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 was already aware of much of the content but it was useful to be reminded of the safety measures and consequences of ignoring them. A few grammatical errors could do with correcting.

Clear explanations with visual examples and aids helped to convey key principles and concepts concisely and effectively. I came away knowing things I was not aware of previously.

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.

Business benefits

Cybercrime is incredibly disruptive and costs UK businesses almost £30 billion every year.

The damage it causes is not only financial, however; in a world that is increasingly digital and data-heavy, with an ever more tech-savvy customer base, the costs in lost revenue, reputation, and investment is just as detrimental. And then there’s the data protection laws which come with massive fines should personal data in your possession fall into the wrong hands. To make your stand and fight back against the cybercriminals, you need a solid defence. This Cyber Security training course is just the thing you need. It raises awareness of the key issues and main avenues of attack and provides solutions and defences against would-be criminals; protecting your money, your data, your reputation, and your customers.
