Cyber attacks are incredibly common, with around four in ten businesses and one in four charities reporting that they experienced a cyber attack during 2020. These attacks have become increasingly more frequent in recent years as malicious actors attempt to access sensitive data or disrupt critical infrastructure.
Maintaining good cyber security practices, including providing cyber security awareness training to staff, is an essential information security measure that all organisations should take. By doing so, they can help to protect the sensitive information stored on their computer networks and prevent any new and emerging threats, such as ransomware and cryptojacking attacks, from affecting their systems.
This cyber security course provides learners with an introduction to cyber security and attacks, and explores some of the measures they can take to protect themselves and their organisation. It is designed for anyone who uses computer systems at work, regardless of their role or industry.
Cyber crime is highly disruptive, and can cause significant damage to an organisation. For example, it may cause downtime or affect the organisation's reputation and operations. A successful cyber attack may also put an organisation in breach of several pieces of legislation, such as the UK General Data Protection Regulation and the Network and Information Systems Regulations 2018, which may result in additional costs.
Providing cyber security training to staff, and making them aware of how they can maintain good cyber and network security, is an essential step in preventing cyber crime and the significant costs associated with it.
