/EINPresswire.com/IT Governance Ltd, the leading expert in ISO27001 and information security management solutions, is advising organisations to strengthen the weakest link in their information security posture by increasing the ability of their staff to recognise and respond to cyber threats.

Organisations can now take advantage of the broad range of training aids from IT Governance that can help them get general staff involved in discussing and understanding the sometimes complex information security issues which might impinge on how they work. More information is available here: www.itgovernance.co.uk/training-aids.aspx.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, ‘Positive, aware and well trained members of staff are a key part of ensuring that you protect the crucial intellectual assets of your organisation, namely your confidential information, relationships and reputation. Utilising various staff awareness solutions such as staff awareness e-learning courses, posters or even games, is cost effective whilst improving efficiency and staff morale.’

Calder continues, ‘Increasingly companies are taking advantage of existing information security awareness products designed to deliver a complete solution for all staff induction and routine training awareness programmes in a low impact, low pressure, and ‘fun’ environment.’

Apart from staff awareness e-learning, IT Governance, offers a broader range of training aids including the ISMS Card Game, Information Security Awareness posters and the Animated Graphics Information Security Awareness Tool.

The ISMS Card Game is part of the new ITG Smart Card Series and has been designed by information security experts to be used as an information security training aid.

The cards can be used either on an individual basis in a ‘flash card’ revision style, or within a training environment. They create awareness and enhance individual’s knowledge and capabilities to deal with information security issues effectively.

The ISMS Card Game is available at www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3831.

The Animated Graphics Information Security Awareness Tool, from Visible Statement, represents software that puts critical information security reminders where users need them most – on the screens of their desktop and laptop machines.

The software creates high levels of awareness concerning your information security policies and maintains user interest with daily or weekly animation changes. It assists with compliance objectives for ISO27001 and the Data Protection Act by allowing customisation of the messages to assist specific requirements.

The Visible Statement Software is available at www.itgovernance.co.uk/visible-statement-infosec-awareness-tool.aspx
