Why Choose this Training Course?

The Cybersecurity threats and risks have become omnipresent, at least in the news cycles. However, although the news tends to over exaggerate or better yet hyper exaggerate the actual level of risks and threats, they are there, and they can create a lot of problems to many industries and entities.

As mentioned in the news, if the entity does not suffer any consequences in terms of asset damage or any other harm, due to the media focus on cyber security it can suffer heavily in terms of reputation. The examples of Facebook, Cambridge Analytica and other companies just emphasize how important it is to keep your cyber security risk in check.
