The first module available, "Information Security Fundamentals: Introduction to Security" is a one-hour, self-paced tutorial that introduces listeners to information security.

This course meets the needs of business owners, managers and others who need to understand what they can do to ward off security threats.

Presented by Paul E.

With PSI Training's unique "learn while you drive" approach to security training, the audio CD can be used while commuting to reinforce what is learned in the course.

Christopher Boring, marketing communications manager with Toshiba Network Products Division, said, "There is a great need for professionally produced and timely information security IT classes for the non-IT manager."

He added, "Any manager who is concerned about securing his company's sensitive data and intellectual property would be interested in taking this class."

  • Introduction to Security
