IT Governance launches social media staff awareness e-learning course

ELY, UNITED KINGDOM, May 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- IT Governance, the leading provider of cyber risk and privacy management solutions, is pleased to announce the release of its Social Media Staff Awareness Human Patch E-learning Course.

With privacy concerns constantly in the news, and social media platforms such as Facebook, Google+ and Reddit all suffering major data breaches in the UK, demand for staff training on social media use is on the rise.

The privacy risks associated with social media come in many different forms. However, the majority of attacks are based on social engineering, which manipulates victims into divulging sensitive information.

The Social Media Staff Awareness Human Patch E-learning Course aims to reduce the likelihood of human error by familiarising staff with the current social media landscape and helping them understand the importance of secure social media use, ultimately equipping them with the knowledge to recognise and avoid common risks.

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “When it comes to cyber security and data privacy, there is no better preventive measure than training your staff. Social media, in particular, is a big risk in the hands of employees who lack awareness of the variety and potency of cyber threats.”

“Organisations that want to prove they take data privacy seriously must prioritise staff awareness, as their employees are often their biggest vulnerability.”

The course is available as a one-year licence, which can be either individual or corporate, depending on the number of users required, and is hosted on GRC eLearning Ltd’s learning management system. To purchase a licence, please visit the product page.

IT Governance and GRC eLearning are divisions of GRC International Group. The Group is the holding company for a group of companies providing a range of products and services to address the IT governance, risk management and compliance requirements of organisations to enable them to meet the relevant commercial requirements and regulatory standards.
