Cyber security as a field is still developing at a rapid pace, with more information being discovered as time goes on. However, it is rested upon the more mature field of Information Security and there are frameworks and standards available to assist in protection provision.

There is no end to the learning process. Once a leader says – what is there new for me to learn – his/ her ability to arouse motivation in followers might be that much more limited because a very important parameter would get sidelined – the changing nature of the environment.
Accordingly, at regular intervals, leaders/managers must engage themselves in “contemplation” – through programmes like these.
Directors and managers who wish to gain a holistic understanding of Cyber Security and Information Governance for practical use and serve as a basis for future tailored training/courses.
