Information Security Awareness Compliance Training

Header image

This important Information Security Awareness online training course aims to protect your organisation by arming your staff with a thorough awareness of a wide range of potential risks when dealing with commercial information and technology. With the world’s current reliance on rapidly expanding technologies that rely increasingly on sharing information around the globe, organisations have never been more at risk from information security breaches.

The dangers of malicious “hackers” and software viruses are widely publicised, but your organisation’s greatest potential security threat may come from the innocent carelessness or unknowing action of your own well-meaning staff. With this training you can reduce that risk!
