The Importance of Information and Cyber Security Training:

Keeping business information secure is everyone’s responsibility at work. Employees must be aware of the physical risks facing them at work which can compromise business information and put them at risk of unauthorised access. Raising awareness on the physical risks to information security is critical to ensuring employees are trained to recognise the risks and take the corrective measures to prevent breach of information.


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

Physical security risks involve breaches to business information through unauthorised access in the workplace. Some examples of these include visitors gaining access to business premises through tailgating, unaccounted visitors, stolen ID and the theft of documents from the office. Without appropriate security measures in place, businesses can be become vulnerable to physical threats to information security.

Examples of physical information include business information stored away in filing systems and desks, confidential papers that need disposing off. Physical business information can also be compromised from unattended workstations, with unlocked computer systems and misplaced ID badges and access FOBs. All of these business assets need to be secured to ensure that physical business information is safe from unauthorised access.

By training staff to be vigilant in physical risks to information security and implementing a compliance culture, you are protecting your organisation from future attacks. Educating employees on the physical risks such as hidden dangers within workstations, printing stations and filing cabinets means that the training will produce a workforce that has the knowledge to be able to spot threats when they appear and respond effectively.
