Course Description

Generally when security is seen as a blocker, it means it is not understood. Simply keeping systems available is part of security. The landscape has changed over the last five years, but has your view of security changed with it?

This course focuses on key topics and examples from industry. Having a good knowledge of security, and how to apply it, will empower you to deliver better service and add business value. Several items covered in this course are aimed at cost-cutting without losing value.

Many people focus on ‘hacks’, however, that is not the main aim here. This course will help you to develop something that you can use right after the workshop, including ensuring that you can understand evaluate and contribute to a security policy. As well as implementing security controls in the SME environment (target companies 20-500 employees).
