The cyber threat is simply part of doing business in the 21st century. The PGI team has been helping our clients to manage this risk by supporting the development of cyber security capabilities. We usually begin helping organisations by educating business leaders to understand the threat so they can make the correct investment decisions to effectively defend their organisation’s assets. They are provided with the knowledge on what capabilities exist, to help determine which might be needed.

Our extensive range of training covers the breadth of cyber security; from awareness training—that can reduce the risk by as much as 80%—to technical skills training that enables organisations to create or manage their own cyber security capability and increase staffing resource capacity. We also have extensive experience creating skills frameworks and educational syllabuses tailored to specific organisational requirements and learning objectives, including developing individual’s career paths spanning the next ten years.

  • 12 January 2022 (Exam only)
  • 10-14 January 2022 (10-12 January, remote course; 13-14 January, classroom revision and exams in Bristol)
