Explore the fundamentals for any organisation wishing to remain vigilant and safe from cyber threats.

Many organisations rely upon information systems to carry out business or nationally critical functions, and employ digital technologies to manage safety, security and engineering systems. As a result, they can become vulnerable to threats related to accessing and operating their systems.

These can compromise the quality or validity of information, or even lead to the loss of information or system availability. The consequences of such incidents can be critical to the organisation, leading to loss of reputation, damage to assets or may even result in serious injuries or fatalities. This course covers the fundamentals for any organisation wishing to remain vigilant and safe from cyber threats.
