Online Information Security Training Course

Information Security

Information Security TrainingAlong with music and movies, information is increasingly digital, making it easy to transmit and copy — and easy to misuse. While the entertainment industry scrambles to find ways to protect its copyrights, other organizations are likewise struggling to protect their confidential information and to keep pace with the increasingly stringent laws that protect consumer and employee privacy.

Although teenage hackers from faraway countries make the headlines, ordinary breaches of information security often start with things such as an intruder in the workspace, an unscrupulous co-worker or a stolen laptop. A password scrawled on a post-it note under an employee's desk or an un-shredded, discarded memo may be the keys to security breaches that cause grave damage to an organization's financial status and reputation.

Laws such as HIPAA and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act demand that employees take specific precautions with certain types of personal information they handle. But even organizations that are not subject to these laws must be sure that their employees understand and follow internal policies for protecting proprietary and/or confidential data in all forms.
