Information Security & Data Privacy Awareness Training

Humans remain the weakest link in the chain. Some of the most complicated cyber attacks were successful because of an employee being tricked into opening an email.

The list of cyber attacks would fill multiple pages but some of the more well known cyber attacks include Sony Pictures Entertainment, Target, the US Office of Personnel, UK's TalkTalk. In all of these companies the human element was pivotal in the success of the cyber attack.

Why is Information Security Training So Important?

Security awareness training is a formal process for educating employees about computer security. Regular training is particularly necessary in organisations with high turnover rates and those that rely heavily on contract or temporary staff. Security policies should be viewed as key enablers for the organisation, not as a series of rules restricting the efficient working of your business.

The message needs to be simple and relevant to the tasks that each individual performs.

Security in Cyber space matters to everyone, young and old. Cyber crime is increasing dramatically and is affecting and hurting people and companies in their pockets.

So, Do We Still Buy Technology Products to Protect Business?

Yes is the short answer. Technology is still an important component in protecting a business in cyberspace. However, technology does not change an organisation's culture. A more effective solution to change the culture of your organisation is through information security training (also known as cyber security awareness training) The focus on the information security awareness training should be towards achieving a long term shift in the attitude of employees towards security, whilst promoting a cultural and behavioural change within an organisation.

Information security awareness training cannot be a once-a-year event and still be effective. There needs to be continuous training as well as communications and marketing involvement to keep the messages fresh in the minds of the employees.

The Information Security Training pack is designed to provide an in-depth review of cyber security topics specific to the end user.
