Getting certified in an APMG professional certification provides a plethora of benefits for both professional individuals and organizations alike. APMG's focus is on quality - to reflect this all of our professional cyber-certifications are developed to ensure they teach professional invdividuals the latest skills, knowledge and best practice methodologies, while ensuring organizations have the necessary means to keep their sensitive cyber-assets secure.
Why is Cyber-Certification Important?
The 21st Century heralds a digital age - cyber-space has fast become a dominating aspect of peoples' everyday lives and organizations are continuesly using cyber-space as a means of thriving in the marketplace. Despite this dependency, cyber-space is an unpredictable and sometimes hostile landscape. Cyber-space has given birth to a new era of criminality - sensitive assets stored in cyber-space are attractive targets for a variety of cyber-criminals who often successfully steal or expose such data.
High-profile cases of organizations falling prey to cyber-criminals are becoming more frequent and the consequences of being breached are often severe. According to the BIS 2014 Information Security Breaches Survey, 81% of large organizations have experienced a security breach of some sort - costing each organization between £600,000 and £1.5 million.
