After completing the initial Coaching Course in early 2021, I wanted a way to communicate what I had learned to a wider audience of owners and managers of small businesses and tell them about an approach that I believed would work for them. I decided that self-study on-demand online courses were the best way to deliver what I know and what I have learned.
Surviving Cyber now provides the three courses to the owners of small information-based businesses in Ireland and the UK who are concerned about cyber risk and want to be empowered to manage it.
IT skills are not required for the courses as the focus is on managing cyber as a business risk. Brief details of the courses are below with full details available on the respective course pages on this website.
