Education and normalisation is the key to tackling the cyber threat Part 3

Education and normalisation is the key to tackling...

To quote one FTSE 100 CEO:  “this debate is controlling us, not vice versa”.  Effective education, underpinned by informed investment in the right things at the right time will place control of the debate, as well as the solution, back in the right hands. 

PGI aims to be a major contributor in helping to normalise the cyber security threat.

All of our instructors are established cyber-security professionals, holding both leading industry certificates and have a wealth of real-world experience.  They combine their teaching with daily operational activity keeping their knowledge and training material fully up to date and relevant.

Whether you are a small company or a large organisation, we have the skills, experience and expertise to offer businesses and governments tailored solutions that will make the difference in tackling the threats posed by cybercrime.

PGI believes in education and awareness. In addition to training Cyber Security professionals, Cybersecurity education and training for mainstream IT professionals, users and executives stand at the core of our posture. To assist with this, PGI opened its Bristol-based, state of the art Cyber Academy. The Academy is a custom-built, multi-functional learning environment, offering the most sophisticated training on the market in techniques for cyber defence, cyber threat intelligence analysis and organisational leadership roles, with training delivered both on and offsite.

Increasing awareness and education should hopefully see governments, law enforcement agencies, businesses and the general public adopt the right posture.  It is nothing to be complacent about, but nor is it anything to fear.  It is simply the modern risks of operating the 21st Century.
