The risk and severity of cyber-attacks have grown over the past few years due to the continuous advancement of technology. The “new normal” resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic has also accelerated technological adoption while exposing cyber vulnerabilities and the unpreparedness of organisations to deal with these vulnerabilities. According to the World Economic Forum, cyber-attacks are considered among the top three threats to global stability. Recent research and industry analysis conducted by the e-Crime Bureau on IT security of various industries including public sector, financial/insurance, aviation, education, manufacturing, communication, etc. in Ghana clearly indicate that IT infrastructure of organisations is being targeted by criminals, affecting the operations of these institutions.
The Certificate in Cyber Security Training is designed to equip participants on emerging trends of cybercrime, the domain of cyber security, and the impact of cyber security threats on institutions and national security at large. Various countermeasures on how to secure data and precautions that organisations can take to minimise losses and safeguard the IT environment will be addressed. The course will also introduce participants to cyber security governance mechanisms and best practices.
The main objectives of the course are to:
- To provide participants with the knowledge to establish the nexus between cyber criminality and other transnational crimes
- To equip participants to identify the various forms of cyber-attacks and attack methodologies used by cybercriminals
- To provide practical methods to foster a proactive cyber security management culture of institutions
- To ensure that organisations have the relevant professional skills to develop comprehensive cyber security programmes for institutions to deal with the short, medium to long term cyber risks
- To provide the requisite tools to evaluate and manage the security of IT systems
- To understand cyber security risk management and governance structures and the role of employees and department in reducing cyber risks.
