While people are crucial to the success of information technology within an organisation, there is a conservative view that the users of IT systems represent the greatest information security risk. People will always make mistakes and create security incidents. Some may be tricked and manipulated by external influences (social engineering). A few disgruntled and possibly dishonest employees may cause considerable loss and damage.
How can you mitigate these risks and ensure that the ‘human factor’ becomes a key element in maintaining the information security in your organisation?
The ITG e-Learning – Information Security Staff Awareness training course recognises that information security awareness starts at home and then aims to help employees understand the organisation’s information and compliance risks. This course not only familiarises the learners with the basics such as security threats via emails, the Internet and at the workplace, but also introduces policies on incident response and reporting.
