Course Description

Businesses today are constantly facing new risks, and it can be challenging to keep up with the changes in technology and best practices for protecting your business. With the onset of the COVID-19 virus and the shutdown of the worldwide economy what new risks exist for businesses. The criminals came up with new scams within days of the virus outbreak.

One of the most effective ways to ensure your organization is taking the correct steps to mitigate risks is to develop a set of internal controls that ensure your processes, policies, and procedures are designed to protect your valuable corporate assets and keep your company secure and intact.

OS

This course on IT Security was very informative. I work for a large firm, so all this is handled internally with great SPAM factors and security awareness, but for a small firm that may not have the resources, this is great information.

KH

Timely and relevant information

NB

Very timely with COVID and remote working

"While a small tax practitioner and CPA, my primary role is an IT consultant for small companies. I've attended so many of these sessions that were too generic and/or outdated as to be dangerous. I agree 100% percent with everything expressed in this session. The material's current, presentation is at a consumable level, and the advice is on point.

Excellent speaker on what could be a complex topic. Great pacing and a lot of knowledge was provide with specific recommendations which can be (and were) implemented. One of the best, high-level cyber security classes I've had.
