The Cyber Security Awareness training provides a good general picture of what cybercrime entails, how you can get involved and most importantly: how to make a difference in the fight against cybercrime.

The cyber security risks that individuals and organisations face, are generally bigger higher than expected. The almost weekly media reports on large hacks, and the damage caused by these cyber attacks reach to amount to more than 500 billion euros annually worldwide. In addition to technical measures, such as virus scanners and firewalls, cyber security depends mainly on the employees themselves. This course helps to strengthen the so-called ‘human firewall’.
