Information & Cyber Security for Managers - EXIN Certification

Programme Code: CRS-N-0046407


This module is part of the Advanced Certificate in Data Protection Operational Excellence programme.

It provides participants with an understanding and hands on approach to information and cyber security from a management perspective.

The module answers 7 questions that all managers should be asking if to protect info security assets:

  • What information does my department / function holds that needs to be secured?
  • What is the value of those information assets? What are the risks?
  • What are the organisational security policies in place?
  • Do I know what needs to be done if there is a security incident?
  • What are the security measures already in place (including staff training)?
  • Can my business function continue to operate if there is a security incident?
  • Are there any compliance requirements that can get me into trouble?

Participants will be able to create Information Security Policy, manage compliance using the online Data Protection Management System via a hands-on and practical based approach to secure your organisation and respond to incidents. The course has a heavy focus on hands-on activities (aided by a bundled data protection management system called DPMS) and assignments which are given to the participants based on ISO27001/02.  (Participants have the option to sit for Exin's Infosecurity IS027001 Foundation exam - payable separately)
