Certificate in Cyber Security
There is not a day where some story in the news about data breach, system piracy, …, does not illustrate the current lack of adequate cyber security policies and effective security governance frameworks as well as the failure to implement suitable technologies and controls. Of more concern is the shortage of skilled cyber security people in key positions as well as a shortage of adequate training programs. Security awareness amongst general employees is problematic and basic to advanced cyber security training programs are not efficient.
The Certificate in Cyber Security developed and offered as a partnership between the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT), the French South African Institute of Technology (F’SATI) and CS Interactive Training, is a step to build capacity in cyber security and to address the shortages in focused training opportunities for corporate staff.
