Bite-sized eBooks on soft skills now available from Engage in Learning

Posted by Bram Vanoirbeek on 25-Jul-2018 11:01:00



Engage in Learning has partnered up with the world's largest publisher of eBooks, Bookboon, to offer clients hundreds of eBooks on soft skills, personal development and employee effectiveness.

A common mission: hands-on top-quality content

So what is bite-size learning?

Bookboon's eBooks are the epitome of bite-sized learning. Averaging at 30 to 60 pages, the eBooks provide readers with practical hands-on content that can be accessed when they want, where they want it.

Finishing an eBook only takes an hour or two, allowing time-poor employees to implement tomorrow what they've learned today.

Usability is also a big driver for Bookboon as it prides itself on being called "the Netflix of eLearning" because of the ease-of-use and accessibility of the eBooks, online and offline.

"The partnership with Engage in Learning is a no-brainer for us, given the shared mission of the two organisations around providing engaging learning that is practical and effective." - Paul Catchpole, Director Channel Sales, Bookboon

Not only do we share a mission, there's also a perfect match when it comes to the topics covered by Bookboon's library.Over 1,300 eBooks written by industry-leading experts cover everything from communication skills over leadership to the Microsoft Office suite.

Some of the highest usage rates in the digital learning industry

So would your employees actually read the eBooks?

The stats are remarkable. On average, over 40% of the employees of Bookboon's clients actively use the eLibrary to brush up on their soft skills

That makes Bookboon's usage rates one of the highest in the digital learning industry!

Using bite-sized learning alongside Engage in Learning’s more extensive online learning programmes will allow learners to cover all of the required leadership topics for the leadership and management qualifications awarded by the ILM, the UK’s top leadership and management qualifications specialist.

Engage in Learning Launches Learning Materials to Help Prevent Card Fraud

Posted by Kate Carter on 16-May-2018 17:02:02

Some £58bn was spent via credit and debit cards in the UK in April last year - some 6.8 per cent more than was spent in April 2016 - according to the UK’s Office for National Statistics.

While this might appear to offer increasing opportunities for card fraud, these opportunities are being minimised by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) – and by related learning materials, such as those launched recently by Engage in Learning.

The worldwide PCI DSS - which aims to help prevent card fraud and enable organisations to process card payments securely - is the result of collaboration between the major credit card brands: American Express, Discover, JCB, Mastercard and Visa. Complying with PCI DSS means that an organisation is doing its best to keep its customers’ information safe, secure and out of the hands of those who could use that data in a fraudulent way.

Anyone accepting a card payment is responsible for looking after that customer’s card data, regardless of who processes the data for that person’s organization. Moreover, those accepting card payments must comply with PCI DSS. It isn’t optional.

The Engage in Learning PCI DSS eLearning programme explains how the payment card system works; sets out the PCI’s requirements for organisations that process card payments, and outlines what those who handle payment card details need to know to ensure that they handle payment card data securely.

Intended to protect sensitive cardholder data, the PCI DSS has 12 high level requirements, encompassed in six categories:

1. Build and Maintain a Secure Network - install and maintain a firewall configuration to protect data. Don’t use vendor-supplied defaults for system passwords and other security parameters.
2. Protect Cardholder Data - protect stored data via encryption. Encrypt the transmission of cardholder data and sensitive information across the public net.
3. Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program – use, and regularly update, anti-virus software. Develop and maintain secure systems and applications.
4. Implement Strong Access Control Measures - restrict access to data by business on a need-to-know basis. Assign a unique ID to each person with computer access. Restrict physical access to cardholder data.
5. Regularly Monitor and Test Networks - track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data. Regularly test security systems and processes.
6. Maintain an Information Security Policy - maintain a policy that addresses Information Security.

ECSC, the UK's longest running full service information and cyber security service provider, has reviewed and verified this course.
