Reduce your security risk exposure with information security staff awareness training

Information security is critical in the current business environment. No matter how many security products are implemented, the information in an organisation is not completely secure unless the employees are trained in security awareness policies and procedures.

The aim of this course is to reduce the likelihood of human error by familiarising non-technical staff with security awareness policies and procedures. It ensures that information assets are better protected, and increases customer and employee confidence in the organisation.



E-learning is a quick, affordable and effective means of delivering training to multiple learners:

  • Non-technical: uses a plain English approach
  • Provides systematic, consistent and repeatable training across multiple learners
  • No travelling or other course attendance costs, as learners study from the desktop and in their spare time
  • Systematic tracking and assessment of learners’ progress and achievements
  • Web-delivered, so that you have no additional technology or integration costs or challenges
  • Can be deployed for existing employees and as part of an induction process for new hires

Target Audience

This course is aimed at all employees who are involved in processing information, using information technology in their daily job, or using the Internet as a means of conducting business. The course content is not technical and it is not meant for system administrators.



This course recognises that information security awareness starts at home, and aims to help employees understand the organisation’s information and compliance risks, reducing the organisation’s exposure to security failures. The course not only familiarises the learners with the basics of information security, including security threats via emails, the Internet and at the workplace, but also introduces them to your policies on incident reporting and responses.

My company purchased the online information security module to assist in achieving ISO 27001 certification. The support received from IT Governance made the process of all staff completing the module smooth and speedy. The external auditors were impressed with the content of the module. I would definitely use them again! Clare McArdle, Project Manager, Achilles Information Limited
