Securing Training is required to safeguard the most important digital assets of an individual or organization be it their data, communication, financial assets, intellectual property, reputation, business processes or trade secrets. Information Security is the practice of preventing unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, inspection, recording or destruction of information. Information Security’s primary focus is the balanced protection of the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data while maintaining a focus on efficient policy implementation, all without hampering organization productivity.
Security training is a formal process for educating employees about computer security. A good security training should educate employees about corporate policies and procedures for working with Information Technology (IT). Employees should receive information about who to contact if they discover a security threat and be taught that data as a valuable corporate asset.
Employees are part of an organization’s attack surface, and ensuring they have the know-how to defend themselves and the organization against threats is a critical part of a healthy security program. If an organization needs to comply with different government and industry regulations, such as FISMA, PCI, HIPAA or Sarbanes-Oxley, it must provide Security Training to employees to meet regulatory requirements.
