Cyber Security

As technology becomes integrated into most business models, cyberattacks are a major threat to most workplaces. This makes cyber security a top priority for most major businesses. But what is it exactly? Well, cyber security is the application of technologies, processes and controls to protect systems, networks, programmes, devices and data from unauthorised exploitation or attacks. Common types of cyberattacks include phishing, ransomware, malware and formjacking.

Businesses need to be vigilant when it comes to online safety. Cybe attacks can lead to severe consequences such as reputational damage (which can lead to loss of customers, sales and profits), loss of data and significant financial costs. These financial costs can be in the form of repairing affected systems, networks and devices as well as incurring fines for inadequate cyber security. So, it's easy to see why businesses are keen to invest in people that have the skills to help protect their business.

By taking an online cybersecurity course, you can learn to protect your organisation—and add valuable knowledge to your IT skillset.
