Using Safelight's Information Security & Privacy Awareness on-demand course, enterprises can train general staff on steps they can take to protect information in their everyday work

Providence, RI (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

Safelight Security, a leader in security education, is introducing its latest training course for enterprise staff, Information Security & Privacy Awareness, along with practical advice for training developers on application security in the software development lifecycle (SDLC) at HP Protect 2013, Booth #201, September 16-19, 2013 in Washington, DC.

Safelight Security’s new Information Security and Privacy Awareness on-demand training features nine modules that help general staff, including human resources, legal, marketing, finance, sales, operations and customer service employees, easily understand the scope, nature and origins of the diverse risks to enterprise security. Each interactive module combines engaging instruction and interactive challenges to teach the proactive steps employees can take to protect information in their everyday work – from creating more secure passwords and recognizing malicious emails to preventing malware infection and fending off social engineering attacks. The courses include a series of communications materials, such as infographics, printable tips sheets and informative articles, which reinforce key course topics and continue to enhance students’ learning.

“When your people are educated on how to protect important information on a daily basis, they can become your most valuable security asset," said David Whitlaw, vice president of global sales, Safelight Security. “The modules in our Information Security & Privacy Awareness course give enterprises a series of effective tools they can use to rapidly train all general staff on some of today’s most pressing security threats.”

In addition to a booth at HP Protect 2013, Safelight’s Kevin Poniatowski, director of instructor-led training services, will present Application Security in the SDLC(Session #1308). Building on Safelight Security’s decade-long expertise in training software development teams on secure application development methodologies, this session will teach developers the specific security tasks that must be included in each phase of the software development lifecycle to more effectively mitigate application security risks.
