Why is Information Security training important?
Information Security refers to a set of strategies for managing, detecting, and preventing unauthorised access or use of digital or non-digital information. The term covers a broad range of training, processes, programmes and management systems that all share a common objective: keeping information safe and handling information compliantly.
Information security training is a vital part of the day-to-day running of any organisation. This is because threats to sensitive and private information come in many different forms, and there are numerous regulations and best practices to follow depending on the type of information you would like to keep safe and where and how it is stored.
What are Information Security threats?
Information security threats are constantly evolving along with the technology we use to access and store information in the workplace. So many organisations rely heavily on the internet and smart devices to quickly share information, but without proper security measures and back-up plans in place, companies stand to lose millions in the event of a breach or internet outage. Threats to information security include the following (although this list is not exhaustive):
- Insecure passwords
- Phishing attacks
- Trojan infections
- Distributed Denial of Service (DDos)
- Browser hijacking
- Data protection breaches
