What are training aids?
Training aids convey complex messages and ideas in a way that allows individuals and teams to grasp them more easily.
Training aids are an excellent tool for getting general staff involved in discussing and understanding the, sometimes complex, issues affecting their work - and to do so in a low impact, low pressure, fun way.
IT Governance designs and sells training aids to help organisations teach/learn about critical IT issues including cybersecurity, information security and data protection.
ITG Smart Card Series – Inform, Teach, Grow
This series of Smart Cards are designed to cover the subject areas of Information Security, IT Service Management, Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery, CISSP, CISM, CISA, PCI DSS, Data Protection, Cloud Computing, as well as Soft Skills (leadership, management, team building, etc).
They can be used in a variety of learning environments, including formal training sessions, lunchtime sessions, either in a group (as team vs. team) or on an individual basis. They also function as a normal deck of playing cards.
The ISMS Card Game
The first to be published in this new series of training aids is the ISMS Card Game. The situations captured on one or more of the jokers will enable game players to relate their actual experience of what might not work properly.

People are your weakest link – strengthen awareness and strengthen your ISMS
This card game gives staff an opportunity to identify what might be practical solutions to the identified information security issues. The fact that this card suite is designed with ISO27001 in mind means that any organisation implementing ISO27001 will find that using this card suite greatly accelerates the speed at which staff develop their understanding of the needs and requirements of the ISMS.
These posters are designed to be used as part of a general information security education and awareness initiative inside security-conscious organisations and all organisations pursuing ISO27001 certification (which requires a staff training and awareness plan) or, Data Protection Act compliance.
These thought-provoking posters are an ideal resource an office reception, back office, server room(s) or anywhere where your staff can – and should – be reminded about information security and data protection.
