Why is cyber security training important?

As issues in website security vulnerabilities in healthcare, supply chains and geopolitics abound, it's apparent that security is everyone's responsibility - from information security professionals, policy makers and individuals and end users. The last couple of years has seen a huge disruption and shift in the way we go about our lives both professionally and personally.

Make your people your first line of defence

New Zealand’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) have also released advisories encouraging procedures like Multifactor authentication (MFA) enforcement and the use of tools like built-in Windows security features available in PowerShell.

Organisational and community resilience against growing cyber-attacks really is a team sport – all employees have a critical role they need to play. The great majority of successful cyber-attacks succeed because of simple errors any of us can make. We need to study cyber security now. The reality is that we all require new cyber-awareness skills and behaviours for the digital age to better understand what appropriate and safe behaviours look like.

We’ve collaborated with the best in the business to provide cybersecurity awareness and resilience training for your staff in New Zealand.

What are Good Cyber Security Courses?

Questions that we frequently get asked on this vary from "What courses are required for cyber security?" to "What is the best cyber security training?", and our response to this is always that it depends on your journey and your goals.

We have classes for specialists in so many areas like Cloud, Incident Response, Auditing, Governance – there’s a class for almost anyone in their security journey.

If your goal is to encourage a culture of vigilance in your organisation, we highly recommend cyber security training for employees in NZ which we see as important to hold regularly.

The first step in securing the data of your company, team and customers is strategising how to promote a strong security culture – a workplace, household or community that implements the right tools and policies for protection and trains its members in best practices. The next step is to facilitate regular cybersecurity training.

Successful cybersecurity starts at the top – from government policy makers, community leaders and company executive teams. IT teams should also be given avenues to share their stories and insights.

And if you're on the path to becoming a cybersecurity specialist, we have students attend multiple classes because they want a solid foundation. So, they do both CEH and Security+.

We have students that want a solid understanding of how to integrate security across an organisation so they sit both CISSP and CISM.

For those who want to apply security measures to the current systems they manage, you can find software vendor-specific courses like Microsoft cyber security training, Google courses on cyber security and security courses by AWS and CompTIA.

How long is cyber security training?

Our instructor led or virtual instructor led cyber security training in New Zealand run from 1-2 days for Fundamentals and Essentials Courses. Intermediate and advanced cyber security courses run from 3 to 5 days.

Training days normally run for a standard work day (9 am to 5 pm) with breaks in between. The finish times can sometimes be early depending on how the day of training progresses. The trainer will go through a bit more of a breakdown of start and finish times and breaks on the first morning of the training.

We also offer self-paced courses that you can work through at your own pace. They must be completed within 12 months from the date of booking and are often used by those who wish to prepare for certification.

But learning cyber security is a continuous process. Most students sit one class and get an amazing amount out of the 4 or 5 days. They end up asking about what next steps they can take to either expand or deepen their knowledge.

Are cyber security training courses hard?

What are the difficulty levels and prerequisites? What makes it worthwhile? Cyber security awareness training for staff like the CyberSAFE Online Learning course is geared toward end users. To ensure success in this course, students should have experience with the basic use of conventional end-user technology, including desktop, laptop or tablet computers; mobile phones; and basic internet functions, such as web browsing and email.

Foundational level courses that are aimed at building your career as a cyber security specialist or even a Chief Information Officer, a fundamental understanding of IT and Networking, familiarity with Ethernet and TCP/IP networking, a working knowledge of operating systems and a familiarity with basics of networking security concepts. In cases where the fundamentals course is specific to a platform for data analytics or cloud computing, a general understanding of the platform is required.

Intermediate and advanced cyber security skills training often require a number of years, ranging from three to five, of cumulative work experience in information technology along with fundamental credentials.

While cybersecurity courses in New Zealand can seem daunting - especially advanced courses - the learning is made enjoyable and worth your time and effort if you're passionate about technology and are supported by a community of technical instructors and fellow students.

One of our students who works as an IT security specialist in the public sector notes how our cyber security course has given him an appreciation for how people in the private sector and other government agencies handle various situations. This includes governance and playbooks for security incidents. They were able to share knowledge and experiences on tools and dealing with various third-party suppliers. And his network of colleagues is a little wider now due to the training.
