Cyber Security and Information Protection COMP 9707

Temporarily Online

Our Cyber Security and Information Protection course was developed because cyber security is a hot topic in today’s business world and the world at large: almost every week, there are new stories about some major institution or business organization that has been hacked and whose confidential customer information has been compromised. Focus on how to protect enterprise assets (confidential business and customer data) as well as personal information. Learn the approaches and measures used to deal with day-to-day issues including cyber threats, cyber attacks, data breaches, online scams, identity threats, social engineering, phishing and more. Study data privacy, mobile security, intrusion detection/prevention, encryption, data leakage prevention, secured email, cloud security and perimeter security.

This course is offered by George Brown College Continuing Education in partnership with Three O Project Solutions Inc.


Course Delivery Method:

This is normally an in-class course but will be offered temporarily online via Blackboard Learn while college buildings are closed.


You will have the most success in this course if you already have a basic understanding of how IT is used in today’s business world before you start this course.
