TRN.1.01 - General Security Awareness Training

Control Statement

All GitLab team-members complete security awareness training, which includes updates about relevant policies and how to report security events to the authorized response team. Records of training completion are documented and retained for tracking purposes.

Context

At GitLab, we use internal training modules developed by the Security Operations team as GitLab's security awareness training. In the past, security awareness training has only been a task associated with on-boarding as a new GitLab team-member. As we adopt new compliance frameworks and work towards an audit certification of some of these frameworks, we will need to increase the cadence of this training. Security awareness training can be seen as a hassle and disruption from normal work, but these trainings can have real value not only to GitLab as a company, but also to GitLab team members in their personal lives. Taking the time to go through this training will ensure team members are up to date on security best practices which will help to minimize GitLab's risk as a company.

Scope

This control applies to all GitLab team-members.
