Protecting your company’s intellectual property and information assets are key responsibilities of the Board of Directors. ¬†Cyber Security is not just an IT problem, but requires everyone in the organisation to play his or her part in keeping data and systems safe.

It is essential to create the right culture and part of this is training both staff and the board on they respective responsibilities to prevent and mitigate the risk of a cyber security attack.

In response to requests from clients, Solitaire Consulting has created two cyber security awareness courses. The first is a general session aimed at all staff, the second is specific to the board of directors. Both courses are tailored to the client’s IT landscape and will be designed to complement their existing information and cyber security policies.

The typical awareness course covers the following areas:

  • Introduction to cyber security
  • Attack tools and techniques
  • Staff / board responsibilities for cyber security
  • Impacts of a cyber security breach
  • Managing cyber risk
  • Scenarios and case studies

Courses are typically one hour in length.

Cyber security awareness training is now an essential part of overall information governance and should be undertaken on an annual basis.

Solitaire Consulting’s approach to cyber security training is to focus on the human, not the IT elements. If you would like further information on either course, or a proposal to deliver awareness training to your staff, please contact us now.
