Information Security Training – Virtual Learning with Experts
Monday, 14 March 2022 - Wednesday, 30 March 2022
This course looks at the process of how to best select and implement security measures to effectively address an organization’s security requirements. This process involves examining three fundamental questions: (a) what assets need to be protected, (b) how those assets are threatened, and (c) what can be done to counter those threats. IT security management is the formal process of answering these questions, ensuring that critical assets are sufficiently protected in a cost-effective manner.
