IT Governance launches Security Awareness Programme to help organisations raise staff awareness of cyber security threats

05/09/2017

IT Governance, the leading provider of information security and data protection solutions, is launching its new Security Awareness Programme to help organisations raise awareness of cyber security and data protection threats among their employees.
 
IT Governance’s Security Awareness Programme uses a learning-needs assessment to inform the deployment of a bespoke programme supported by a range of awareness interventions delivered over different media, channels and formats to ensure it meets the organisation’s needs.
 
Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “The Security Awareness Programme is designed to equip organisations with a detailed needs analysis to identify awareness challenges, training requirements and knowledge gaps. Despite an increase in staff awareness of cyber security, recent research shows that employees are one of the biggest threats to an organisation’s information and data assets.”
 
Created by learning and development experts, the awareness programme uses a learning-needs assessment to inform the deployment of a bespoke programme on range of topics, frameworks and management system standards such as: information security and ISO 27001, business continuity and ISO 22301, cyber security, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Network and Information Systems (NIS) Directive and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
 
The programme is designed to create a shift in organisational culture to better support business objectives, and to reduce human error and process shortfalls. It provides hands-on support from specialist consultants to customise the programme, the tools and resources to fit organisational needs and keep staff engaged, and a solution to address behaviours, ideas and changes that lead to transformative results.
 
IT Governance’s SecurityAwareness Programme combines various awareness tools and resources such as:

  • Impactful campaign launch to communicate objectives and initiate an awareness programme.
  • Pledge to action to encourage knowledge transfer, awareness campaign posters and email signatures to increase campaign awareness among employees, and to provide clients and external parties with evidence that the organisation is committed to its objectives.
  • Awareness programme pocket guide to provide employees with an introduction to cyber security, IT governance, compliance or relevant management system standards.
  • E-learning courses to reinforce the importance of compliance to achieve cyber resilience.

The programme is essential for tangible and lasting organisation-wide awareness and compliance with the GDPR, NIS Directive, and management systems such as ISO 27001 (the best-practice standard for information security management) and ISO 22301 (the international business continuity management standard).
