Security Training

Definition: Security Training is a key component of an information assurance plan. General employees, vendors, managers, corporate officers and the Board need to be educated as to the purpose of the information assurance program. Each individual who is associated with the company must be aware of his or her own individual responsibilities. There might very well be a different awareness education plan for each group of employees. Otherwise, a successful information assurance program is impossible. Each person must be aware of the overall plan, the rationale for it and those components for which they are personally responsible.

Its Relevance: A security awareness education program is absolutely essential for an organization and its employees. The matter needs to be addressed in the official policies and procedures manual. Assurance efforts are otherwise “hit” and “miss”.
