Accurate, up-to-date and uncorrupted information is critical to the survival and successful operation of all businesses and organisations. Such information, therefore, is a valuable commodity and attracts a variety of threats. Much of this information could be of use to organisational rivals or those intent on destroying the organisation through acts of economic sabotage. Unauthorised access by outsiders to the stored data can be prevented quite easily; however, studies show that most information leaks, either deliberate or accidental, can be traced to sources inside the organisation.
This course is designed to make employees aware of the importance of effectively securing information, and explains the ways they can ensure the security of confidential and sensitive information in the workplace.
