The severe threat of malicious activity such as hacking, defamation of privacy and denial-of-service attacks are becoming more recognised - firms of all sizes are raising security measures and adapting their internal systems to ensure they are integrating the latest cyber threat intelligence.

Just how much of a role do people place in risky behaviour?

User negligence and human error is at the heart of the cyber crime problem, and a lack of employee understanding can be highly damaging. Organisations can fight and prevent such incidents by building awareness and educating staff. If you want to protect yourself and your firm from these growing threats, our qualifications and CPD offerings can help you.

The CISI Level 3 Award in Managing Cyber Security, provides candidates with a basic knowledge of the threat of cyber crime. Candidates will be able to evaluate the risks to the financial services profession, and develop effective security solutions to prevent, detect and mitigate cyber attacks.

Who is this for?

The scope of the syllabus makes the qualification suitable for Compliance Officers and Money Laundering Reporting Officers, those involved in regulation, law enforcement, trade and commerce and individuals from bi-lateral development institutions and civil society organisations. Cyber crime can affect all parts of financial institutions and individuals from various roles will benefit from understanding this unit.

Our classroom training is delivered in-house and can be tailored to your Firm's requirements and the ability of the audience preparing for CISI exams.

Face to face training
Our recommended approach includes face to face training with one of our CISI expert trainers who will guide participants through the syllabus in a structured, engaging and interactive manner.

Practice tests and mock exams
Our face to face training days commence with a ‘kick-off’ test, testing the participants on their existing capabilities, and finish with a ‘progress’ test assessing their progress on the days topics.

As part of our in-house CISI study programmes, participants have access to chapter by chapter practice questions and a mock exam that simulates the real CISI examination.

These tools provide valuable feedback and monitoring to track the participants’ performance throughout the study programme and are vital in effectively preparing participants for success in their CISI exam.
