Course Description

Protecting your organization begins with ensuring your employees are prepared to assist in keeping your computers and networks safe. The strongest security asset is already inside the company: the employees. The most basic thing that every organization needs is security awareness training. Security awareness training is all about teaching your colleagues and employees to understand the risks and threats around the ever-evolving cyber world. The main purpose is to ensure that these people realize that hackers within organized gangs of cyber criminals will try to deliberately attack, steal, damage or misuse your organizations systems and information, and that therefore everyone within the organization needs to be aware of the associated risk, and thus work to adequately protect the organization against these risks.
