Independent janitorial and cleaning distributor, Jangro has extended its training solutions with a new course, helping organisations to ‘Stay Safe Online’
With coronavirus prevention measures seeing an increasing number of people working remotely from home, many organisations are left vulnerable to online viruses, and now face IT, and particularly cyber security, challenges. Following reports that cyber-crime has increased due to the outbreak of Covid-19, Jangro has introduced its latest addition to its e-learning platform, Learning Management Solution (LMS).
Developed by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), the module, entitled ’Stay Safe Online: Top Tips for Staff’, takes just 30 minutes to complete and introduces why cyber security is important and how attacks happen. The course addresses four key areas, including:
- Defending yourself against phishing
- Using strong passwords
- Securing your devices
- Reporting incidents (‘if in doubt, call it out’)
A useful infographic covering these core messages from the course is also free to download, print and share.
Joanne Gilliard, CEO at Jangro commented: “The current crisis has changed the way we work and live. Never before have so many employers been forced to let staff work from home to enable their business to keep operating on some level. Unfortunately, this has resulted in cybercriminals taking advantage of the increasing amount of time that we are all spending online..
“It is increasingly important to understand why businesses might be vulnerable to cyber-crime, and how to defend themselves if this occurs. Jangro’s Cyber Security module does just that. By educating staff, employers can help keep their organisations safe from online scams and viruses.”
Available to all Jangro customers and its staff, the LMS is a fully interactive and accessible e-learning platform, which is optimised for all devices. As well as Cyber Security, there are also modules in Colour Coding and Infection Control, Sharps Handling, Health & Safety, Manual Handling, COSHH, Washroom Hygiene, and much more.
A key benefit of the LMS is that course lengths vary, enabling users to train remotely at times that suit them. This allows cleaning operatives to dip in and out of short sessions or longer sessions, making learning highly flexible and accessible. Jangro also offers Task Cards, which are brief, highly visual documents containing step-by-step instructions for product usage and safety information, to help busy operatives access best practice on the go.
