Organisations can reduce their cybercrime costs by nurturing information security skills

/EINPresswire.com/ IT Governance, the global leader in information security expertise, is today advising organisations to invest in improving the information security skills of their staff in order to tackle cybercrime and reduce expenditure in the long term. Through their ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Implementer Masterclass, available both in London and Manchester, the company has helped hundreds of organisations train their
employees in information security management. More information is available from www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-713-iso27001-certified-isms-lead-implementer-masterclass.aspx.
A news article in January has revealed that cybercrime costs have hit £205 million a year. This has again raised the question of whether there is sufficient information security talent to help UK businesses tackle cybercrime.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “Implementing an information security management system (ISMS) which is in line with the information security standard ISO27001 should be part of any company’s cybersecurity strategy. In order to succeed and truly protect their information assets, organisations need staff with the skills and knowledge to effectively manage the project.”
Calder continues, “In difficult economic times, investing in professional staff training is one area that can help organisations improve their operations and competitiveness. By empowering staff with skills organisations can manage risk better and survive the unexpected.”
IT Governance is dedicated to helping organisations of any type and size train their staff, by offering fully accredited classroom, or in-house-based courses that lead to industry recognised qualification.
