Cyber Security Training

Cyber security has become one of the biggest single issues for organisations trading online. Supply chains are now so interwoven that one weak link in information and network security can compromise security among all participating partners.

Companies are finding themselves caught in a difficult position. Regulatory, market, and moral pressures are now creating a need to reap all the business benefits from the information security standard ISO/IEC 27001. Many organisations eventually need to get ISO/IEC 27001 compliance through accrediting third parties.

That's why E RADAR is running a set of three Cyber Security Training master classes to help you and your staff understand the security risks around information management and network security. Each masterclass provides a different level of security experience, from basic through intermediary to advanced.

Trainer is Dr Daniel Dresner, a recognised specialist in IT security, standards and information governance.

What will the Cyber Security Training cover?

1. Basic Level - IS/IT Risk Seminar

Duration: Half Day

We aim the Seminar at organisations starting out on the security journey and which want to kick-start appropriate attitudes towards a new IS/IT programme or supporting other staff training programmes.

Topics covered:

  • What are the key issues?
  • What tools can help?
  • Good practice and 'best endeavours' techniques
  • Assessing risks and how to treat them
  • How to deal with inevitable security incidents and assure business continuity.

2. Intermediary Level - Interactive Awareness Workshop

Duration: Half Day

The workshop looks at the risk of those working inside your organisation who are likely to be the main source of security breaches.

Topics covered:

  • Business/service continuity;
  • Data sharing;
  • Information as an asset;
  • Internet;
  • Policies;
  • Reducing risk of ID theft (like Phishing);
  • Regulation;
  • SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition);
  • Taking responsibility not being a human vulnerability;
  • Threats and impacts of loss and leakage;
  • Where to go for help;

What happens?

Short sessions for up to 25 participants offer an opportunity to get involved. A pre-session questionnaire gets staff in the mood and a post-session 'crib-sheet' of reminders takes the message onwards. Each session includes a live assessment of the people .v. technology and process status of your information risk culture.

We can tailor the briefing to include any specific risks that your organisation faces.

3. Advanced: Security Risk To Treatment Workshop

Duration: 1 Day

This intensive Workshop aims to deliver a pragmatic framework for risk management

Topics covered:

  • Navigating standards, best practice and compliance;
  • The CIA (and N) of security;
  • Risk: don't let assessments stop you!
  • Balancing the technology with the human vulnerabilities in information security.

What happens?

A 'soup to nuts' workshop, applying the lessons of ISO/IEC 27001 (BS 7799) and related standards. Useful whether your organisation is seeking certification. Practical action templates to keep you applied and focused.

Benefits of attending:

  • Leave with a comprehensive understanding of security in the context of your business/service;
  • Find opportunities for quick wins to make immediate improvements to security;

Needed if . . .

  • You need to develop business-led security policies;
  • You need to benchmark current policies with best practice;
  • You would like a more formal approach to risk management that integrates business values with the more headline grabbing IT risks such as viruses and hackers.

Who will benefit from the Masterclass?

Our cyber security masterclasses are suitable for any organization, large or small, in any sector or part of the world. For those organisations with little or no experience of cyber security we recommend joining the starter masterclass.

We tailor our intermediate and advanced masterclasses towards those who are looking to comply with formal standards, such as ISO 27001, The standard is particularly suitable where safeguarding of information is critical, such as in the finance, health, public and IT sectors.

ISO/IEC 27001 is also highly effective for organizations which manage information on behalf of others, such as IT outsourcing companies: You can use the standard to assure customers that you are protecting their information to an acceptable level.
