Information Security Awareness Barometer
Iain McLeod, Managing Director of SAI Global Compliance EMEA, said: “Today organisations are having to look for more innovative ways to get employees thinking about information security. The new Information Security Barometer provides an innovative and engaging way to promote the issue of information security quickly and to reinforce the fact that it is everyone’s responsibility to help protect data. We are offering the tool completely free of charge to all organisations, large and small, to help kick-start security awareness initiatives, or to support existing security awareness programmes.”
Delivered online, via a unique URL, the Information Security Barometer walks employees through a set of realistic, thought provoking, work-based information security scenarios. Each scenario highlights the importance of information security, whilst reinforcing the fact that it is everyone’s responsibility to help minimise risk. Taking just a few minutes to complete, the Security Barometer concludes by giving each person their own personal information security awareness rating.
“What’s great about the Barometer is that it will hopefully create a real buzz about information security in the workplace. The tool is quick and easy to implement and takes just minutes for each individual to complete. The content is engaging, but at the same time it carries a serious message – conveyed in an interactive and thought provoking way. We know that organisations struggle to implement security awareness initiatives that capture peoples attention, this tool will help put information security back at the forefront of employees minds in just a matter of minutes.” said Iain McLeod.
