Webinar: Free Cybersecurity Training with customised Learning Paths

14 Apr 2020

An increasing number of organisations and industry sectors rely on IT as they realise the benefits of digitisation. But along with these benefits come increasing risks of exposure to cyber-attacks. Financial costs from service interruption, data theft and reputational loss can be harmful, especially for SMEs with limited resources. 

Cybersecurity training that is risk-centric is one of the most effective ways to mitigate the risk of attacks in any organisation reliant on IT, especially when it comes to advanced cyber range platforms. These new platforms offer a simulated environment of cyber incidents and attacks so IT professionals can hone their skills and prepare for real-world circumstances. 

This webinar on 22.04.2020 zooms in on the Capacity Building Platform, a risk-centric, practical approach to cybersecurity, designed to train employees at various levels, from basic knowledge for non-IT staff to vulnerability and threat analysts, all the way up to decision-making IT professionals, such as information security risk managers, heads of information security and chief information security officers. This latter group can customise the training material, define training exercises and expected outcomes, as well as divide staff into cyber-attack and defence teams. 

The webinar is also an opportunity to learn how to join the Open Pilot Scheme and get free training and support, whether you are a newcomer to cyber training or an experienced IT specialist.
