Purpose of this course

Providing delegates with a broad view of what cyber means, what areas it applies to, an appreciation of the terminology and the application of cyber principles in their organisation.

Who is this course for

Delegates that need to gain an appreciation of the role, language and considerations of cyber in the modern business.

You will learn how to
  • Explain the importance of cyber within the organisation.
  • Understand key terminology and how it applies to you.
  • Recognise key technologies and apply cyber principles when using them.
  • Understand how cyber is not just an ‘IT’ issue but one that applies to all of us.
  • Apply best practices to the business processes and practices that you perform in your everyday job.
Benefits for your organisation

The organisation is less likely to experience cyber related losses when its staff understand and apply basic cyber principles and practice good security hygiene. Underpinning this with a solid baseline understanding is key to realising these benefits.

Benefits for you as an individual

You will gain greater insight into security and how it is relevant to more than just IT people.
A higher level of appreciation means that you are less likely to be responsible for a security breach, less likely to fall foul of an attack and less likely to lose to cyber-related fraud professionally and personally.
