Certified Digital Forensics Training Courses

Activities, actions and communications, that leave a data trace on the Internet or on a computer or other digital device, mean that a digital footprint now features in just about every part of our personal and business lives. As authors of the ACPO Guide for Computer Based Electronic Evidence Handling, we are uniquely positioned to offer a range of courses detailing how to conduct forensic investigations, manage during or after a cyber incident, and perform malware investigations on a variety of platforms and devices.

Certified Software Security Training Courses

It is much less expensive to build secure software than to correct security issues after the software has been completed or the costs that may be associated with a security breach. We can train your developers to be better coders and take some of the strain off the rest of the IT team. Throughout the course we will look at examples of the types of flaws that secure coding protects against, examine how the flaw might be exploited and then focus on how these can be addressed to make secure applications.

Help your developers gain the skills to improve your security posture

Information Security Training Courses

Information security is fundamentally about safeguarding information and information systems from unauthorised access, use and disclosure. Our Information Security Training Courses offer individuals and organisations the skills to protect assets, implement ISO27001 and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), achieve compliance and maintain certification.

Learn the skills to progress across a range of information security facets

Security Awareness Training Courses

According to the 2014 Information Security Breaches Survey the cost of a cyber security incident often now reaches six-figures, without accounting for any damage or loss to a company’s reputation which could lead to a further dramatic loss of profit or future business. Educating your workforce and raising user awareness is therefore the first step you need to take to protect your business.

Be prepared by gaining an awareness of the security threats to your organisation
