The Importance of Security When Delivering High-Consequence Training


January 4, 2023

Online training has become increasingly popular recently, particularly as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced many organizations to move their training programs online. While online training can be a convenient and effective way to deliver training, it is important to prioritize security to protect sensitive information.

One of the key benefits of online training is that it allows organizations to deliver high-consequence training, such as safety training or compliance training, to a broader audience. However, this also means that the potential consequences of a security breach are higher. For example, if confidential information about safety procedures is leaked, it could lead to accidents or injuries.

There are several steps that organizations can take to ensure the security of their online training programs:

  • Use secure servers: It is important to use secure servers with strong protection against cyber attacks. This can help to prevent unauthorized access to confidential information.
  • If you do not want to host the solution, there are managed service providers who can assist. Ask them about their security standards, including disaster recovery and integrity monitoring.
  • Encrypt sensitive information: Encrypting sensitive information, such as login credentials and training materials, can help to protect it from being accessed by unauthorized individuals.
  • Use strong passwords: It is important to use strong passwords for all accounts associated with the training program, including login credentials for trainers and students.
  • Train employees on security best practices: It is important to educate employees about the importance of online security and best practices for protecting sensitive information. This can help to prevent accidental security breaches, such as clicking on a phishing link.
  • Regularly update security measures: Cyber threats are constantly evolving, so it is important to regularly update security measures to ensure they are effective. This may include updating passwords, installing security patches, and using antivirus software.

In conclusion, online security is critical when delivering high-consequence training. By following best practices and regularly updating security measures, organizations can ensure that their training programs are safe and secure.
