IT Training Solutions Launches Security Awareness Training

June 3, 2016--Heather Stratford, CEO of IT Training Solutions (ITTS) will be joining her team at the UB Tech 2016 Conference in Las Vegas June 6-8 to introduce a new, market-centered product line.
ITTS has built a reputation for highly regarded onsite and live-remote training since the founding of the company, over ten years ago. Last year they expanded into virtual courses and now offer 125 virtual courses for IT certifications and work force development which can be white labeled for institutions such as universities.
Bob Turner, CISO of University of Wisconsin-Madison declared, “Your pricing is awesome and the way you are working with us is even better. I’m going to start passing your cards around to people so you can work with more CISOs.”
This year ITTS has expanded into end-user security awareness and compliance training. Compliance such as HIPAA, PCI Compliance and Privacy are areas growing in importance. With over 70% of organizations reporting they have been compromised by a cyberattack in the past 12 months and that 90% of breaches are due to human error, essential end-user security awareness is no longer optional for any organization.
ITTS is working to help meet this security awareness need with a modular format system. This online training can be accessed anytime from anywhere and is geared for easy use by employees and end-users. The training typically runs 30-60 minutes and can be customized through interactive content that is specific to an organization’s needs. Administrators can easily monitor the status of workforce compliance and assessments.
Topics addressed could include areas such as: understanding security threats, identifying and detecting malware, phishing detection and awareness, data classification and storage/retention guidelines, cloud computing and storage, mobile device security, social media threats, and many other timely topics.
Specialty compliance topics can also be addressed with this system. Training is available on HIPAA for those dealing directly with patients and their files to those in IT that manage that data. Privacy training, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act compliance and PCI compliance training can all use this system.
“Our mission is to provide high quality, customized, information technology training and services worldwide,” said Stratford. “We want to partner with our clients and build long-term relationships to empower them to create stronger, more efficient and secure cultures. We have worked primarily with institutions of higher educations, as well as with governments and corporations.”
