Information Security, Ethical hacking and Cybersecurity Training for Knowledge workers and Computer Users

The purpose of this training is to expose IT and Non IT professionals, knowledge and Information workers and generally all Computer users to the essentials of digital assets, information and Cyber security. This training is specifically designed for todays’ computer and information users who use the internet and the www extensively to work, study and play. This training will illustrate how digital devices, information processing, communications and data can be protected for confidentiality, integrity, and availability. Many times, the most vulnerable area of a company is the lack of understanding of the potential cybersecurity threats by employees, including upper management. This training is aimed at combating those threats, as it is important for companies to establish a security culture that takes threats seriously and promotes systematic processes that teach people how to protect the information they work with every day. Additionally, this training will illustrate how it is essential to have Cybersecurity awareness training policies and procedures in place, that are always an essential tool used to comply with mandatory IT security audits.

About the workshop

This training program is aimed at equipping the participants with the necessary knowledge and skills required by Information workers in relation to Cybersecurity and Cybercrime. It will also equip them with the necessary knowledge required to protect their information and Digital assets. The training is designed to interactively empower the participant with the whole gamut of Cybersecurity, digital and information security threats that they face ranging from identity theft and credit card fraud to their physical safety. The skills acquired during this training will not only help the participants to identify these threats but also to mitigate them effectively. In today’s knowledge equipped working environment, the internet is the road map to communication but we all know that accessing it opens your systems to both the Cybersecurity and Cybercrime world. Statistics say that 8 out 10 organisations have in one way or the other been hacked.  Hackers always target the most vulnerable assets in an organisation (the non IT professionals). Unfortunately, although this is a fact, organisations haven’t taken it upon themselves to train and sensitise them about the Cybersecurity and Cybercrime world. This training is designed for all those professionals and knowledge workers who are exposed to internet through the www, social media, data theft, credit card fraud, Password security, Email security and all those that require the safe use and browsing of the Internet whether on company resources or on their personal devices that have become part of our everyday life. This Information Security & Cybersecurity Training will outline the tactics that hacker’s take that could compromise the security of a company and its client’s data. This training is designed to also outline how a company’s security awareness program should be designed to identify those policies and procedures that relate to information security awareness and the controls that employees are required to follow.
