Who Should Attend This Course?

Right now, cyber security is an excellent career choice because there is a huge demand for workers with these talents.

High employability and attractive compensation are two key advantages of a successful cyber security job. Plus, there will always be space for development if you choose this method. You'll be continuously learning new skills and trying to understand new technology.

Cyber security has grown into a vast and lucrative business with enormous growth potential in the coming years. While there are a variety of cybersecurity jobs to pick from, nearly all of them pay well over five figures due to the industry's importance to our society's level of living.

Malaysia still lacks local talents in cyber security. This means that you will have a bright future if you enter this field. Financial institutions and large companies are always in the hunt for cyber security experts.

Why Do You Need To Join This Course?

Cyber security is much more than a matter of IT. Companies will no longer have to be concerned about unauthorised people accessing their network or data thanks to cyber security. It helps them protect both their customers and their employees. Even if security does not prevent an attack or breach, it does speed up the recovery process.

According to statistics shared by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), Malaysia is one of the best ranking countries in the ASEAN region based on potential in the cyber-security industry with anticipated demand for 10,500 cyber-security talents in Malaysia by 2020.

This shows that a career in cyber security is indeed a great choice of career to be explored. There are numerous cybersecurity roles and job titles to choose from. Cyber security experts are needed in every industry, from merchants to banks to governments, to protect sensitive data.

The purpose of this course is to provide individuals with the essential knowledge and skills to protect their information assets against social engineering. This course will immerse students in a learning environment where they will acquire a fundamental understanding of various computer and network security threats.

Some examples include identity theft, online phishing scams, virus and backdoors, emails hoaxes, loss of confidential information, hacking attacks, and social engineering. More importantly, the skills learned from the course will help students take the necessary steps to mitigate their security exposure.

At the end of this course, learners will be able to understand:

  • What does “information security” means.
  • Types of information (e.g. confidential, private, sensitive, etc.), forms and locations of the information that are responsible for safeguarding.
  • How to safeguard against unauthorised access to information, information systems, and secure facilities/locations.
  • How to safeguard against unauthorised use of information and information systems.
  • Best practices related to securely storing information, securely disposing and sanitising information and information systems.
