Who is the training for?

As of April 2016 we will be suspending training in order to refresh our materials. Announcements regarding face-to-face training will be made in our newsletter and on this website.

e-Learning will continue to be available during this period.

Information Asset Owners (IAOs)

Training workshops

The workshops are designed for larger groups of IAOs from a range of organisations and cover a variety of topics including: understanding the legal context, the roles and responsibilities of an IAO, the characteristics of an information asset, an information asset register, awareness of risks and threats and how to mitigate them, and managing an information loss incident.

Tailored training workshops

In addition to the above, where numbers permit, we also offer to come to organisations and deliver training to the organisation’s IAOs in house. These workshops are adapted to your organisation’s needs and the content is agreed beforehand.

Management board and audit committees

Management board briefings

These short and concise awareness sessions provide practical advice on risk mitigation and how to challenge existing information risk policies. The briefing takes approximately 30 minutes and can be delivered during a regular board and audit committee meeting. Alternatively, we can provide one-to-one training to individual board and audit committee members.

Information Governance staff and trainers

Delivering Information Assurance Training

This package is designed for people who wish to provide Information Assurance training within their own organisation. We will provide you with all the material you need to roll out training.

You will also develop experience of presenting to groups and delivering objective focused learning programmes.  While a basic knowledge of information assurance may be beneficial, it is not essential. Equally, previous experience of delivering training or presenting to groups would be advantageous but is not necessary.

All staff

Briefing sessions

Throughout the year we run briefing sessions on hot topics and pertinent subjects within information assurance and cyber security. Previous topics have included: responding to a cyber-attack; fraud; information handling; insider threats; and the threat landscape. We have featured speakers from IBM, CPNI, foreign governments and Facebook.

E-learning courses – Responsible for Information (RFI)

We have created this package specifically to provide a valuable contextual overview and basic grounding in information assurance, roles and responsibilities, information risk management and the first steps in managing an information loss incident for all roles. The course comes in a variety of formats: for IAOs, SIROs, management board members and general users.

Access the course via Civil Service Learning. For those public and third sector organisations and associated delivery partners who cannot subscribe to CSL, please email us and we will provide further guidance on how to access the RFI e-learning course.

RFI is publicly available for use by SMEs. This course is based on the RFI e-learning course used by central government, with a number of updates to suit the needs of SME employers.
