User Awareness Training Workshop

By Vigilize | Sunday, January 1, 2012 - Leave a Comment

GLBA Information Security:
Teaching Acceptable Use to Your Users

User Awareness
Because Information Security is a team effort, awareness is the most important control.  Financial Institutions must maintain an appropriate Acceptable Use Policy and teach the concepts inherent in that policy.  The training should stress the threats and vulnerabilities financial institutions face, and help users understand their role in mitigating information security risk.  According to the FFIEC, authorized internal users should receive a copy of the [Acceptable Use] policy and appropriate training, and signify their understanding and agreement with the policy before management grants access to the system.

Agenda

  • The importance of User Awareness.
  • Awareness at all “Levels” of the institution.
  • An example Annual Training Workshop.
  • The Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).
  • Creating your own Annual Training Workshop.
  • Due Diligence Exercises.
  • Programmatic Approach to Awareness.

Deliverables (Templates)

  • AUP Compliance Checklist
  • Identity Theft Prevention Brochure
  • User Awareness Training PowerPoint Presentation
  • User Awareness Comprehension Test
  • Access to our Workshop Portal and Appropriate Boilerplates

Who Should Attend

This “train the trainer” workshop is directed to information security officers, compliance personnel, training personnel, branch managers.  Anyone involved in developing training programs for how users are expected to treat Information in the bank should attend this hands-on workshop.

What You Should Bring

You DON’T have to bring anything, as this workshop will help you build your user awareness program from the ground up.  However, if you already have one . . .

Please bring a current copy of your Acceptable Use Policy.  This is a hands-on workshop, so bringing your policy and procedure will help you get the most out of your time!
