About This Cyber Security Awareness Course

Our online Cyber Security Awareness course is suitable for all businesses and employees at any level. It provides users with a comprehensive knowledge of cyber threats and shares practical steps to protect computers, networks and data from unauthorised access.

The course ensures employees understand their role in enhancing and enforcing the organisation’s cyber security.

Why Is Cyber Security Awareness Important?

Technology alone cannot provide foolproof protection from cyber attacks and data breaches. Research shows that more than 90% of the data breaches involve human error. According to the IBM Data Breach Report 2023, the average cost of a data breach in 2023 was approximately £3.51 million.

Around half of all UK businesses and charities identify at least one security breach every month. These breaches can be avoided by providing cyber security training for employees at all levels. Training equips staff with the knowledge and skills to recognise, prevent and respond to cyber attacks effectively.

Our cyber security course reduces the likelihood of human error and strengthens overall defences against growing cyber threats. It includes simple and practical steps to protect computers, networks and data from unauthorised access.

Are You Aware of Your Responsibilities?

Employers have duties under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) and Network and Information Systems (NIS) Regulations 2018 to take reasonable steps to protect data, networks and systems.

They must:

  • Ensure secure processing, confidentiality, integrity and availability of personal data
  • Conduct regular risk assessments to identify cybersecurity risks
  • Implement appropriate security measures to prevent and minimise cybersecurity incidents
  • Report incidents to the relevant authority
  • Protect employees from cybersecurity threats
  • Implement security policies and procedures to reduce cyber security risks
  • Provide cyber security training to employees
  • Establish clear procedures for reporting cyber security incidents
  • Ensure timely notification of incidents to relevant stakeholders

Failure to ensure cyber security and compliance with these legislations may lead to data breaches, financial loss and reputational damage. It can also incur legal repercussions, such as fines, penalties, and prohibition notices.
