Course Overview

This course covers the essential working practices and guidelines to help you protect your information and identity confidently.

Information Security is one of several business risks that management must address as part of its day-to-day responsibilities.

The simplest and most efficient solution to avoiding a major incident is incorporating information security into the day-to-day operations of the institution and making it part of the culture.
