Employees, managers and directors should all have a good understanding of the threat posed by cyber-attacks and the importance of guarding against data breaches.

This short course will explain why cyber attacks and data breaches happen and provide practical advice on how to set up effective defences.

First, the course will identify potential ‘cyber threat actors’ who initiate cybercrime, along with looking at the main motivations behind cyber-attacks on individuals and organisations.

On a more practical level, you’ll learn how to recognise and deal effectively with phishing attempts. The course will highlight the importance of keeping passwords secure and cover security for devices, such as smartphones, laptops, tablets or desktop computers.

You’ll learn how to report a suspected cyber attack, and what to do if you genuinely make a mistake.

Finally, we’ll underline the importance of cooperation and show how working closely together helpsovercome a wide range of cybersecurity issues.
