Course overview

Almost half of all organisations in the UK suffer Cyber Security breaches each year, often leading to Personal Data Breaches, business interruption, financial loss and reputational damage.

Many businesses still treat Cyber Security as a technical IT problem, but more and more are realising that this is a business issue that needs visibility at board level.

This non-technical course is designed to help business owners and senior leaders understand the key elements of Cyber and Information Security related risks and the practical steps required for a comprehensive Cyber Security strategy appropriate for their business.

The course will include both presentation and group exercises to help attendees get to grips with identifying risks relevant to their organisations.
