Cyber Security Essentials for Leaders

Develop the knowledge and techniques to contribute to your organisation’s cyber security as a non-tech leader.

In a world where almost all of our business data is online, cyber crime is an ever-present threat for all organisations. It can no longer be left to IT to manage alone. It must be a core part of organisational culture and a responsibility that sits across all functions. This course will help leaders understand the threats and opportunities, frameworks, risk mitigation and strategy alignment required to maintain best-practice cyber security.
