Introduction to Cyber

This intensive one day awareness course is non-technical and designed to enable business executives to improve their understanding of the business critical issues of cyber and information security, the threats they face, their vulnerabilities and what can be done to mitigate the risks. Current opportunities and how to plan appropriate investment in line with risk appetite and tolerance are explained and the course informs delegates about cyber techniques and their real-world consequences. Delegates will receive essential training on all relevant current legislation and regulation they need to be aware of as well as options for insurance cover. In addition, delegates will learn and experience the methodologies that attackers adopt to breach security and exploit vulnerabilities.

The aim is for delegates to leave with both an understanding of the strategic importance of cyber security, including the potential impacts on their business as well as a clear plan as to what needs to be in place to protect their business interests.

This GCHQ certified (GCT) cyber security training course has been developed in conjunction with Bristol Management Centre (BMC) and accredited by APMG International. Delegates have the option to acquire a formal qualification by successfully completing a short exam at the end of the course.
