Intro to Cyber Essentials
Cyber Essentials is a self-certified assessment standard which allows companies of all sizes to get certified against the fundamentals of information security as outlined by GCHQ. This is achieved through a questionnaire which businesses answer and provide details about how they look after the security of their PC's, Networks and Personal Data. This does require some understanding of the topics which are being assessed in order to provide the required details.
Safonda's Intro to Cyber Security training session is designed to give key stakeholders an understanding of what is required of their IT infrastructure in advance of attempting the assessment to ensure that they have all of the required skills to not only complete the assessment but ensure that their business or its providers are adequately protecting the businesses information assets.
