What is the most valuable asset in your organisation? Perhaps you feel it is your staff or your equipment. But, for more and more organisations – information is their most valuable asset. We do business in an information economy and you hold precious information in the form of business records, customer databases, and intellectual property. You hire security personnel, install CCTV cameras, and have policies to protect your staff and equipment, but are you doing enough to protect your information?
Information security law is the area of law that asks whether you are protecting your information sufficiently. If a data breach happens, the relevant authority will want to know what steps you took to comply with information security law. Our ‘Information Security Compliance Programme’ is a four week online course with related tools to help you do this.
How it works
Once you enquire about the course, we’ll contact you to find out more about your organisation and help you decide whether its right for you. If it is right for you, we’ll send you the invoice, wait for you to pay, and then sign you up for the course. When the course starts, you’ll be able to:
- participate in live webinars – attend a one hour live webinar each week, ask your questions, and have them answered in real-time
- review course notes – read the course notes from the webinar in the private members area of our website
- download tools – download information security related tools, including our list of action items, information security policy, and incident response policy
