IT Governance promotes online security in National Identity Fraud Prevention week

Alan Calder, IT Governance's chief executive, said that its new web page - Keep Safe Online - gives all comers access to a range of free online resources, as well as a free 10-step guide to online security.

The guide, IT Governance said, will dramatically reduce the likelihood of a business, or home network, falling victim to hackers, phishing attacks and viruses.

Calder said that the National Identity Fraud Prevention Week scheme is a great initiative which his company is pleased to support.

"Breaches of domestic online security can be far more distressing for individuals than corporate attacks. We want to make sure that good IT security is part of everybody's lives all the time at home and in the office", he said.

"There is a direct correlation between the level of security that people have at home and the level of security that they have at work", he added.

According to Calder, when organisations implement IT security awareness programmes, their staff often take the information on board and improve their information security at home too.

IT Governance, he explained, wants to make that process as easy as possible.

"Domestic online security can often be forgotten in the rush toward other priorities. Nonetheless, it doesn't take a lot of time or money to be secure, as long as a few basic rules are implemented and maintained", he said.
