Aim of the Course:
The course introduces participants to the fundamentals of cyber security; creating a framework for businesses to protect themselves against the common cyber threats seen online.
In today’s data-driven, highly distributed world, companies now use the internet to undertake the very basic of business tasks, to advertise and sell, find new markets, customers and staff, communicate with customers and suppliers, process financial transactions, amongst others.
The Internet brings huge business opportunities and benefits; it also brings some security risks. It is increasingly important to manage these risks to take advantage of the internet whilst protecting your business.
Every day there are attacks on the IT systems of Nigerian companies like yours, attempting to steal information and money, or disrupt business activities. More customers are now demanding that their suppliers are secure, making cyber security a business necessity for companies.
This course provides a good practice foundation on cyber security risk management for business owners and managers to protect computer-based equipment and information from unintended or unauthorised access, change, theft or destruction.
Who Should Attend:
The course is suitable for every individual / business that uses a computer or any Internet enabled device. This course is essential for all organisations, of all sizes, and in all sectors. This includes companies in the private sector, entrepreneurs, business owners, SMEs, general non-IT professionals, universities, charities, and public sector organisations.
Participants will gain first-rate taught and practical experiences from industry leading trainers through lectures, workshops, DIY sessions & use of real-time case studies.
Specifically, participants will gain knowledge on:
- What cyber security is, how it affects businesses and why you should care;
- The threats to how you do business and how they affect you as an individual;
- How attacks happen and terms such as ‘phishing’ and ‘hacking’
- The possible impacts of cyber attacks on you, your organisation, your employees and your customers;
- Risk Management: Preventing Cyber attacks
- What you can do to mitigate these impacts
Hear from Previous Participants
There are 3.9 billion Internet users globally, meaning the world has become a lot more connected than ever before. With so many people connected together in one big bubble called the World Wide Web, there has and always will be a challenge with security & privacy. It is now important that individuals implement the most basic security measures regardless of if they are at work, in education or at home. Our lives have become too digitally connected for us not to take the relevant steps to ensure cyber security.
These security practices are as important as locking your doors or putting your cash in a safe. “You wouldn’t leave your front door open overnight for people to steal possessions so don’t do it online.”
What is directly at risk? Your money, your information, your reputation, your IT equipment and your IT based services. Information is an asset that can take many forms: client lists, customer databases, your financial details, your customers’ financial details, deals you are making or considering, your pricing information, product designs or manufacturing processes. There is a risk to your IT services and information wherever they are stored, whether held offline on your in-house computer or stored online in the clouds.
Analysis shows the majority of online threats could be prevented if businesses put basic security measures in place and train employees on Cyber Security.
This course will enlighten delegates to many of these security measures, including the five key controls organisations must have in place to protect against common Internet-based threats. You will learn how to manage your online security in the same way you would protect any other aspect of your business.
I contacted Rhics about a web design project, they quickly sent me one of their consultant who was very helpful. In a matter of days my emails were up and running I had myy logo and branding designed, and my website followed a couple of weeks later. They are expert designers, very efficient, professional and affordable: a combination that is very difficult to find these days. I highly recommend them. www.101bookreviews.comGreg Loades
