Training course outline

The frequency and impact of security breaches upon businesses have firmly placed cyber security at the heart of strategic business decisions taken by boards of directors.

Maintaining proper internal information security controls and reducing cyber security risk have become part of their responsibilities, leading to several changes to the traditional organisational structures and internal committees.
