Demystifying Cybercrime (for non-technical audiences)
Cybercrime is on the rise and it now plays a role in more than half of all financial crimes. It also features widely in many other forms of crime, from trafficking to attacks on critical national infrastructure. Unfortunately, most courses addressing this topic are aimed at those with a background in information systems and a good grasp of the jargon.
This course, which we are proud to announce is accredited by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), has been designed from the ground up for everyone else. Using simple analogies and practical activities anyone can comfortably participate in, we demystify the complex and provide clear, non-technical guidance for audiences drawn from any sector and any role.
