Cyber Incident Planning & Response — GCHQ Certified Training - Classroom

What is the Cyber Incident Planning & Response — GCHQ Certified Training course?

Cyber Security continues to protect organisations from on-going internal and external attacks. For most companies however, Cyber Incident Management is typically an afterthought, rather than a preventative measure.

This course will help you prepare to define and manage your approach, regarding responding to an attack of information or a data breach. The course materials are designed for those in senior management roles or business executives, looking to gain a broad understanding of incident response, or involved in the planning and preparation stages for potential cyber threats.
