Despite the best efforts of organizations worldwide – even those that provide annual information awareness training – cyber crime is rising rapidly largely because human error continues to be the biggest threat to information security. Many well-meaning employees make poor security decisions that can result in data breaches, network intrusions and also financial loss. Annual information awareness training is a cornerstone of adopting a security mindset that carries through daily work routines – from email, to telephone interactions to physical security. Yet, the busy schedules and fast pace of daily work life can certainly hinder the delivery of effective training.
Information Security Training for Employees
Information security training for employees teaches users about the importance of personal responsibility, their role in keeping the organization safe and also the consequences of lax behavior. Learners are given a solid overview of types of threats, how to recognize them and how to take preventive measures. The Security Awareness Essentials Challenge course educates and engages users by describing real-life security challenges and then asking them to choose the best course of action for each challenge.
The course takes less than 30 minutes and can be viewed across multiple devices to accommodate employees’ schedules and locations. The interactive nature of this Human Firewall 2.0 foundation block ensures that learners retain the information, and then the post-assessment provides proof that the concepts have taken hold.
All training from Global Learning Systems complies with standards set by government and regulatory bodies. Employers who must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, or those who wish to make security awareness training available to differently-abled employees can choose a Section 508-compliant version of the course.
