Information Security Awareness Training

Information Security Training, as required by regulation, is critical to the success of the institution’s Information Security Program. Employee Information Security Awareness Training is delivered through our web-based presentation. The training, which is designed for all employees, will:

  • Introduce and explain the institution’s Information Security Program.
  • Provide instruction that teaches staff to recognize a perceived or actual attack or threat, and also to take appropriate action to inform the right people in a timely manner.
  • Provide instruction that teaches staff to respond appropriately to customers or members inquiries and requests for assistance when sensitive consumer information has been compromised.
  • Provide instruction that teaches staff to take appropriate action to prevent, detect and mitigate the incidence of identity theft.
  • Provide instruction on the proper care, handling and use of member information and other vital records and information.
  • Address appropriate use of email, internet, and other computer resources with an emphasis on critical issues identified by management.

Training sessions are available on-demand making this format ideal for on-boarding new employees and for annual employee information security awareness training. Training is a key element for creating awareness and understanding of the institution’s information security policy and procedures.

Optionally, Security Compliance Associates will conduct on-site Information Security Program training. Training sessions are sixty to ninety minutes in duration, depending on the format and content selected by management. At the institution’s discretion, training may be presented directly to employees or in a “train the trainer” format.
