Documenting information security awareness training essential for ISO27001-compliance audit

21/08/2012

Ely, England, 21 August 2012IT Governance Ltd, the ISO27001-compliance and cybersecurity experts, have reported that deploying information security staff awareness e-learning (also known as computer-based training) is one of the most effective methods to train staff and, obtain hard evidence for auditing and compliance purposes.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, ‘Information security staff awareness is fundamental for effective information security management and for achieving compliance with the ISO27001 standard. This requirement is clearly set in clause 8.2.2 of ISO27002, the Code of Practice for Information Security Management.’

Calder continues, ‘Deploying information security e-learning not only helps you to impart basic, and yet fundamental, training on information security, but it also enables you to easily monitor the compliance status of the organisation and see hard evidence of each employee’s level of understanding.’

The Information Security & ISO27001 Staff Awareness e-learning course has already been embraced by a number of companies from different sectors as means of meeting the ISO27001 staff awareness requirements. It is designed to increase employees’ awareness of the ISO27001 requirements and thereby reduce the organisation’s liability due to security failures.

The Information Security and ISO27001 Staff Awareness e-Learning Course can be customised to reflect your organisation’s image and internal policies. The software enables your own corporate e-learning management portal to automatically retain records of which staff have accomplished the course.

Multi-user licences can be purchased by contacting IT Governance on telephone number 0845 070 1750 or email, to servicecentre@itgovernance.co.uk.
