Candidate testing and training specialists, ISV Software, have added more new material to their testing platform ISV Online. Recruiters using the platform can benefit immediately from the release of online Cyber Security training and an associated test.

Information and data security is a prominent topic right now, particularly with the imminent enforcement of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As with the majority of new material from ISV, the Cyber Security test and training has been developed as a result of client feedback.

The Cyber Security training has been adapted for the ISV system from content provided under the Open Government Licence. Users can dip in and out of the video-based training, learning at their own pace. The full program takes around 30 minutes but is split into 6 modules covering different aspects of Cyber Security. These modules include protecting and sharing information, working on the move, information in the workplace, fraud and how to stay safe online.

ISV has developed an associated Cyber Security test to verify understanding of the topic. The test mirrors the content of the training. Individuals who complete the training should be well placed to answer the multiple-choice questions raised in the test. Recruiters can use it for their own team as well as for candidates.

As with all ISV’s recruitment tests, results are available instantly online and administrators can compare individuals and see which disciplines might need to be improved on.


The Cyber Security test and training is an addition to ISV’s online recruitment testing platform already containing over 100 ready to use tests including literacy, numeracy, data entry, driving and the Microsoft Office suite.

Amanda Davies, Managing Director at ISV, said, “You simply cannot escape the topic of Cyber Security and GDPR in recruitment right now, and rightly so. The penalties and cost implications of a data breach are huge. Having an easily accessible training program and associated test for Cyber Security is just another tool for recruiters to broaden their knowledge and give peace of mind that they are taking the right steps towards a more secure business.”
