Course overview

The growth in the collection and use of data has grown exponentially over the last few years. In fact, 90 per cent of all data in existence was created in just the last two years. In light of this, the importance of ensuring that data is secure has never been more essential to personal and organisational risk management.

This course introduces you to the importance of safeguarding your individual data as well as how to use data within an organisational environment. You'll develop an understanding of the risks involved in supplying and storing data, how data is used, and what you need to know to ensure data security is not compromised.
