Security testing training

Improve awareness. Change behaviours. Reduce risk.

If your employees do not know or understand how to maintain the confidentiality of information, or how to protect your security systems, you increase the risk of your organisation becoming the target of an attack. Often your best line of defence is to raise awareness by providing basic cyber security training for everyone who interacts with networks, systems and information.

IT Governance training solutions

We offer a variety of training courses in different formats, to best suit you and your organisation. For more information, speak to one of our experts today.

Optimise your cyber security workforce by aligning processes, people and technology

  • Processes: Having an up-to-date understanding of current standards/regulations, roles and procedures needed to mitigate risk is essential for any organisation to function effectively in a cyber security environment.
  • People: Every organisation needs specialists to plan and execute the more complex activities required to deliver an effective cyber security strategy. Poorly trained personnel may mean inadequate risk management and the application of cyber security controls that simply do not work.
  • Technology: Technology is crucial when it comes to cyber security. By identifying the cyber risks that your organisation faces, you can then start to look at what controls to put in place, and what technologies you’ll need to do this.
