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 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 incidents occur.

An effective staff awareness programme:

  • Helps companies identify potential problems;
  • Helps staff understand the consequences of their actions;
  • Makes sure procedures are followed consistently; and
  • Makes sure 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.

Awareness solutions

IT Governance has an extensive suite of tools and training materials to help you set up your awareness programme:

  • Training aids – engaging card games and posters to encourage staff to reflect on information security and cyber security issues that affect their work.

  • Customised reading material – personalised pocket guides and books about information security with your own branding.

  • E-learning courses – comprehensive and easy-to-follow e-learning courses about information security, phishing and compliance requirements to make your staff aware of security risks and the best practices to follow, at a much lower cost than traditional classroom learning.

  • In-house training – face-to-face training at your workplace with our highly experienced trainers.

  • Security Awareness Programme – combines a customised learning needs analysis with the design, development and deployment of a bespoke awareness programme. Interventions are delivered through different media, channels and formats to ensure a better fit with your organisation’s needs, culture and values.
