Standards Based Training

simplEtraining's Security Awareness and Literacy training is standards based and "plug and play." Any organization can deploy it with little or no customization and meet both government and industry standards, including:

Section 508

A set of technical standards for e-learning software products - As we develop both the content and our own Enterprise grade LMS, we can understand the nuances of SCORM others might struggle with

ISO 27000/ISO 17799/BS7799

Internationally recognized code of practice offering guidelines for information security management

Standards Compliancy

ISO 27000 / ISO 17799 / BS 7799

The ISO 27000 series is an internationally recognized code of practice offering guidelines for information security management, which incorpoates and evolved from the former ISO 17799 and BS 7799 standards, including end-user security awareness training. Within the ISO 27000 / ISO 17799 / BS 7799 code of practice, providing appropriate training and education is considered a "Critical Success Factor."

The objective is "To ensure that users are aware of information security threats and concerns, and are equipped to support organizational security policy in the course of their normal work." The standard also calls for the same training to be given to "third party users" and for regular updates to be a part of awareness program. simplEtraining's Security Awareness Solution meets and exceeds end-user security awareness training requirements as laid out in ISO 27000 / ISO 17799 / BS 7799 by providing:

  • General information security training [outline]
  • Coverage of Viruses and Worms
  • Coverage of Mobile Computing
  • Coverage of Incident Response
  • Monthly updates via the Security Awareness eNewsletter
  • Local policies and procedures via course customization
  • New employee training requirements by internally mandating the training before allowing new users on the network
