Covered in this Course

The Cyber Security Awareness Training course is broken down into 3 sections.

1) Cyber Security Overview

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.

In section 1 of our Cyber Security Training we give a complete overview of Cyber Security.

2) What You Can Do

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.

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

3) Security Breaches

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.

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