Often times, the last line of defense against threats such as malicious code, disgruntled employees, and malicious third parties, are humans. Your employees need to be educated on your organization’s key security protocols, and best practices. An Information Security Education and Awareness Program (ISEAP) can provide an effective accountability mechanism by equipping your personnel with the tools and knowledge required to maintain your enterprise’s security framework.
Information security awareness, education and training is one of the most critical aspects of any organization’s information security strategy and supporting security operations. A comprehensive ISEAP should include content that can be easily understood by the entire organization. Learning and training skills, graphics, media information and interactive content should also be included.
To further support IT professionals with the process of establishing and executing ISEAPs, Contego has created an approach to developing, managing and maintaining an ISEAP in “everyday business.” These cost-effective courses can be taken online and at the pace of the individual.
A role-based information security training process follows the completion of the information security awareness process. The skills that are acquired during information security training are built upon a foundation that was acquired during the information security awareness process.
