CPD – Cybersecurity for the User: Protecting Yourself/Business/Organization from Cyberthreats

As technology is increasing, so too is the use of technology in virtually every profession. Whether it be the use of IT to manage client data, artificial intelligence software to scan documents or the use of various technology-based communications, it is important to understand that threats to those holding sensitive data are on the rise. There is an obligation both ethically and legally to protect such data. There is also a duty to have a process set in place to ensure that incident response is appropriate, timely and detected. TechnoEdge Learning is committed to providing organizations and the owners of businesses of all sizes the knowledge to mitigate online risks and respond to an incidence appropriately.
