Cyber Security Essentials for Executives

While computers and internet systems are extremely powerful tools for modern day-to-day business, they present new risks. The reliance on digital technology for data collection, analysis, communication, and everyday business operations heightens the need for organisations to be proactive in securing their computing resources.

 

This course is designed specifically for executives to gain an awareness of cyber threats and prevent attacks by utilising simple security best practices. It aims to impart a culture of a security-first approach with benefits that would quickly filter down across departments and job functions, helping organisations teach their employees secure behaviour.

 

It is a scenario-driven course with discussions based on the context of possible real-world situations as well as practical demonstrations. This approach provides a quick but effective training for busy executives and leaders getting them up to speed on best practices for maintaining a reliable and secure IT infrastructure throughout their organisations. By providing interactive training highlighting real-world incidents, leaders are more likely to retain the information from the lessons.

Course Objectives: On completion, you will be able to:

  • Identify cyber threats for your business and operations and learn how to develop security policies to mitigate the risk
