Course Introduction

The EssentialSkillz Internet, Email & Social Media Policy Online Training Course outlines the importance of using IT facilities (eg networks that include private intranets and public internet), software and equipment (eg PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones) appropriately. Responsible use of IT facilities reduces the risk of security breaches for you and your organisation.

Course Content

Concepts such as copyright, data protection, discrimination, harassment and confidentially and how they relate to appropriate use of an organisation’s IT facilities are explained. The fundamentals of IT security are discussed too. The importance of creating strong passwords, carrying out data backups, keeping antivirus software updated and the dangers of unsolicited email attachments are explained. All employees have a duty to work in an security conscientious manner.

Employee responsibilities when it comes to social media is given emphasis. Social media can blur traditional boundaries between work and personal life. The course outlines general principles of appropriate and inappropriate social media use in the workplace, and clearly outlines that, unless specifically authorised, an employee should not comment on behalf of the organisation.

Questions and interactive exercises, such as matching tasks, are used to prompt the user to think about how to apply the lessons learnt in the course. Our Internet, Email & Social Media Policy Training Course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation.
