DPA Security Awareness Training is a continuous process to ensure that your employees understand the risks to the personal and sensitive identifiable information that your business processes, stores or transmits. An effective program should include initial training on definitions of personal and sensitive information and minimum security requirements for its protection and release – and be refreshed and repeated at least annually. Like information security policies, training must include the employee’s confirmation that they understand and accept their responsibilities to protect the information entrusted to them. Messages should be consistent, simple and useful outside of the workplace, as good security is a life-style, not a workplace obligation.
It is recommended as best practice by the UK Information Commissioner (ICO) to comply with the Regulations as a good awareness program heightens employee attentiveness to the security risks of losing sensitive data and the things that must be done to mitigate that risk.
Whether through ignorance, or malicious intent, employees are still the primary risk to an organisation’s information assets. By focusing on the most appropriate fundamental measures such as good passwords, not opening unknown attachments and where and how to report suspicious incidents, the programme will be more readily accepted by non-technical and technical employees alike.
Training should be provided initially to employees during their indoctrination to the company and then annually thereafter.
The service is charged on a per year, per employee basis so just give us the number of years you'd like us to provide the training (quantity) and the number of employees requiring training (users) when getting your quote. Our Factory Foreman will then call you to set everything up.
