About the Course

Course Duration: 2 hours (approx.)

Cyber crime and cyber security breaches are a serious threat to all types of businesses and charities. Organisations can lose money, data or other assets and suffer both significant short-term disruption and long-term reputational damage. That’s why it’s important that all staff, especially senior leaders, have a good understanding of how to develop and implement protective measures.

This course provides you with the knowledge and skills to understand what cyber security is, the different types of cyber threats and the measures you can take to protect your organisation from harm.

Split into bite-sized modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, any time, anywhere.

Created by KryptoKloud, an independent cyber operations and intelligence company, this course is split into seven modules. The course consists of learning through video modules, completion of tasks, further reading and viewing external resources. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives from the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
