Meeting the Cyber Security Challenge - A Virtual Learning Journey 2021
Have you faced a cyber incident? Are you and your institution ready to face the security challenges of today’s wired world?
Today, cyber security requires the tools and skills to respond to evolving threats.

Our highly interactive flagship cyber security course can help organizations, institutions and governments meet these modern challenges and minimise their impact. By examining social and political responses to cyber security challenges in conjunction with technical solutions, this course can equip you with the tools needed to face the cyber security problematique.
