This course is delivered by NUS-ISS.

In our current digitally disrupted era, cybersecurity has now become more critical and the stakes are much higher. Daily cyber attack occurrences demonstrate the risks posed by cyber-threats – from individual, opportunistic hackers, to professional and organised cyber criminals groups with strategies to systematically steal intellectual property, disrupt businesses and even threaten our safety.

It is essential that the organisation takes control of allocating the right resources to address cyber threats, actively manage risk and prepare responses to cyber threats and incidents. This includes creating an informed and knowledgeable organisational culture.

Your employees are your first and primary line of defense against online crime. That’s where cybersecurity awareness training comes into play—equipping your employees with the knowledge and skills they need to protect themselves from criminal elements.

This course is part of the CyberSecurity and Digital Strategy & Leadership Series offered by NUS-ISS.
