Cybersecurity Essentials for Businesses
ABOUT CYBERSECURITY COURSE
These security practices are as important as locking your doors or putting your cash in a safe. “You wouldn’t leave your front door open overnight for people to steal possessions so don’t do it online.”
What is directly at risk? Your money, your information, your reputation, your IT equipment and your IT based services. Information is an asset that can take many forms: client lists, customer databases, your financial details, your customers’ financial details, deals you are making or considering, your pricing information, product designs or manufacturing processes. There is a risk to your IT services and information wherever they are stored, whether held offline on your in-house computer or stored online in the clouds.
Analysis shows the majority of online threats could be prevented if businesses put basic security measures in place and train employees on Cyber Security.
This course will enlighten delegates to many of these security measures, including the five key controls organisations must have in place to protect against common Internet-based threats. You will learn how to manage your online security in the same way you would protect any other aspect of your business.
Aim of the Course:
The course introduces participants to the fundamentals of cyber security; creating a framework for businesses to protect themselves against the common cyber threats seen online.
In today’s data-driven, highly distributed world, companies now use the internet to undertake the very basic of business tasks, to advertise and sell, find new markets, customers and staff, communicate with customers and suppliers, process financial transactions, amongst others.
The Internet brings huge business opportunities and benefits; it also brings some security risks. It is increasingly important to manage these risks to take advantage of the internet whilst protecting your business.
Every day there are attacks on the IT systems of Nigerian companies like yours, attempting to steal information and money, or disrupt business activities. More customers are now demanding that their suppliers are secure, making cyber security a business necessity for companies.
This course provides a good practice foundation on cyber security risk management for business owners and managers to protect computer-based equipment and information from unintended or unauthorised access, change, theft or destruction.
*Students will receive a Certificate Of Completion upon completion of the course.
