This 15-minute, interactive human patch e-learning course educates staff members on the potential pitfalls of using social media, including risks and consequences, as well as mitigation techniques and recognising incidents.
In recent years, it’s become apparent that the use of social media can have its downsides, including accidental breach of company information and opportunity for attacks. This course will educate employees, helping them understand how these incidents can happen and how to prevent them.
Educate employees on their responsibilities so that best-practice business continuity techniques become second nature.
Your staff are your last line of defence. Expensive technology won’t matter if your employees don’t understand the threats they face.
Prevent a data breach or security incident by training your staff on best-practice procedures so they can actively help to mitigate the risks to your sensitive data.
Refresh staff understanding as part of a continual staff awareness programme with this annual licence and free monthly staff newsletter.
Ensure staff receive appropriate awareness training and everyone has the same level and quality of training.
Enable your employees to demonstrate their competence in social media with digital badges. These can be included in email signatures and shared on social platforms.

The risk of compromised information, whether through an innocent mistake or a deliberate attack, can bring an organisation to a standstill. Moreover, with the high-profile GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) protecting personal information, monetary and reputational damage are at stake.
Incidents through the hacking of social media accounts, accidental sharing of confidential information or blackmail are on the rise, but can be prevented if staff are properly trained in the risks of social media use.
Enrol staff on the Social Media Staff Awareness Human Patch E-Learning Course to ensure such incidents are kept to a minimum.
