Information Security Essentials (GDP)

About the course


This course is intended to communicate and convey a thorough understanding of information security principles. Human behaviour is often the weakest link in an organization’s security framework. This is frequently the single most important vulnerability exploited by attackers to compromise an organization’s systems.

This course will teach you how to protect your data, your identity, and detect suspicious activity. The course will also go over how good security practices can keep your organization safe from malicious attacks.

Course Outlines

Who Should Attend?

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to understand how security attacks happen and how to protect oneself and the organisation against them. It will help all employees, at any level, to understand and recognise attacks, leading to lower chances of a successful attack compromising the organisation’s data and systems.

Course Objectives

This course will help the participant understand why information security is fundamental to a healthy company. The course will go into detail about how and why security incidents happen and how to protect yourself, and the organisation against them. The course focuses on answering simple, but important questions about information security and what one can do to counter the most common threats.

Course Content

Questions answered in this short course include:

  • What is Information Security?
  • What is a security incident?
  • Why do security incidents happen?
  • Who are the attackers?
  • How are security attacks done?
  • How do I protect my data and identity?
  • What is Social Engineering and why should I care?
  • How do I notice a security attack?
  • What should I do if I notice an ongoing security attack?
  • How can I stay secure and stop becoming a victim?

A number of case studies will also be discussed during the course to help attendees understand the implications of each threat and how they relate to real-life scenarios.


Through lack of knowledge of security best practices, humans are frequently the leading cause of a security incident. This course will effectively turn the organisation’s biggest security risk, the human element, into an effective early-warning system as employees will more frequently report the security incidents before they have a chance of compromising the company.

Delegates successfully completing the course will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
