Training Aids

What are training aids?

Training aids convey complex messages and ideas in a way that allows non-technical staff to grasp them more easily. They are an excellent tool for getting general staff involved in discussing and understanding the complex issues affecting their work – and to do so in a low impact, low pressure, fun way.

IT Governance designs and sells training aids to help organisations teach/learn about critical IT issues including cybersecurity, information security and data protection.

The ISMS Card Game

This card game gives staff an opportunity to identify what might be practical solutions to common organisational information security challenges. Designed with ISO 27001 in mind, it helps staff identify the key elements at the base of an information security management system (ISMS), and teach them how to manage the critical issues that they may face when implementing it.

Cards can be used in a variety of learning environments, including formal training sessions, lunchtime sessions, either in a group (as team vs. team) or on an individual basis. They also function as a normal deck of playing cards.
