Security awareness & trainings

Security awareness and trainings refer to the educational efforts and initiatives undertaken to inform employees and stakeholders about the importance of information security, the various security threats that exist, and the best practices to mitigate these risks. The goal is to create a culture of security within the organization, where everyone understands their role in maintaining security and is equipped with the knowledge to protect the organization’s information assets. This involves a continuous process of learning and adaptation to new security challenges and threats. Flexible Bit provides a wide range of trainings in information security depending on the technical, organizational and business specifics. The main areas of trainings are (but not limited to):

  • Baseline security awareness trainings
  • Targeted security trainings
  • Executive & high profile manager trainings
  • Technological & development security trainings
  • Phishing, fraud and disaster simulations

About Information Security

Information security (or InfoSec) refers to the processes and methodologies designed to protect electronic and non electronic, print information from unauthorized access, use, misuse, disclosure, destruction, modification, or disruption. It is a broad term that encompasses a range of strategies for safeguarding information and information systems from a wide range of threats.

The Information security is focused on protecting 3 self related principles:

  • Confidentiality – ensuring that information is accessible only to those authorized to have access. This involves protecting personal privacy and proprietary information.
  • Integrity – safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of the information and processing methods. This means that data cannot be modified in an unauthorized or undetected manner.
  • Availability – ensuring that information and resources are available to those who need them when they need them. This involves maintaining hardware, performing timely upgrades, and creating backups.

The information security covers 5 major domains: Governance, Risk Management, Compliance, Security Program Management and Incident management and response.

Governance in information security sets the strategic direction and establishes the policies, procedures, and guidelines underpinning an organization’s cybersecurity efforts. It is the backbone of a security culture, which is driven by executive leadership & steering committee. This domain ensures that information security strategies align with and support the broader business objectives, embedding security into the DNA of organizational practices. Governance is about making information security an integral part of every decision, ensuring that it enhances, rather than impedes, the organization’s mission and operations.

Risk Management is the systematic process of identifying, analyzing, and addressing potential security threats to minimize their impact on the organization. It’s a proactive, ongoing effort to quantify and manage the uncertainties that threaten the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of information assets. Through regular assessments, threat modeling, and vulnerability scanning, this domain helps organizations prioritize resources effectively, balancing the cost of protective measures against the potential impact of security breaches. Risk management transforms the unpredictability of cyber threats into manageable, quantifiable risks, enabling smarter, more informed decision-making.

Compliance ensures that an organization adheres to external legal, regulatory, and industry standards related to information security. This domain is not just about meeting minimum requirements but truly understanding and embodying the principles behind these regulations to strengthen the organization’s security posture. Compliance is ever-evolving, requiring organizations to stay abreast of changes in the legal and regulatory landscape. By demonstrating a commitment to compliance, organizations not only avoid penalties and financial losses but also build trust with customers, partners, and the wider community, showcasing their dedication to protecting sensitive information.

Security Program Management is the operational heart of an organization’s information security efforts, turning the strategic vision of governance into actionable initiatives. This domain encompasses the planning, implementation, and oversight of the security program, ensuring it fits the organization’s unique needs while addressing evolving threats. It involves meticulous project management, cross-functional collaboration, and the agile allocation of resources to safeguard information assets effectively. Security Program Management is about making security practices an integral part of everyday operations, continually adapting to new challenges and ensuring that security measures remain robust and responsive.

Incident Management and Response is the emergency response mechanism for information security, equipped to handle security breaches and attacks with speed and efficiency. This domain focuses on minimizing the damage of incidents through prepared response strategies, encompassing detection, analysis, containment, eradication, and recovery efforts. It combines technical solutions, like SIEM systems, with expert human analysis to address threats promptly. Beyond immediate response, this domain emphasizes learning from incidents to strengthen future defenses, enhancing the organization’s resilience against new and evolving cyber threats.
