Cyber Security Training Courses

Cyber Smart Associates training courses aim to encourage business directors and leaders to take a serious approach to cyber security to protect the business, its stakeholders and assets from the effects of a breach. Our strategy for implementing cyber awareness is based on a simple strategy: ‘tone from the top, message from the middle’. This means to set the scene within the upper ranks of management, allowing them to use their department heads to distribute awareness throughout their teams.  In addition to the below courses we can also help you or your organisation develop a training course tailored to your specific needs.
