Event Description


In our data-driven world, keeping internal data that runs through an organization secure, is a top priority, to prevent unauthorized access and ensure smooth business functioning. Without this, you can encounter some serious risks, giving rise to the assumption that Information Security is a must-have and no longer optional. Natural disasters, computer or server malfunction, and theft are among the many threats that can compromise company data – if these events occur, you need to be prepared with the tools and knowledge. 

In this webinar, we will be discussing why you and your organization should be making further investments in Information Security to protect your data and ensure that your organization can continually operate by implementing safe and secure Information Security Management.

 Furthermore, there will be the opportunity to learn about EXIN’s Career Path certification: EXIN Information Security Officer, where you can validate your skills and recognition to lead the implementation of such Information Security best practices within your organization
