New Foundation course in Incident Response Management

IT security specialists, IT Governance (www.itgovernance.co.uk) has developed a new training course on Incident Response Management (https://tinyurl.com/yb6w2u5p) to help companies comply with GDPR and the NIS Directive. The new Foundation course is designed to provide organisations with the foundational knowledge to effectively manage and respond to a disruptive incident, and guides delegates in the appropriate steps organisations need to take to limit potential disruption to both network availability and an information security management system (ISMS).
 
Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “The GDPR and NIS Directive introduce obligations on organisations to deal with information security incidents and report data breaches to the relevant supervisory authority without undue delay. Therefore, organisations will need to be prepared and equipped to deal with incidents. While data protection and cyber security are on the board’s agenda, professionals often lack the training and practical understanding to deal with incidents in an efficient and appropriate manner.  It is essential that professionals get the appropriate training to be able to confidently deal with an incident and help organisations avoid reputational and financial damage.” 
 
Delegates attending the Incident Response Management Foundation training course will learn about effectively managing a cyber security incident from detection to follow-up, the incident scenarios for the most common attack vectors, the role of the incident response team, the key steps to tackle a cyber security incident, how to formulate an incident response plan, and how to prepare communications and reporting as per the GDPR and NIS Directive requirements.
