The Cyber Essentials Scheme outlines government recommended and GCHQ approved controls which every single organisation should adhere to when using IT to conduct their business. Since the roll-out of the scheme in 2014, Cyber Essentials has increasingly become mandatory requirements for any organisation looking to tender for some governmental contract with a particular data sensitivity, and for all MoD contracts.
Understanding the scheme and ensuring compliance can be very costly and painful without the right help. This 1-day course starts at £400 for individuals.
The course should be attended by IT staff, and any individuals with a specific responsibility for risk management or information security within an organisation.
