Assessment Description

This is a standalone employee assessment without course materials and incorporates an assessment to determine the current level of knowledge. Taking the assessment is a cheaper and quicker way to re-establish awareness and knowledge levels without requiring to take a complete course.

Employees working in UK commercial and third sector companies of any size need to be aware of basic information security objectives and principles. It is important for employees to be aware of the context of their role and the roles of others in supporting good information security practice. 

Many information security certification standards include requirements for regular training of employees and this assessment is a means to assess the knowledge of individuals that have previously completed training.

Who is the assessment for?

This is a standalone assessment (with no training content) and is intended for any employee who has either previously completed awareness training or has a good working knowledge of information security requirements. It is more difficult to complete and pass this assessment than the assessment which is part of the awareness course and is potentially suited to individuals who routinely control or process personal data, and an assessment of their ongoing awareness would be beneficial.

This course / assessment is not intended for public sector or government organisations where special rules apply.
