Cybersecurity – Combating Cyber Threats

PR16

Introduction

An organisation’s people have a key role to play in an effective cyber-security strategy, with many of the most basic attacks being avoidable by raising staff awareness on cyber risk.

Developing an effective cybersecurity culture depends on raising the levels of awareness and understanding of cyber risk and embedding ‘security-aware’ values and behaviours across your organisation. 

This course is designed to equip delegates with an understanding of cyber threats within their organisation and to make them think carefully about their actions both during and outside working hours.  It will also provide them with approaches to address incidents and how to prepare business continuity plans, should an event arise.

Who should attend

This insightful course will be of great value to senior staff looking to get an overview of cybersecurity and best practice.  It is also designed for Communications Professionals working in marketing, PR and the Media.
