Learn cybersecurity with this certificate course

As the need for businesses to have a stronger online presence grows during this pandemic, corporate cybersecurity should be top-of-mind. As micro, small, and medium enterprises shift to digital storefronts, many may not be familiar with the cybercrimes that they may fall victim to. It is beyond just information theft. These crimes can infest their online products and damage their customers’ trust.

Luckily, there is a short, interactive course that can discusses all of that.

De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde’s (CSB) School of Professional and Continuing Education (SPacE) will be offering a “Governance, Risk Management, and Cybersecurity” certificate course this week.

The seminar-workshop gives a rundown of theories, approaches, practices, and all technical know-how of cybersecurity. Aside from discussing the different threats and how to avoid them, it will tackle the difference between governance and management so that business owners can customize both protective and preventive policies that align with their operations and personnel.

These lectures, which can be attended within the safety and comfort of your own home, are facilitated by Information Technology expert Luis Jacinto, MBA, CISA, CISM, CRISC, PIE, CPISI, the retired chief information security officer (CISO) of Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC).
