View upcoming dates »

Course Overview

This Digital Risk training course will cover some of the most pressing and critical areas of enterprise risk management that executives in organisation’s worldwide currently face. In a world that is increasingly moving to a digital future and where disrupting technologies and competitors come at a much faster speed than ever before, this course will look at the upcoming technology from Artificial Intelligence to Blockchain.

In this digital future, it is more important than ever for organisation’s to have an online presence, take advantage of the latest technology & big data whilst also preparing for the future by considering future technologies. The course discusses the importance of not getting left behind the competition and how to avoid the pitfalls of choosing technology which can often be costly, require great resources and can require a change of business processes. In addition to choosing the right technology, the course will also consider the increased exposure to Cyber Attacks such as Phishing, Viruses and Hacking that having more reliance on digital technology presents.

Whilst Virus scanners, firewalls and other security measures are necessary, something which is often overlooked in relation to cyber security and digital technology is that of people. Employees, customers, contractors and visitors to the organisation all pose the biggest digital threat. 90% of cyber attacks are successful due to human error, customers expect and demand user friendly interfaces, safety of data and privacy and the role of social media is ever increasing. This course focuses on all these areas and aims to use real case examples and practical solutions.
