Cybersecurity isn't just the concern of IT departments. Instead, the security of business data and networks depends on the habits and actions of every person in an organisation. In this course, you'll learn about IT security risks and the common forms they take, and about requirements for protecting data security under Australian law. You'll also learn about best practices for using your organisation's IT resources and services. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by the law firm of Jackson McDonald.
