APMG launches IT-Security Foundation course

APMG launched the IT-Security Foundation course wordwide!

A complete overview of the fundamentals of IT Security

The global IT Security skills shortage, and resulting high demand for security professionals, makes this an attractive sector to work in. This course is a great starting point for those wishing to enter IT Security as it provides a comprehensive introduction and the course does not include technical labs.

Discover the language, processes and tools used in IT environments in this vendor-neutral course. Learn about the components (systems, software and networks) which make up IT infrastructure, how those components function, the vulnerabilities each component can have and how those vulnerabilities can be mitigated. This course also explains how cryptography can assist in securing IT infrastructure and the other tools you can use to protect your organisation.

During this course you will benefit from the insights of practicing cybersecurity specialists, with core topics illustrated through practical examples. By the end of the course, participants will understand the essential principles of IT Security. The course typically takes two days.
