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 with examples from industry. Having a good knowledge of security risks, and how to mitigate them, will empower you to deliver better service and add business value. In most cases you will be able to build value, while not spending more, even cost-cutting?

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 and help revitalize your security policy. As well as implementing security controls in the SME environment (target companies 20-500 employees).
