/EINPresswire.com/ According to the Deloitte TMT Global Security Study, lack of employee awareness is a top security vulnerability. Targeted at technology, media and telecommunication (TMT) executives, this survey suggests that organisations should invest in information security training and awareness for their employees to help mitigate risks from new technologies.
Information security staff awareness e-learning is considered by far the most efficient and cost-effective method of delivering ongoing staff awareness training.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance – the information security experts, says,
“Whilst a comprehensive security awareness programme should include different elements (staff policies, regular updates from the Information Security Manager and other), deploying a web-based e-learning course is the most-effective means for achieving company-wide information security staff training. It enables you to monitor and record staff progress amongst other useful features.”
The benefits from using an e-learning course, such as the Information Security Staff Awareness e-learning course (which is designed by IT Governance), include:
• Massive cost savings compared to traditional training options
• Minimal office disruption – staff train at their desks
• Minimal administration – comprehensive reports available
• Systematic evidence that training has actually been provided
• Relevant and informative content
The IT Governance Information Security Staff Awareness e-learning course can be hosted either in the organisation’s own e-learning environment or on the provider’s servers. It can also be customised to include the company’s in-house look and feel as well as their specific policies. More information about this course is available at www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-596.aspx.
IT Governance’s e-learning solutions are favoured by organisations due to the fixed-price for multi-user licences (regardless of the number of users). For large organisations it can cost as little as £2 per licence.
IT Governance offers a full range of information security and compliance e-learning courses, including ISO27001, PCI DSS, Data Protection Act and N3 compliance awareness courses. More information is available at: www.itgovernance.co.uk/itg-elearning.aspx.
