IT Governance announces release of new phishing and ransomware ‘human patch’ e-learning course

08/06/2017

IT Governance, the leading provider of cyber security expertise and solutions, is delighted to announce the launch of its new phishing and ransomware ‘human patch’ e-learning course.
 
The course is the first of a new series of e-learning courses called ‘human patches’. This new series will help organizations protect themselves from cyber criminals by ‘patching the human’ similarly to how organizations deploy software patches.
 
The course is designed to help employees in the most critical service sectors (health care, finance, and energy) become familiar with the latest cyber attack methodologies, like ransomware and phishing, to reduce their risk of falling victim.
 
Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “Organizations should start to think proactively about how they can protect themselves from the most common types of cyber attack – ransomware and phishing. Attacks like WannaCry can lead to major financial and reputational damage. With the GDPR due to be enforced in less than a year, businesses can no longer afford the financial repercussions associated with data breaches.”
 
IT Governance’s new phishing and ransomware human patch e-learning course is designed to educate employees on phishing, its impact on organizations and individuals, ransomware, encryption, and the WannaCry/WannaCrypt ransomware. It also provides tips to avoid falling victim to phishing attacks and ransomware, and helps delegates handle suspicious emails and take action when compromised.
 
This e-learning course is designed particularly for those in our most critical service sectors – such as health care, finance, and energy – to reduce the risk of falling victim to ransomware or phishing.
 
The course includes an eight-question test, drawn from a bank of 12 questions, with a pass mark of 75%.
