Real great short course in cyber security . the teacher is very good both in knowledge of subject and his presentation style of lectures are friendly and practical . the course comes alive when the assignment was giving out which is reflection based on material learned. by doing the assignment I learned so much. It felt like a mini masters thesis in some ways but at diploma level. really happy with course as the structure is based on learning from other students input . If you willing to work hard and put the time into the assignment and course you will gain so much from this short course.

We pride ourselves on hiring and retaining a highly skilled workforce.  Cybersecurity, by is very nature,  is an ever evolving and expanding industry so ensuring that we have a training matrix in place to upskill our teams is very important.

In 2020 we engaged with Ibat College Dublin to sign up our Inside Sales Team to achieve their Diploma in Cybersecurity. The content provided on this course provided the team with a working knowledge of the core Cybersecurity Frameworks, an overview of risk management and the legal requirements aligned to GDPR.  The course was delivered online 1 night a week and the team had access to playback of lecture recordings and the Moodle student support with resource material.  The lecturer and course were a perfect match for our requirements and I am happy to advise that all our team came through with distinctions."   - Patrick McHale , Integrity 360
