100% Online, Fully Flexible

Why Cyber Security for Directors is Essential 

Cyber threats and attacks post one of the most immediate and long-term threats to organisations. Harness your knowledge and awareness of the key risks to ensure they receive the right attention.


According to global research on the state of security in 2022, 65% of organisations have reported an increase in cyber attacks in recent times.


Cyber threats are constantly evolving. The impact of an incident can be catastrophic to an organisation. Cyber security protection is now a key strategic issue for boards.


Organisations that know how to respond quickly to an incident significantly reduce the impact it has on the business. Acting in a fast and timely manner is critical.

Become the cyber security champion in your organisation with the skills and knowledge to understand the resources required to deal with potential cyber threats and attacks.
