Cyber Security Course: All you need to know

  • Text Hover

Cyber security courses covering all the training you need to know. Cyber crime, fraud, data breaches, legislation; it can often feel we are bombarded with an overwhelming sense of doom when it comes to protecting our organisation. Getting our heads around the measures required to implement to stay secure online and competitive can also feel overwhelming and frankly impossible. Even learning the language of technology and cyber security seems an unimaginable undertaking.

Cyber Security Course Overview

This course, isn’t about learning all of the threats out there, or even all of the solutions, but just what you need to know to provide  solid foundation of protection and create a positive security culture. It covers definitions & terminology, threats, security risk, policy, legal and ethical considerations, good practice, and recommendations to ensure you are equipped to understand the security challenges of the modern workplace.
Practical exercises, relatable analogies and clear language help  to dispel the mysticism around cyber security and data protection.
This one day course, will help you to strategically map out your organisational threats and weaknesses, legal obligations and security posture in order to establish sustain a basic information security programme in your workplace.
