Information and Cyber Security

Overview

If personal information is not recorded accurately, or is lost or disclosed to unauthorised people, then the implications for that person and for your organisation, could be extremely serious.

With the advent of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) coming into effect in May 2018, data security issues – and courses to educate people working with information – have become even more important.

Minimise the risks of a data leak and boost your information security knowledge with this short information security training course.
