Online course for SMEs

Is your organ­i­sa­tion suf­fi­ciently secure? New legal require­ments, a growing and ever more strongly net­worked IT com­plexity, an increasing use of mobile tech­nology, a move towards cloud use, plus organ­ised crime on the Internet – all these make secu­rity, and above all IT secu­rity, an absolute must. Take this course to learn which steps and mea­sures you can take to sig­nif­i­cantly strengthen your organisation’s IT security.

When a system fails, this can fre­quently and rapidly lead to major con­se­quences, which may even threaten an organisation’s exis­tence (e. g. due to pro­duc­tion losses and resul­tant lost turnover). Dis­clo­sure of sen­si­tive infor­ma­tion can also have far-reaching con­se­quences for organ­i­sa­tions (e. g. damage to their rep­u­ta­tion); some­thing which they can only recover from with much effort and dif­fi­culty, if at all.

And it is not just large cor­po­ra­tions which are tar­geted in attacks, but very fre­quently SMEs, too. It is these com­pa­nies in par­tic­ular which often lack the time resources and pro­fes­sional com­pe­tence required enabling them to prop­erly deal with issues involving IT secu­rity and data protection.
