About the course

Information Assurance Course

The Information Assurance Course is taught by qualified ex-military personnel with experience of working within the respective area within cyber security. Outside of teaching the course they are fully engaged in this field of expertise, using the techniques you will learn through the course whilst developing their skills in line with an ever evolving industry. They will give you real world insights into the roles you can be expected to go into, career progression available and are well connected within cyber security networks.

Information Assurance provides the security backbone in any business. Keeping data safe, managing risk and ensuring the right information gets to the right people is at the heart of the discipline.
Information Assurance (IA) relates more to how businesses protect their data, strategic risk management of information and related systems, rather than the creation and application of security controls. Therefore, in addition to defending against malicious attackers and malware, IA roles consider corporate governance issues such as privacy, regulatory and standards compliance, auditing, business continuity, and disaster recovery as they relate to information systems.
