Cybercrime and cyber crisis management

Presented by Mindgrove


High–profile technology issues are in the news – a business being hacked, a company being stopped in its tracks because it is under attack, or somebody coming to harm because of a stolen identity. This course will help you better understand cybercrime, cyber incident handling and the controls that must be in place to help protect your organisation.

Who should attend?

All are welcome to attend – including those who do not have any specialist IT auditing skills.

What will I learn?

Upon completion you will be able to:

  • understand more about the current nature of cyber threats
  • know more about how the organisation can and should defend itself.

The course is accompanied by a manual that includes key course notes.
