“An organization’s security is only as good as the people who work there,” said Winn Schwartau, President of The Security Awareness Company and Trusted Learning. “Our courses teach all employees about the basics of computer security and how they can personally make a difference in keeping the networks secure.”
The ISSA Learning Center is an online learning management system that allows individuals and organizations to register, pay for and begin taking courses immediately. Customized private schools can also be created for organizations that wish to pre-select courses offered to their audiences and pay for them in advance. Students are then given an access code and are allowed to take the courses at their leisure.
“Students can bookmark the pages they want to refer back to and they take a quiz at the end of the course to evaluate their proficiency in the topic, said James Bannister, CTO of Trusted Learning Corporation. “For those students in private schools, administrators track their progress and evaluate the effectiveness through our easy to use Trusted Engine.”
Course topics in the ISSA Learning Center include: Security Awareness 101, Email Safety at Work and Home, Internet & Computer Ethics for Kids, Identity Theft, Social Engineering, Spyware and Viruses. To access the ISSA Learning Center, visit the ISSA homepage at www.issa.org.
