The benefits of e-learning

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

  • Provides systematic, consistent and repeatable training across multiple learners, ensuring high information-retention rates and consistent training for all staff.
  • Save time and money by reducing travelling and course attendance costs, and using our web-delivered training – no software integration costs here.
  • Can be deployed for existing employees and as part of an induction process for new hires to ensure organisation-wide coverage.
  • The multi-user and multi-year licence options make our courses cost-effective.

All of our e-learning and distance learning customers that use our Learning Management System (LMS) benefit from our free monthly security bulletin. Each month, a group of our information security experts compile information on the latest threats into a handy newsletter, which is hosted on our LMS for all of our users to access. The PDF is downloadable and shareable, and forms part of the ongoing commitment we have to helping our customers become truly cyber secure.

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
