimed at all employees who are involved in processing information, use information technology in their daily job or use the Internet as a means of conducting business. The course content is not technical and it is not meant for system administrators. 

 

Objectives

This course recognises that information security awareness starts at home, and aims to help employees understand the organisation’s information and compliance risks, reducing its exposure to security failures. The course not only familiarises learners with the basics of information security, including security threats via email, the Internet and in the workplace, but also introduces them to your policies on incident reporting and responses.
