Cyber Awareness

A one day classroom based course providing the basic tools and techniques to helping your organisation tackle cyber security risks

Cyber insecurity poses a real risk for companies’ reputations, bottom lines and share prices. Successful attacks can disrupt business operations and production cycles, cause products to fail and result in customers losing confidence in you as a supplier. The rise in cybercrime is also noticeable for small businesses; they’re now experiencing incident levels previously only seen in larger organisations.

GCHQ Certified Training (GCT) helps individuals and organisations quickly identify high quality relevant cyber security training courses.

Why was GCT Introduced?
The UK Government has identified a significant shortage of skilled cyber security professionals and Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is working with other government departments to address this issue.

GCHQ is one of the three UK Intelligence and Security Agencies, along with MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) and provides assistance on the security of Government communications and electronic data.

APMG certifies our course material, the trainers and administration processes surrounding the course – forming a truly comprehensive assessment process.

What is the Benefit of Choosing a GCT Course?

  • Individuals and organizations can easily and quickly identify high quality, relevant training
  • The course materials have been rigorously assessed against the exacting standards of GCHQ
  • The quality of the trainers’ delivery and the course administration has been quality checked
  • GCT is based on the industry-respected IISP Skills Framework
  • GCT is invaluable for anyone seeking to acquire or improve their cyber security skills, including those seeking CESG Certified Professional status.

Why it’s important
Cyber security skills are essential to any organisation committed to addressing the increasing risk from a cyber-attack, therefore, educating employees will reduce the chances of your business becoming a victim of today's cyber security threats. Security reports and surveys continue to show the human element is a major contributor in successful cyber-attacks.

What it covers
