User Awareness Guidelines

Staff should be encouraged to familiarise themselves with the organisation's Information Security policies and the related responsibilities which thereby arise for their job functions. They must also be clear about the specific information security measures they are expected to undertake as part of their jobs, if Information Security is to be effective.

Increased awareness of Information Security issues and procedures not only reduces the risk of an Information Security Incident, it also increases the likelihood of suspicious activities being reported and appropriate action being taken.

All staff, whether current or potential recruits, should aim to be as familiar with the organisation's Information Security Policies as they are with their own job functions.

The benefits of a functioning Information Security program, which incorporates Information Security awareness, vigilance and action, result from a decrease in the number of Information Security Incidents and a reduced risk of their occurrence.
