Course Description

This course is designed for the student that is looking for a little more than what is offered in a 1-hour Cybersecurity Awareness Class. As a member of an organization and as an IT auditor, you owe it to your clients and yourself to be aware and to have a thorough understanding of the potential consequences of not being cyber secure. Knowing what is required and the consequences of not being cyber secure will broaden your awareness while conducting your audit. Cyber security is about protecting information, which is often the most valuable asset an organization will own.

The 3 Fundamental of Cybersecurity are :

  • Confidentiality - any important data you have should only be accessible to people or by systems to who you have given permission.

  • Integrity - the assets themselves and information they contain must continue to be complete, intact and uncorrupted.

  • Availability - all systems, services and information must be accessible when required by the business or its clients.

To achieve and maintain these goals, good cyber security requires:

  • Determining the assets that are so important to the business that they need to be kept secured at all times .

  • Identifying the threats and risks.

  • Identifying the safeguards that should be put into place to deal with these threats and risks.

  • Monitoring the safeguards and assets to manage security breaches.
