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
