Training Overview

Eliminate years of cybersecurity headaches at your organization. Learn how to stop data threats, and earn a certification.

As the pandemic wages on, hackers are becoming more desperate, savvy, and successful in taking advantage of organizations’ valuable data. Personnel records, trade secrets, and confidential customer information are all low-hanging fruit for digital thieves.

Hastily-configured remote access solutions to enable employees to work from home offer paths into organizational networks. The increasing use of cloud applications and sharing of confidential information between staff members and vendors create additional opportunities for hackers to exploit.

Simultaneously, information technology team members are stretched thin, giving them less time to plug holes and forcing employees to find independent cloud solutions. Human resources professionals, business leaders, managers, and other staff members must master the foundational concepts of data security and collaborate to prevent a disastrous breach.

Our Electronic Data Security 101 Certification program will enable you to:

  • Discover current cybersecurity threats and how to stop them
  • Protect your organization from legal, financial, and reputational liability
  • Prove your knowledge to colleagues, managers, and regulators
  • Earn a prestigious certification and advance your career

We have packed a large volume of interesting and helpful content into five engaging webinars that provide a foundation of current data security knowledge.
