Latest ReadyTraining™ course helps employees understand the risks surrounding data security, ways to prevent security breaches at multiple levels The Network, Inc., a leading provider of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced the release of its newest ReadyTraining™ eLearning course entitled “Information Security: Safeguarding Our Business,” which helps companies train and engage their workforce on how to protect and secure data.
The new employee-focused Information Security course, developed in partnership with experts in the security industry, emphasizes that an organization’s best defense against internal and external security breaches is not technology alone, but fostering a culture of security among employees where actions taken to protect vital information are automatic and intuitive.
Lin continued, “With the increase in socially-engineered threats, information security is more than just having technical controls to keep unauthorized users out. All employees and business partners that access vital systems need to be aware of the various ways, including social media, that others are attempting to access their systems for ill-gotten gains.”
The release of the new ReadyTraining Information Security course follows on the heels of National Cyber Security Awareness Month in October, an awareness campaign sponsored by the US Department of Homeland Security in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC).
