Of ever increasing importance to the financial services sector, cybercrime and cyber-enabled crimes are becoming one of the main categories of criminal act encountered in the sector. In fact, the City of London Police report that more than a quarter of all financial crimes they now investigate include an important cyber component.

The Chartered Institute for Securities Investment (CISI)’s Managing Cyber Security qualification has been developed by established international specialists and focuses, in non-technical terms, on explaining to the lay person how cybercrimes are carried out, the necessary control frameworks regulated firms need to implement and the relevant laws, regulations and best practice guidance to which they should adhere.

Who is this for?

The syllabus is primarily intended for non-technical and managerial audiences and is suitable for professionals working within the financial services industry including Compliance officers and Money Laundering Reporting officers, those involved in operational risk management, audit or IT audit, regulation, law enforcement, trade and commerce and individuals from bi-lateral development institutions and civil society organisations.

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.
