Information Security Essentials for Business

Learn how to counter online threats from ransomware, phishing and malware attacks.

Who’s this course for?

This intermediate level workshop will prove invaluable to a wide variety of business professionals, including owners, IT managers, CFOs/Chief Accountants and HR managers who want to protect their businesses against online threats.

  • The current NZ threat landscape and the motivations of hackers
  • What you need to be asking your head of IT, your IT vendors/partners and your suppliers
  • IT policies, user awareness and risk mitigation
  • Cybersecurity audits; penetration and vulnerability testing.

What you’ll learn:

The digital world has never been more important to business, but nor has the level of threat been higher. Theft, damage and disruption don’t just happen to someone else, they represent a real and present danger to all businesses.

This half-day workshop, delivered in partnership with Kaon Security, imparts the knowledge you need to assess whether your information and systems are safe.

The course will open your eyes to the different types of threat. It covers controlling physical access to the hardware, as well as protecting against harm that may come via network access. You’ll learn about data and code rejection, and how malpractice by operators can affect your system.
