What is included in Governance of Information Security

Course Description

Information Security is a critical topic given the huge amount of information that is handled electronically and the associated risks of mobile communications, the internet, portable storage devices and cybercrime. Implementing effective security is, however a challenge because the topic is complex and technical, poorly understood and often not addressed in a business-like or systematic manner.

This course provides a broad range of stakeholders and roleplayers with an appreciation of how to drive the implementation of an effective information security improvement programme driven systematically by business needs. Using an “information security management system” approach combined with governance and management practices it will enable participants to ensure that implementation has appropriate support from board level and senior executive management and addresses security in a sustainable and practical way.
