A security breach is not only devastating to a company’s reputation but can also be very expensive. Over the past several years, the average cost of a data breach has been well over $3.5 million. During this security awareness training we will discuss strategies to increase security, influence behavior, mitigate risk and ensure compliance. We cover critical governance requirements and security methodologies to assist organizations to protect assets, prevent downtime and increase control awareness and adoption.

The Information Technology Governances are plentiful: Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), Health Information Trust Alliance Common Security Framework (HITRUST), Sarbanes Oxley, SSAE18 SOC2 for 3rd party service providers… the list goes on and on. During this course, we will discuss NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) controls and how a single framework can be implemented to help ensure compliance with all corresponding governances.

Course Key Concepts: Compliance, Security, Cybersecurity, NIST, PCI, HIPAA, SOC2, CMMC, IT.
