    Course description:
    Cyber-crime and fraud is a huge risk area for all sectors, but in particular GP Practices, given the sensitive data that they hold and recent attacks on the NHS. Over 90% of all incidents are caused by employee behaviour, irrespective of IT measures that may be in place, as criminals target employees because they are the weakest link in any security. Involving staff in your cyber security measures is crucial to helping keep your practice secure.

    This course, delivered by a former police officer and qualified solicitor, educates your employees in respect of their basic security duties, as well as ensuring they have an awareness of common threats they are likely to encounter in their day to day jobs, thus significantly reducing the risk of your practice suffering a data breach.

    Our training will you ensure that your employees:
    • Have the ability to identify potential security issues within the practice
    • Understand the consequences of poor information security and cyber security
    • Are able to recognise and understand best practice
    • Are aware of the types of cyber and fraudulent attacks that they may be exposed to in their day to day jobs
    • Understand how to avoid becoming a victim of an incident
    • Are able to prevent a data breach of sensitive information
    Course outline for the day
    During this interactive workshop, we will provide you with real life examples and scenarios, ensuring that the information delivered is both memorable and engaging. It will cover a range of areas, including phishing emails, social engineering and best practice measures to avoid becoming a victim.

    Who should attend
    All employees within the practice who require the use of a computer, laptop or mobile device.

    Half day: £525+VAT

    Full day: £875 + VAT (2 consecutive sessions to ensure all members of the practice are able to be trained)

    For up to 12 people. You may wish to join up with other neighbouring practices to share the cost of the training.
