Learning outcomes 

When learners complete this Information Security e-learning module they will understand:

  • Why information security matters – to avoid the cost of breaches, to protect information assets, to avoid damage to reputation, and it ensures your organisation complies with the law
  • How organisations and individuals can manage risk and external threats to Information Security from hackers and fraudsters – this includes phishing, fraud, managing risks with devices, software, emails, the web at home and at work. and passwords.
  • How organisations and individuals can behave responsibly when using social media, their own devices or Intellectual Property (IP) to mitigate against threats to Information Security.

Information security matters

  • In 2015, whenever big businesses suffered severe online Information Security breaches (due to external attack or internal actions) the average cost was £1.5 million.
  • In 2015, 74% of SMEs reported Information Security breaches – and 90% of large businesses said the same.

We built this course starting with a contemporary definition of Information Security: It helps to protect information, both electronic and paper-based. from unauthorised access, amendment, misuse, theft and disaster, and it ensures that information systems work as intended.

In todays workplace its not just about stopping hackers stealing data. Its about using digital resources, such as social media, across the board – to protect the organisation and individuals.

At Marshalls were totally focused on creating content thats exactly right for your learners. Thats why weve built our business around customising our existing courses to match the needs of specific organisations. And if something completely originals required, well make a bespoke course for you from scratch.

When we do this, our approach is guided by a few key principles.

Organisational Need
Why do you need to provide learning for your users – specifically? Is there a compliance need, a requirement to raise performance – or generate positive outcomes for external stakeholders? We prioritise making this clear as the first step in all of our projects.

Learner Centric
Who are your learners? What are their preferred learning styles? What do they know already? How confident are they with using technology? Well put these questions to you, and base our approach around the picture we build up.

Learning Outcomes
We use these to decide what every screen in every course we make is intended to achieve. What is it – exactly – that learners need to explain, describe, distinguish or list? Defining these up-front keeps every project on course as we move from initial proposal, through to storyboarding and then development.

Page-turning e-learning just doesnt work. All of our courses are highly interactive, making extensive use of scenarios in particular. Rich media is used as appropriate, from audio-visual resources through to animations and bespoke graphics.

Respect for Learners
Treating learners as adults is vital to us. People dont learn well if they feel theyre being patronised, and we aim to let users manage their own learning experience. We do this by writing our courses with an honest, direct tone, and giving learners choices in the form of additional learning resources and open navigational features.

Whats in it for me? is a question that all of our learners should be able to answer.
