  • Cyber Security Concepts
  • Risk Management
  • Security Architecture
  • Implementing security in networks, endpoint systems, applications and data
  • Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning
  • Incident Response

The key objective of the Practitioner module  is for each participant to be able to apply the theory learnt from the Foundation course to a case study. During this module you will:

  • Develop an asset register
  • Identify threats and determine risks, and make recommendations
  • Create a data classification scheme and use this for managing risks with cloud solutions
  • Identify and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different encryption technologies
  • List and prioritise busines- critical operations for business continuity
  • Identify and discuss various approaches to security assurance
  • Identify risk remediation strategies and include in a brief management report

  • Anyone planning to work in a position that requires cyber security knowledge
  • Anyone starting a career in Information / Cyber security
  • IT professionals wanting to transition their career into Cyber Security
  • Anyone with information / cyber security responsibilities

  • Professionals familiar with basic IT and information security concepts and who need to round out their knowledge
