Custom-tailor a security course

''Integrated Management Services Inc. has a Web-based computer security awareness training tool called CSAT that claims compliance with Office of Management and Budget Circular A-130 and Computer Security Act requirements.'
The interactive CSAT training software is installed on a network or Web server, and users browse it to take the security training on their own. An end-user course requires about 30 minutes.

The server registers the time when the work is completed, and it can continue to monitor overall security awareness. Courses cover protecting work areas, proper use of passwords and e-mail, virus avoidance and incident reporting.

IMSI of Arlington, Va., sells the server software at $40,000 for 2,000 users. The price includes tailoring with audio or video segments, photos and custom examples. Different CSAT versions are available for users, managers, administrators, security officers and disabled workers.

The Small Business Administration, Education Department, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms use CSAT for yearly awareness training.
