Course Overview

An introduction to cyber security which will give insight into the 5 core principles outlined by the GFSC’s cyber security rules - Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond & Recover.

Course Content

On this session we will look at how you can conclude what measures and controls are proportionate for your business in each of the 5 core principles identified by the GFSC, through conducting a risk assessment.
