Course description

Being prepared means knowing just how badly things might go wrong. In this course, five videos take you through the potential dangers that can affect your business and the controls you can implement to protect against them. Beginning with environmental exposures and controls, you move on to physical access exposure (such as unauthorized entry, damage, vandalism, embezzlement and blackmail) and controls; potential dangers of mobile, peer-to-peer computing and Web-based technologies; data leakage; and end-user computing security risks. Take control of your business environment today.
