The Importance of Information Security Training:

Most businesses rely on technology to access, store and share business information. But it can also make organisations vulnerable to the threat of cyber-attacks from hackers and cybercriminals. Risks from information security breaches could lead to significant financial losses, reputational damage, penalties due to breach of regulations and costs of recovery.

A majority of information breaches are attributed to human error. Information security training is therefore vital for mitigating the risks, preventing information breaches and protecting business information. A comprehensive training program rolled out over a number of years can help organisations embed a culture of compliance, prevent costly breaches and reputational damage.


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

Some of the key areas of data protection that employees should be aware of include setting a secure password, physical and digital risks to information, using portable storage devices securely, phishing awareness, understanding social engineering, using email and the Internet securely, protecting your identity, handling different types of data, securing mobile devices, and consequences of cybercrime and information leaks.

Microlearning courses are short 5–10-minute learning vignettes focussed on key topics and designed to promote knowledge retention of key information. Microlearning courses can be rolled out in response to emerging training needs and are ideal for reinforcing messaging around key topic areas.

A Diagnostic Assessment can help measure learner competence in key topic areas and identify gaps in their knowledge. Based on the results of the assessment, a follow up, tailored program of microlearning courses is created which the learner can take.
