Information Security

The loss or theft of sensitive or valuable information can have a damaging impact on you, your organisation, your portfolio companies or indeed your investors/LPs.

Information breaches result from both internal and external actions and may be deliberate or accidental. The threat posed by cyber-crime alone to the security of information is growing and constantly evolving; it is estimated that the global cost of cyber-crime is anywhere between £200bn and £350bn annually, the cost to the UK is somewhere between £20-35bn.

This programme provides an overview of the key risks and threats to information security and actions that can be taken to protect and safeguard information. Information security and data protection are intrinsically linked, we recommend that you also undertake the Data Protection course alongside this programme.
