Course Description

Many small businesses cannot effectively recover from today’s latest attacks. They lack the staff and expertise needed to understand how their business should be secured. Small businesses cannot afford to endure a Ransomware attack, a denial of service attack or any attack that causes a threat to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their data at rest or in transit.

Many of these businesses are forced to invest in expensive security products and managed security service providers to protect their data. At the end of the day, profits are decreased significantly and data integrity is questioned. In order to protect your small business from cyber attacks, a certain level of awareness and understanding is needed.
