Overview

The World Wide Web and the Internet are fantastic places to converse, conduct business, do research, or simply relax and play a few games. But unfortunately, it's also a place where some individuals would like to create havoc by committing fraud, identity theft, robbery, or to commit more serious crimes such as terrorism. This course looks at the world of Cyber security by examining the types of attacks these ner-do-wells use breach organisational defences and compromise systems.

The course then takes a high-level look at how organisations can protect against such attacks by describing how to build, operate and maintain a comprehensive set of security controls.

This course will provide you with an introduction to cyber security, hackers, hacking techniques and terminology.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
