/EINPresswire.com/ IT Governance, the information security experts, have published an Information Security Gallery, comprised of shareable awareness-raising images for IT professionals. These images will be particularly useful to SMEs; it was noted last week in the PwC ‘2013 Information security breaches’ survey that there was a considerable rise in data breaches found in smaller businesses.

The gallery includes a collection of images promoting information security best practices and policies. Using witty quotes and clever imagery, this gallery aims to raise awareness of IT best practices in the work place, helping reduce the risk of data breaches.

CEO of IT Governance and information security expert, Alan Calder, discloses the reasons behind generating these images: “we created, designed and are sharing these images in order to increase information security awareness within the workplace, and to promote a safer and securer environment for IT professionals. A large part of information security is staff awareness, and in our experience, staff are more likely to remember a single catchy image than a paragraph of text hidden in a 10-page document.”

These images are available for free from the IT Governance website. IT and information security professionals are encouraged to share the images amongst colleagues, clients and friends. To make this easier, ‘share’ buttons have been added to each image, encouraging their distribution on social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and Pinterest. The use of these images is subject to the Creative Commons License.

IT Governance has already noticed an increase in retweets on Twitter and Likes and shares on Facebook, showing that the images have been well received by followers.
