Course Overview

This course will examine the fundamentals of cyber security in terms of the threat landscape and what a well defended, security focussed organisation should look like.

According to the UK Government, 80% of cyber attacks could be prevented if organisations put simple cyber security controls in place. As attacks become more prevalent, so also does the need to protect personal information against data breaches under GDPR. This course will identify these security controls and provide a framework to determine your own cyber security approach.
