Cyber Security in the Irish Workplace

About this course

It is vital that your employees have an understanding of the importance of cyber security and the dangers which may be present in your workplace.

Legal Island’s Cyber Security in the Workplace eLearning course is tailored specifically to Irish law and provides comprehensive compliance training for all employees on cyber security practices in the workplace.

 

Why is cyber security training important?

Recovering from a cyber attack can be difficult and costly – if not impossible. As new security threats emerge every day, businesses need to be strategic and proactive in their
approach to cyber security.

The impact of a successful cyber attack on an organisation includes:

  • The financial cost of an attack due to the theft of money or information which could lead to disruption to trading or loss of business
  • Reputational damage possibly resulting in customers losing trust in you and taking their business elsewhere
  • Legal consequences such as fines and regulatory sanctions could be imposed from the Data Protection Commission (DPC). Organisations can now face fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater

According to PwC’s Irish Economic Crime Survey 2018, incidences of cybercrime in Ireland have increased substantially – 61% of Irish companies have reported having suffered cybercrime over the last two years, compared to 44% in 2016.

 

Who needs cyber security training?

Advice from data protection experts is that cyber security training is completed on day one of employment and then refreshed regularly to ensure all staff are aware of their roles and responsibilities in protecting your organisation and themselves from a cyber attack.

A recent report, PwC Global State of Information Security Survey 2018, found that employees are responsible for 27% of all cyber security incidents.

 

How long does this Cyber Security training take?

The course will take no longer than 60 minutes to complete including an assessment. Each member of staff will receive their own personalised certificate upon successful completion.
