Whilst technically based cyber-attacks and defences are a major part of securing your organisation, it’s vital to ensure your organisation’s most important asset – its people – are aware of and able to identify and respond to cyber-attacks.
Intertek’s Information Security Awareness Training provides staff with engaging training that changes behaviours and ensures that your employees know how to recognise, appropriately respond to and prevent information security incidents.
Challenges to overcome typically include:
Security Awareness Training addresses all these challenges.
In addition to standard training modules, the program can be tailored to meet specific needs and different audiences, through an assessment of current security awareness levels, staff profile and client specific policies.
Whereas technical vulnerabilities such as unpatched software or weak encryption are sought out by penetration testing, Intertek’s Social Engineering service focuses on identifying weaknesses through interaction with the social, physical and procedural aspects of the organisation.
A lack of staff security awareness and weak physical or procedural security controls may allow unauthorized access to confidential information, via the people and buildings that hold this data.
