IT Governance launches updated and improved Phishing Staff Awareness e-learning course


IT Governance, the leading cyber security services provider, is pleased to announce the launch of its newly updated and improved Phishing Staff Awareness e-learning course to help businesses raise awareness of the dangers of phishing-based cyber attacks.
Cyber criminals are well known for taking advantage of an organisation’s weakest link – its employees. By tricking the uninformed using clever phishing tactics, cyber criminals can quickly gain access to an organisation’s systems and networks, install malware and steal personal information.
As cyber crime continues to grow, IT Governance is encouraging organisations to reduce their cyber risk exposure by turning their employees into their strongest line of defence.
Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, explains: “Employees often don’t understand the dangers of clicking on malicious links or providing their details online. Hackers can exploit this obvious vulnerability and cause a lot of damage. This course has been carefully designed to explain the multitude of phishing tactics employed by criminals to deceive and defraud individuals and organisations, which will empower users to recognise these tricks and avoid exposing your organisation to risks.”
IT Governance’s latest Phishing Staff Awareness course offers an updated look and feel, advanced user interaction, additional information on social media phishing, practical applications of phishing concepts, tips on avoiding phishing scams, and more. The course also features an all-new assessment comprising a bank of 30 questions.
The Phishing Staff Awareness course is designed to help organisations take action against the increasing threat of targeted phishing attacks by educating employees to be alert, vigilant and secure. The course illustrates concepts in simple terms, and reveals the different tactics commonly employed in phishing campaigns without unnecessary technical jargon.
