IT Governance urges organizations to upskill staff to combat cyber crime in response to this week’s NCSAM theme

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, October 14, 2016 / -- IT Governance, the leading provider of cyber security expertise and solutions, is urging organizations to recognize and combat cyber crime by upskilling staff. This comes as a response to this week’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) theme, which focuses on recognizing and combating cyber crime.

Alan Calder, the founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “This week, in response to the National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), we encourage organizations to recognize the existing cyber threats and take action against them by educating their staff. Phishing attacks are rife and staff are the key to an organization’s defense. By helping staff understand how phishing campaigns work and how to distinguish them from legitimate emails, your organization will dramatically reduce the risk of becoming a victim.”

Packed with real-life examples, best practices, and engaging trivia, IT Governance’s Phishing Staff Awareness course helps organizations take action against the increasing threat of phishing attacks by educating employees to be alert, vigilant and secure.

The e-learning course alerts employees about the risks of clicking on links that can harm the organization, reduces the risks of cyber attacks due to social media tricks and scams, educates employees on the risks of harmful links and attachments, and equips employees with the know-how to identify a phishing scam and avoid falling for it.

As certain cybersecurity jobs in the United States require an ISO 27001 qualification, IT Governance encourages individuals interested in pursuing a career in information security to get started with the ISO 27001 Foundation and Lead Implementer Online courses.

Developed by ISO 27001 experts, the ISO 27001 Certified ISMS Foundation online training course uses a combination of formal training, practical exercises and relevant case studies to help individuals identify the risk associated with cyber crime, understand the elements of implementation including risk assessment and Annex A controls, and the benefits of ISO 27001 certification.

In addition, the ISO 27001 Certified ISMS Lead Implementer Online course, which is specifically aimed at delegates in the United States, equips delegates with the practical skills and knowledge to lead an ISO/IEC 27001 ISMS implementation project and help organizations mitigate the risk of cyber crime.
