Cyber Security is more important than ever, with large businesses and organisations investing significant sums in their own defences.  Cyber criminals however are always looking for the weakest link and often a vulnerability somewhere in the Supply Chain is
used as an entry point.
As organisations tighten their own defences, attackers are increasingly exploiting procurement and supply chain vulnerabilities, with devastating financial, legal, operational,
and reputational consequences. These include loss of data and/or intellectual copy right (IPR), as well as cyber fraud. This course will help you understand the threats and what you need to do to protect yourself, whether you are procuring, supplying or both and,
importantly, how you can use strong security as a competitive differentiator when engaging with other businesses and interests.

The course pulled together all the aspects of what is expected of the SIRO and more. It provided a sensible level of detail and depth to enable a SIRO to engage with a board and with technical teams with improved confidence.

The knowledge and experience of the course instructor was second to none. He was able to provide highly relevant personal insight across all the course content and to expand around all the course topics with real world examples.

Immensely informative, a real eye opener for some as to our current position and cannot fault the templar team at all for their hard work and commitment to us throughout the whole process.
