Farmington Hills, Mich. (PRWEB) April 15, 2009
TruArx, the leading IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) provider for middle market organizations, announced that it has released an enhanced version of its best selling eLearning course "Protecting Sensitive Data: What You Should Know." The primary goals for the course are to increase awareness of common security threats and their potential outcomes and impacts, to provide guidance on how to secure sensitive data, to encourage accurate incident reporting, and to meet compliance training requirements, including the PCI DSS, HIPAA and SOX. Clients can choose a fully hosted solution or license the SCORM compliant courses for deployment on an internal Learning Management System (LMS).
Utilized by leading clients in industry sectors that handle sensitive customer data such as hospitality, restaurants, retail, and higher education, the 30 minute course provides a cost-effective means to train large numbers of geographically distributed employees. Other training methods may get the message across, but do not allow for centralized completion tracking and reporting, a requirement to demonstrate compliance.
Enhancements from the previous version include:
- More sophisticated, interactive test exercises;
- Support for multiple languages (English and Spanish);
- Key terminology hyperlinked to an embedded glossary;
- More neutral branding to support incorporation into partner solutions; and
- A more engaging, Ajax-enabled interface.
"Security awareness is a critical component of any security program," said Chris Noell, Executive Vice President of Product Management. "End users handle sensitive data on a daily basis. It's their actions that either protect or expose this data to a potential intruder. We are committed to continually enhancing the security awareness component of our IT Governance, Risk and Compliance solutions to make it easier for companies to implement a mature, effective awareness program."
