Information Shield Announces New Publication and Web Site for Employee Security Awareness

Information Protection Made Easy – A Guide for Employees and Contractors Now Available

Houston, Texas – Information Shield, a global publisher of information security and privacy leading practices, today announced the release of Information Protection Made Easy – A Guide for Employees and Contractors. This new publication explains the critical role of employees and contractors in the protection of corporate information and offers common-sense tips to help people protect themselves and their employers.

“Recent high-profile security and privacy breaches continue to remind us that security is at least as much about people as it is about technology,” said David Lineman, the publication author and president of Information Shield. “While traditional awareness training focuses on the needs of the company, this book tries to answer the question, ‘What’s in it for me?’ Employees and other trusted users should feel that it is in their best interest to protect information.”

Information Protection Made Easy takes a unique approach to user education by demonstrating, using simple language and real-world examples from today’s headlines, how employees can make mistakes that cost their employees real financial damage. It covers topics ranging from email security to the employee’s role in Sarbanes-Oxley. Readers can test their knowledge of information protection on the companion web site at

“This book would be a great addition to any information security awareness program,” says Rebecca Herold, CISSP, Information Security and Privacy Consultant and author of Managing an Information Security and Privacy Awareness and Training Program. “It covers a wide range of security issues in an engaging and easy-to-understand manner, with plenty of attention-grabbing examples that will help motivate readers to become part of the information security solution.”

Organizations can receive bulk discounts on purchases of Information Protection Made Easy that make it an affordable addition to their security and awareness initiatives. Organizations can also demonstrate management’s commitment to information security with a custom printing of Information Protection Made Easy using their corporate logo and branding. Information Protection Made Easy is available in hard-copy and electronic E-book format.
