Introducing Our New Information Security Collection
Wed, 07 Oct 2020 11:55
We are excited to launch the second of our Compliance Collections for Information Security – a unique approach to keeping awareness training programmes fresh, year on year. Keep your workforce cognizant no matter where they work.
Keeping Business Information Secure
Cyberattacks continue to be a concern for many organisations. A study by Accenture indicates that the most expensive component of a cyber-attack is information loss at $5.9M. Information breaches from cyberattacks can have devastating consequences on businesses - from significant financial losses to damage to reputation and job losses.
With remote working becoming the norm, in light of the COVID19 pandemic, information security is more important than ever. Employees are now spread across different locations – be it in the office or at home. It is therefore paramount to keep your workforce aware and informed on how to keep business information secure. Awareness training is vital for educating employees on the threats facing businesses, spotting the signs of cyberattacks and mitigating the risks of breaches.
One Size Does Not Fit All
When it comes to online training programs, one size does not fit all. With this in mind, we designed our Collections to help organisations create a cost-effective bespoke training solution using our off-the-shelf products. With Collections, organisations can roll out effective learning interventions over a number of years – promoting learner engagement and knowledge retention.
New Information Security Collection
Our Information Security Collection is packed with courses in a variety of learning styles – combining immersive learning, microlearning and toolbox talks to keep learners engaged. Also included are free communications resources which can be printed out or displayed in the workplace digitally to reinforce key messaging.
With novel learning experiences and targeted messaging, our Collection can help boost engagement and retention while embedding a culture of compliance.
Apart from a complete refresh of our existing courses, our Information Security Collection includes the following new courses.
Our immersive learning courses are scenario-based and highly interactive - placing the learner at the heart of the experience and testing them on their ability to make the right decisions.
With the new immersive-learning course on Introduction to Information Security, educate members of your staff on their responsibilities in ensuring that your organisation is protected against cyberattacks and breaches. It is a highly gamified course, using multiple gamification elements and the latest techniques in high-quality 3D styling.
The new Diagnostic Assessment is a short quiz to measure the learner's understanding of information security and automatically create enrolments onto relevant microlearning courses. The assessment is useful for assessing individual training needs, offering valuable insight into common training gaps with targeted interventions tailored for each employee.
The Diagnostic Assessment requires all the microlearning courses in the collection. It is exclusively available for xAPI courses, utilising the auto-enrol functionality powered by our Astute LXP's AI engine.
In addition to our existing microlearning courses, following are the new additions to the Collection:
- Protecting Information (Digital Risks)
- Securing Mobile Devices
- Consequences of Information Leaks
- Consequences of Cyber Crime
- Handling Different Types of Data
Three new Toolbox Talks designed as blended training courses for small groups. Each Toolbox Talk includes downloadable facilitation notes.
