Course description

An Introduction to Cyber Risk and Technology Awareness

The cost of Cyber Crime to the UK was estimated at £27 billion by the cabinet office in 2011. In 2012 one London based business lost £800 million alone. One SME lost £1million in one month and nearly closed due to the losses. Proposed fines of £183 and £99 million have been made by the Information Commissioner’s Office. Whilst these figures are headline grabbing and can be open to interpretation, it can be seen that Cyber Crime and fines for Cyber Breaches are a significant risk to any business.

Cyber Security is often portrayed as complicated and difficult. This course demystifies Cyber Security as a business risk to be managed and how to build a culture that understands and addresses the threats to their information from cyber attack. This course will provide you with comprehensive and practical tools to apply in your day to day role as a specialist across cyber risk.

Without a strong Cyber Security Culture, management of Cyber Risk will be challenging.
