We built this course starting with a contemporary definition of Information Security: It helps to protect information, both electronic and paper-based. from unauthorised access, amendment, misuse, theft and disaster, and it ensures that information systems work as intended.
In todays workplace its not just about stopping hackers stealing data. Its about using digital resources, such as social media, across the board – to protect the organisation and individuals.
