Course objective

This course aims to help employees understand the organisation’s information and compliance risks, reducing its exposure to security failures. The course familiarises learners with the basics of information security, including security threats via email and the Internet, and in the workplace, and 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
