IT governance ensures that computers, networks and indeed all things technology are managed internally in pursuit of a company’s mission and goals.

Information security rests on the concept of CIA (Confidentiality, Integrity & Availability) a security model that has been developed to help organisations think about various parts of IT security.

As the cyber security field evolves, organisations are turning to IT security benchmarks and accreditations such as Cyber Essentials to demonstrate that they are taking the proper steps to protect their computer systems and data.

This short e-learning programme will ensure that you understand the importance of IT governance and what it entails.

What You Will Learn

With interactive learning activities, knowledge checks and key reminder messages, the programme covers the following:

  • IT vulnerabilities & attacks
  • The concept of CIA
  • Cyber Essentials & Cyber Essentials Plus
  • Benefits of Cyber Essentials
  • 10 Steps to cyber security

You can take each section at your own pace, picking up where you left off and are able to see your progress throughout.

The programme concludes with an assessment. Your score will be recorded and 'super-user' reporting functionality for the organisation as a whole is available in the MBL learning platform.
