Cyber Security Threats, Assessment & Management
An exciting and informative course, delivered by a world renowned expert. This course presents a counter-point to the more formal and rigid ISO approach to cyber security. The course is not about firewalls and industry standards - it is about how attackers effectively target and hack organisations without being stopped by expensive technical defences, and without financial backing. The key to almost every effective cyber-attack is exploiting the human workforce. As such, the course concentrates on information security and the power of visible data, rather than the traditional focus on IT security. The course simultaneously provides candidates with the investigative capabilities to probe the data vulnerabilities in their own staff, corporations and networks - though no technical knowledge is assumed. It is delivered by a former UK intelligence officer who specialises in tracking targets and organisations with open source tools.
