Course overview

The Information Security and Cyber Security Staff Awareness E-Learning Course

Reduce your information and cyber security risk with staff awareness training.

For your organisation to function seamlessly, staff need to be aware of the potential pitfalls of handling information and technology. This interactive e-learning course will improve their knowledge of information security and cyber security practices.

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.
