Free Webinar: The need for information security awareness and training - the SSS approach

  • Date: 9 June 2020 at 14:00 NZST
  • Speaker: Gavin Willbond, Principal Security Consultant

Did you know that according to CERT NZ, the top three incident categories reported in New Zealand each year since 2017 target users? Or that reported incidents cost NZ businesses and individuals almost 14 million dollars in 2019?

Many people assume that information security is the responsibility of the IT department, without realising that each and every person plays an important role.

In this webinar Gavin Willbond will explain why it is important to have an effective information security awareness program for all your staff. He will share some of the key areas that are important to include in staff training.

SSS implemented a classroom-based information security awareness and training program to complement the online options that they sell. Gavin will discuss the SSS approach around making sure your staff are empowered to help protect your organisation and themselves.
