Welcome to Security Innovation
You will no doubt have heard of the new Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) set to enter into force in May 2018. Employee training is critical for successfully implementing company-wide protection measures for confidential data.
The Cyber Security Awareness Training courses offered by Security Innovation are a package of highly interactive, scenario-based training sessions with supporting documents (information sheets, guides, 2-minute videos, etc.). These are designed to educate about the behavioural changes necessary to ensure the protection of confidential data in day-to-day operations. The individual modules are available in English, Spanish, French, Chinese, Arabic, German, Italian and Vietnamese.
Cyber Security Awareness Training – Modules:
The Cyber Security Awareness Program is offered under a one-year licensing arrangement based on the number of users (multi-year licenses possible). The annual license model is offered because the programme evolves on an ongoing basis as the training materials are regularly updated to address current issues. The training programme consists of the following modules:
In this module, participants learn more about the different types and iterations of malware. The learning goal for this module is to be able to identify and classify malware and develop defensive strategies for preventing malware infection in the workplace and home environments.
Participants learn how to identify malicious e-mails before these can pose a threat. You will learn about proper e-mail handling, studying best practices and examples of how and when e-mail should be utilised for communicating certain types of information.
IDENTIFYING PHISHING ATTEMPTS

Participants learn more about the various methods attackers employ to try to trick and entice users. Best practices are shown about how to properly respond to a phishing attack so as to avoid the threat.

IT TRAVEL SECURITY
IT travel security is more important than ever in view of the huge volume of data now storable on small devices and carriers. In this module, staff learn about risks associated with transporting sensitive data and are advised on how to travel safely when carrying sensitive data, with examples of when it’s best to leave such data at home.
Cyber Security Awareness Training – Supplemental Materials:
All modules are structured with a teaching segment combined with a range of supplementary communication materials designed to enhance the learning process, which include:
ADVISORY SHEETS & INSTRUCTIONS
The advisory sheets for the month's training module are a concrete tool for explaining complex subject matter in short, uncomplicated steps. These sheets can be printed out and distributed at weekly team meetings and printed out by individuals for their own use, and can be posted at every workstation.
Each course is structured with a theory portion and a practical portion focused on acquiring situational know-how, making the courses both informative and interesting. This content comes with an interactive exercise designed to be engaging and challenging.
The learning units are structured with high-impact graphical posters that snare the reader's attention and are ideal for visual and fact-oriented learners and for gaining the attention of casual observers.
CUSTOMISABLE INFO SHEETS
Brief, informative and engaging articles that provide staff with information about the topic and content of the module. These can be customised in a variety of ways.
