NICF- Cyber Security for ICT Professionals

Overview

As organisations embrace the digital revolution, so do cyber criminals. Malicious cyber activities have evolved in sophistication, and stealth and teamwork are required to counter this. Not only cybersecurity professionals, ICT professionals too need to play their part in helping their organisations protect their assets from the ever-pervasive cyber threats.

The objective of this course is not to turn ICT professionals into cybersecurity professionals, but to equip them with sufficient cybersecurity knowledge so that they can incorporate security into their work at the outset rather than as an afterthought or, worse still, not at all.

This course is not recommended for those who have already attended NICF- AISP Qualified Information Security Professional Course

This course is part of the CyberSecurity Series offered by NUS-ISS.
