Why Cyber Security?
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 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.

What our clients say
I like the style of the facilitator. Conversational with practical exercises. The overall training was Excellent!
I wish to gain customers and manage my social media pages; sharing more quality content.
I just completed the Digital Strategies for Business Growth course which was moderated by Christian. This guy is fantastic; he knows his stuff. His delivery mechanisms are fantastic. He’s very conversant with the topic and I would suggest this course to everyone. My main takeaway from this course is that it has opened my mind up to all the possibilities that the social media platforms can deliver value to my customers and as a consequence of that benefit to me and my practice.
