The Importance of Information and Cyber Security Training:

For businesses, some information is open to disclosure and free to share outside the business. While some information is confidential and sensitive and only authorised for disclosure internally. Unauthorised disclosure of information can compromise business decisions, reputation and long-term outlook. Data security is therefore paramount for keeping business information secure. Training your employees on how to handle different types of data can help businesses mitigate the risk of breaches and protect business interests.


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

There are three levels of data classification: public, internal and confidential. Public information is data available in the public domain and disclosure is acceptable. Internal information is restricted within the organisation or specific teams and unauthorised disclosure is unacceptable. Confidential information is restricted to authorised personnel only and unauthorised disclosure has serious consequences.

Confidential information further divided between confidential and secret – depending on how sensitive the data is and how many people are authorised to access it. Confidential information may include business or personal data. Personal data has extra protection under data protection regulations and is almost always internal or confidential.

Business data is often confidential with access restricted strictly to authorised personnel. All employees must receive thorough training in information security awareness and best practices for handling different types of data. It is also important to limit data sharing and state availability restrictions, so that confidential information is not inadvertently breached.
