Staff Awareness Training

A comprehensive cyber security strategy addresses technology, processes and people. Although people are part of the equation, they are often left out because employees can be unpredictable in their behaviour and difficult to manage. Despite this, involving staff in the cyber security strategy is not impossible – they can actually make all the difference.

The best solution for all companies wishing to engage their staff with their cyber security strategy is a staff awareness programme. Using training, tools and thought-provoking activities, organisations can raise staff awareness of the daily cyber risks they face, and suggest actions and procedures to adopt to minimise such risks.

A staff awareness programme should be an ongoing process that begins with staff induction, and continues with periodic updates throughout the year and/or whenever any staff-related security incidents occur.

When carried out effectively, a staff awareness programme:

  • Helps companies identify potential security problems
  • Helps staff understand the consequences of poor information security and cyber security
  • Ensures procedures are followed consistently
  • Ensures staff are fully aware of corporate compliance requirements for security regulations and frameworks such as the GDPR, the PCI DSS, ISO 27001, HIPAA and the GLBA.

Bespoke security awareness programme

Information and cyber security are particularly at risk from staff error. Your employees are likely to be handling data on a daily basis and a simple mistake could result in serious financial and reputational damage.

Through a detailed assessment of your organisation’s needs and culture, we can design a bespoke security awareness programme that includes custom awareness interventions, including our flagship products such as e-learning, posters, newsletters and pocket guides. Staff awareness programmes need serious thought to make sure all the bases are covered, which our consultants are experienced in delivering.
