The Zertech Corporation has decided to increase their employees’ information security awareness. As Zertech’s IT Security Manager, the CISO has tasked you to find and compare three sources of information security awareness training. Write a professional memo to Mary Smith, the Chief Information Security Officer informing her of your analysis and recommendation.
- Describe your task.
- Discuss the three training options by comparing topics, cost, duration of training, and who provides the training (in-house or outsource).
- Recommend one of the training options (and why) to Ms. Smith.
- Include a signature block with your credentials
Note: At least two of the three must be outsourcing options and a reasonable effort to provide actual costs should be shown. And “reasonable” is based on my perception. “Costs not provided on the website” is not a reasonable effort. Calling a number of companies pretending to actually be planning to purchase their training is unreasonable in the other direction. There is information available online. It just may not be published for the first company or two you research.
