A 1 day masterclass held at venues across the UK, this course is one of our Essential Business Toolkit Series.

This course serves as an introduction to the exciting field of cybersecurity.

As our daily lives become more and more dependent on Internet-based tools and services, and as those platforms accumulate more of our most sensitive data, the demand grows for knowledge in the field of cybersecurity, especially for those with a non-IT background.

Our lives depend on online services. It is essential that we all acquire cyber security knowledge and skills, to help protect our digital life. We shop online. We work online. We play online. We live online. As our lives increasingly depend on digital services, the need to protect our information from being maliciously disrupted or misused, is really important, both for us as individuals, and equally, for the organisations and businesses that we work in.
