Staff awareness solutions
When organisations look to initiate a compliance programme or implement a management system, the ‘people’ factor is often overlooked.
To ensure new initiatives are completely integrated, it’s imperative that staff are addressed at all stages as they can influence whether it is a success.
How to engage your staff
Using engaging training, tools and thought-provoking activities, organisations can make staff aware of the daily cyber risks they face and suggest actions and procedures to minimise such risks.
A staff awareness programme should be an ongoing process that begins at induction and is reinforced by regular updates throughout the year and/or whenever staff-related security incidents occur.
An effective staff awareness programme should:
- Help companies identify potential problems;
- Help staff understand the consequences of their actions;
- Ensure procedures are followed consistently; and
- Ensure staff are fully aware of corporate compliance requirements for regulations and frameworks such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), ISO 27001, the Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive and other cyber security requirements.
