Security Awareness Training for IT Professionals (SATI)

According to the European Network and Information Security Agency ?Awareness of the risks and available safeguards is the first line of defence for the security of information systems and networks. One of the most intriguing findings is that 95% of all security incidents involve human error. These mistakes are costly since they involve insiders who often have access to the most sensitive information. The greatest impacts of successful security attacks are exposure of sensitive data, theft of intellectual property and the introduction of malware.

IT Professionals need to find the right balance between making information available and securing the information. This course shows them how a hacker thinks and acts and how they penetrate your network. This enables your IT Professional to minimize the security risks. Besides that, this training complies your company with the information systems security legislation, like BIG (local government), BIR (government) and NEN7510 (healthcare).
