Course Description

Employees working in the UK commercial and third sector companies of any size need to be aware of the requirements for information security.

A good understanding and awareness of information security set expectations that any company would expect of its employees in protecting its valuable assets. Information security is increasingly becoming critically important and good practices will ultimately benefit the company and its customers.
