Plan success, design processes, achieve results
Due to the increasing digitalization of businesses and economy, IT security is becoming more and more important. IT security is no longer merely about protecting sensitive infrastructures, but also many other aspects, such as confidential company information, customer data and “intellectual property”, which is almost exclusively available in digital form. Nowadays, almost every company needs an internet connection or presence.
However, a look at practice shows that many businesses do not protect their data properly, or are unaware of any risks and the consequences of data protection. Often, there is a lack of basic knowledge about the possibilities of technical protection and its legal requirements. IT security is no longer just a "burden", but even represents an advantage over the competition.
In order to acquire a holistic and practice-oriented understanding of IT security for businesses from a legal and technical perspective, this certificate course examines selected core topics of IT security and data protection from this exact point of view. Participants of this certificate course will develop awareness of security issues and potential dangers in their own businesses and learn practice-proven ways to prevent or at least minimize such risks.
The main objective of this certificate course is the acquisition of interdisciplinary knowledge between law & technology of IT security specifically tailored to the needs of companies, while focusing on theory and practice of IT security, data protection and IT governance.
