Information security is an essential component of governance, risk management and compliance. It has
commercial value, supporting the organization’s business and strategic objectives. Secure organizations
confidently pursue business opportunities that would prove too risky for their insecure peers. Security awareness
and training are required for compliance with privacy laws, PCI-DSS and other obligations. In short, security awareness makes perfect business sense.

The NoticeBored subscription delivers:
Each module contains a stack of creative security awareness materials for staff, managers and IT professionals, supplied as camera-ready MS
Office files that you can easily customize if you wish (check out this month’s module
to see exactly what you’d be getting);
Each module is either brand new or thoroughly updated to reflect the current situation and current thinking on each topic area;
The Information Security 101 module
, designed both to launch your awareness program and for new employee security orientation training (saving US$645
if purchased separately);
Email and telephone support, with the opportunity to influence the topics we cover and the materials we supply, and to tap into our expertise in
security awareness, governance, metrics, ISO27k etc.
If your awareness budget is severely limited, or if you have already spent most of it, talk to us about your options. We’ll do our level best to accommodate
your requirements, such as a part-year subscription to align with your budget cycle. We’re happy to haggle with government organizations, charities, third
world businesses, SMEs - anyone in fact. If a competitor has offered you an attractive price for an equivalent product, let us know and we’ll cut you a deal
. Being a micro-business, we’re delighted to pass on the benefits of our low overheads as well as our passion for security awareness.
Remember that awareness is the most cost-effective security control. Alert, security-aware employees who recognize security attacks or incidents and
know how to respond are far less likely to succumb, while security-savvy IT professionals are much more likely to make good use of those expensive
security technologies you already have. Helping management appreciate the security risks facing the organization, along with the corresponding
governance and compliance obligations, it a great way to emphasize the strategic value of information security and cascade positive messages throughout the organization. We can even help you construct a budget request.

Information Security 101
Information Security 101 is a special multi-topic awareness module, designed to bring employees quickly up to speed on the basics of information security
through security orientation sessions or to accompany the launch/re-launch of an awareness program. It costs US$645
if purchased separately, and is supplied free of charge to welcome new NoticeBored subscribers.
Information security training, consultancy & management
In addition to public training courses for CISM and security metrics in New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific organized through our training partner
ALC, we offer in-house training and consultancy on a wide variety of information security topics, anywhere in the world. Our main strengths are: security awareness (naturally!), ISO27k (the ISO/IEC 27000-standards), security metrics, security policies, and IT audit ... but we can turn our hand to almost
anything relating to information security, governance, risk management and compliance. We particularly enjoy short consultancy/training assignments
spending up to one week on-site per month. For longer assignments, we prefer to work remotely using email, telephone and collaborative tools, delivering
good honest advice, mentoring and professional support. An example might be:
Two days on-site to set the scene, brief the CISO and elaborate on the organization’s security metrics objectives and challenges;
An all-day or intensive half-day metrics workshop involving middle- and senior/executive managers to establish the ground rules and then thrash
out a shortlist of security (and perhaps other) metrics;
A further day or two on-site helping the CISO deal with and resolve any immediate issues arising, perhaps finalizing the key design requirements
and initial set of metrics for an executive dashboard;
‘Virtual consulting’ distance support over the succeeding weeks or months to document and fine-tune the metrics and related processes,
charged on an agreed call-off/hourly/daily basis as and when required.
A similar approach might help you plan, establish and launch a world-class security awareness program, an ISO27k Information Security Management
System, or a productive information security management or IT audit function.
We’re also open to interim management roles, picking up the pieces when a CISO, Information Security Manager or IT auditor unexpectedly departs,
quickly picking up the reins and stabilizing the function, then helping you find, recruit and settle-in a suitable permanent replacement (not us, although we’re always flattered to be asked!).
Get in touch with your requirements and we’ll talk it through, either putting together a concrete proposal ourselves or recommending a trusted colleague
from our professional social network that extends literally around the globe.
