Frequently asked questions

What is compliance training for cybersecurity?

Compliance training is employee education required by legislation or regulations. Compliance training may also refer to education mandated or recommended via industry standards, frameworks or internal policies. Although some compliance mandates specify training topics or types, many include general requirements (e.g., provide annual security awareness training for all employees).

What are some examples of compliance training?

Compliance training is woven into our programs, so specific examples depend on the role, the job level, the goal of the employee and the courses necessary to fulfill their needs. Infosec IQ offers training for a variety of compliance needs: HIPAA, PCI DSS, GLBA, SOX, FERPA, GDPR, OWASP, DFARs and more. In addition, our Infosec Skills technical training and live boot camps help ensure you meet 8140/8570 certification requirements, help prepare for CMMC assessments, and align with other frameworks and best practices, such as the MITRE ATT&CK® Framework and Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity.

What is included in compliance training?

Meeting compliance is one part of security awareness training, but it is a crucial element for doing business in our interconnected world. Our programs are built to include training that helps you stay compliant with industry-recognized regulations, like HIPPA, PCI, DSS, GDPR, CCPA, FERPA, and more. 

In addition, all of our technical training maps to the Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework) and our certification boot camps ensure you stay compliant with DoD 8570.01-M.

How do I implement compliance education?

Cybersecurity compliance training teaches the best practices and protocols to protect sensitive information. It empowers employees to identify and respond to potential security threats, helps them take responsible online action and keeps the importance of data privacy top-of-mind.


Implement compliance measures in your organization in a few steps:

  • Assess and identify the relevant compliance requirements, from industry-specific regulations to general best practices.

  •  Develop policies and procedures to address requirements: define roles, establish protocols and create documentation.

  • Provide training and education to all employees to ensure they understand and adopt best compliance implementation practices.

  •  Include regular audits and monitoring processes to assess compliance levels and identify areas for improvement. Keep up with evolving compliance standards with consistent communication and updates.

  • Establish a culture of compliance, where everyone feels invested in maintaining a secure and compliant environment.

My organization is required to provide security awareness training for every employee. Does Infosec IQ cover this requirement?

Yes. The Infosec IQ security awareness and simulated phishing platform includes everything you need to deliver — and document — security awareness training for all employees and prove compliance.

How can I achieve NIST Cybersecurity Framework compliance for security awareness training?

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is a voluntary set of standards, guidelines and best practices to help organizations manage cybersecurity-related risk. The Framework outlines five core functions used to help organizations organize basic cybersecurity activities: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover. The Protect function identifies security awareness training as a key component to an effective cybersecurity program.

To align with NIST recommendations, organizations should ensure “personnel and partners are provided cybersecurity awareness education and are trained to perform their cybersecurity-related duties and responsibilities consistent with related policies, procedures, and agreements.”

NIST provides guidance on security awareness and training topics in its special publications and encourages organizations to train employees on phishing, social engineering, password security, safe web browsing, physical security and more.

All Infosec IQ security awareness training content is mapped to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and special publication recommendations to make it easy for any organization to build an effective employee training program into their cybersecurity strategy.

How can I fulfill mandatory security awareness training while keeping my training program fun and engaging?
