Cyber Security Awareness Training Course Contents
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.
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.
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.

Legislation relating to Cyber Security Training
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.
A complimentary directive to GDPR, which focuses more on critical IT systems and their infrastructure.
