Information security staff awareness e-learning course impresses external auditors

/ IT Governance, the single-source provider of information security products and services, has reported a growing interest in its security awareness and compliance e-learning courses, as well as a high level of customer satisfaction.

A client who recently bought the Information Security Staff Awareness e-learning course commented:

“My company purchased the online information security module to assist in achieving ISO 27001 certification. The support received from IT Governance made the process of all staff completing the module smooth and speedy. The external auditors were impressed with the content of the module. I would definitely use them again!”

With growing concerns about staff-related security and data breaches as demonstrated by the 2013 ISMS survey, staff awareness training is a ‘must’ for any organisation. E-learning is the most sophisticated method to deliver security awareness training. It can be easily combined with other awareness tools such as security awareness posters, e-mail updates from the IT team on most recent phishing and pharming attacks and animated messaging to deliver a full awareness programme.

Another client of IT Governance described the benefits of using the Information Security & ISO27001 Staff Awareness e-learning course as:

“The course has really helped our team to get an overview of information security. It covers all the basics well and has led into the wider ISO 27001 policies we have produced. The speed to have the course setup and users created was incredible, and a big help in our tight timescales. It has served the purpose we purchased it for excellently and we would like to keep using it with all new starters and as a refresher course later on.”

With classroom training too expensive and time-consuming for many SMEs, the Information Security Staff Awareness e-learning course offers a pragmatic approach to staff training whilst being cost-efficient and requires minimal administration. It also provides employers with tools to monitor staff progress and hard evidence that training has actually taken place. More information is available at

Companies that are implementing an information security management system to comply with the ISO 27001 standard will benefit considerably from deploying the Information Security & ISO27001 Staff Awareness e-learning course.
