The Employee Security Training program is a cost-effective way to increase security and protect your business, and demonstrate compliance to training requirements of the MA Data Security Law, HIPAA, and other industry specific security compliance requirements.

The basic documents you need for compliance such as a Written Information Security Policy (WISP), Acceptable Use Policy, Sanction Policy, (and more!) and a Security Risk Assessment template are also included.

The Dark Web is the part of the World Wide Web that is only accessible by means of special software, allowing users and website operators to remain anonymous or untraceable.  This is where criminal activity occurs.

Within MyGlue, there can be an unlimited number of users and storage for an unlimited number of passwords. The Admin can then create custom permissions for each user. That way each user no longer has access to every password in the database and you can block any user from particular credentials. Every interaction inside the site is recorded. Therefore audit logs and reporting are all easily accessible and can be run to see how old passwords are, who has had access to them, etc. You can even go back and find what password were previously used if needed. If the site user is ever drawn into any compliance audit they can easily provide the information needed.

Site users can also use the site to collaborate internally with each other. You can create security groups or buckets for “administration”, “accounting”, “management” or however works best for your business. Users can be added an removed at any time.
