A variety of computer symbols - Cyber Security Training
In section 1 of our Cyber Security Training we give a complete overview of Cyber Security.
SECTION 1

The main types of security breaches that organisations face tend to be those that take advantage of human error and flaws in computer security. This section looks at how these breaches could happen and explains some simple ways to make it harder for cyber-criminals to gain access.

What can you do to prevent attacks from happening? As part of our Cyber Security Training.
SECTION 2

This section looks at some of the most common ways malicious software can get into a system and at ways to prevent this from happening. It concentrates on emails, passwords, accessing websites, using social media and uploading data from external devices.

Section 3 of our Cyber Security Training looks at security breaches.
SECTION 3

This final section is about continued vigilance on a day-to-day basis – spotting security weaknesses BEFORE a breach happens and how to report this. It also looks at recovery plans – how organisations handle breaches if they do happen.

ABOUT THIS COURSE

Cyber security is a vital part of an organisation’s information security measures.

Cyber-crime costs UK businesses a lot of money (Almost £30 billion per year to be more precise) and causes massive disruption. In fact, each year around half of all UK businesses has at least one security breach.

We are all responsible for keeping information safe when using computers and similar devices, so this Cyber Security Awareness Training has been designed for everyone to use.

It includes some straightforward practical steps that will help to protect computers, networks, programmes and data from unauthorised access, helping to safeguard the systems and information we use.

Cyber attacks are more prevalent than ever before, with ransomware attacking organisations (such as the NHS), airports, banks and government departments; the need for organisations to implement Cyber Security Training is obvious. Our Cyber Security Course can be completed in just 30 minutes and helps you to comply with current legislation.

We believe in practising what we preach. That's why we are Cyber Essentials Certified

I have received training for computer security before but this was a very good, clear and concise refresher course. There were some additional interesting facts that I learned that I will put into practice.

Reasonably engaging (if sexist)

Male characters: the online course tutor; the cunning baddie; the sneaky-spy employee Female characters: the receptionist who fails to prevent cunning baddie's access; the employee making a series of cybersecurity errors Other than the slight niggle of perpetuating eye-rolling gender stereotypes, it was a good course (!)

This training is useful and important.

I think some of the “test” questions were a bit sneaky in that one is asked to choose between options where there is little difference in validity. E.g does a weak password make you more or less vulnerable than a malicious email. Also while nobody doubts the value of strong passwords, if you have so many different and complex passwords that you have to write them down, then you are introducing more vulnerability.

Why is this training important?

COMPLIANCE

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

The General Data Protection Regulation builds on the long-standing 1995 EU Data Protection Directive. What does the GDPR mean for businesses? In short, dramatically increased fines for breaches and other changes including: 

  • Data breaches must be reported within 72 hours.
  • 'Personal data' now includes location, IP address and RFID identifiers.
  • People now have a right to "be forgotten".

*The GDPR comes into effect on the 25th of May 2018. You can register your interest in our upcoming GDPR training.

The NISD

A complimentary directive to GDPR, which focuses more on critical IT systems and their infrastructure.
