Are users an organisation’s greatest weakness?
ICDL Ireland, along with The Irish Computer Society and the Association of Data Protection Officers, has launched a set of complementary modules designed to inform workers of the dangers of individual user error and resultant data breaches.
ICS Secure User Certification comprises of two courses: IT Security and Data Protection. These two courses are both included in the free eLearning that FET centres can offer to students. Certification is available for students who wish to have proof of their learning. Therefore, this is a perfect package to offer students who are working or looking for a job and are expected to comply with GDPR in the workplace.
Surveys of IT Managers and Data Protection Officers show that the most common cause of data and security breaches are the accidental and inadvertent actions of users. No current technology can safeguard against user error.*
ICS Secure User combats weaknesses in staff knowledge of their responsibility for data privacy and IT security.
Teach students to protect their current and future employers from common threats. Build their understanding of their important role in safeguarding personal data.
