Take Control of Your Company’s Information Security

Online Security Whether your business is large or small, it undoubtedly stores a substantial amount of classified or sensitive information that has to be protected. Your employee records, for example, contain Social Security numbers that could lead to identity theft if they make it into the wrong hands. All of your customers who have ever paid for products or services have left payment information, credit card details or bank account routing numbers, and it is paramount that you secure these to the best of your ability to protect them as well as your company’s reputation.

On top of it all, you may have collected data about customers or developed proprietary information, all of which should never be hacked or leaked.

Improve your company’s Information Security protocol thanks to one or more of the security courses offered by Ashford Global.

Certified Information Systems Auditor

Even if you already have plenty of security measures in place like a password protected network or encryption for everything you store in the cloud, there are still likely vulnerabilities. The best way to spot those vulnerabilities and assess the system you have in place is by having an employee become a Certified Information Systems Auditor. After participating in this program, they will be ready to spot weakness in any security system and test the reliability of the measures you have in place to protect data.

Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator

After a hack, a leak or a data breach, the first step is often trying to recover anything that may have been lost. However, larger IT service providers and IT businesses may want to go one step further and determine who was ultimately responsible for the breach in the security system. Anyone who takes a course to become a certified Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator will be prepared to follow the virtual fingerprints left behind by hackers in order to find and prosecute them.

Security Awareness

You don’t need to be an expert in IT security in order to be the right fit for a related training program. Executives or managers who want a comprehensive overview of Information Security in the digital age may want to enroll in a Security Awarenessprogram. The five day program is the fastest and most effective way to learn about everything from encryption to data storage to IS assessment, and it can give you the tools needed to oversee other security and IT experts on staff.

Certified Ethical Hacker

The term hacker is generally viewed as a negative, but training to become a Certified Ethical Hacker may be a great move for those who work in IT. If your business enrolls an employee in a CEH program, you will have someone readily available who can think and act like a hacker.

This is incredibly useful if you want to assess vulnerabilities in an existing system or find out what the biggest weaknesses are for your existing IT security system. Someone who participates in the CEH program can periodically try to hack your business’ network just to see if it is possible.
