Course Summary

This course prepares the student for taking a key role in the creation of a corporate cyber risk management program within an organization, and is specially valuable for employees of Managed Service Providers. It covers the what, why, and how of effective cyber risk management using the Cyber Essentials Canada (CE Canada) Certification.

Why is it Valuable for Businesses to Send Their IT Staff on This Course?

Having key IT staff become Certified Cyber Essentials Canada Practitioners (CCECP) positions the organization to take full advantage of CE Canada’s CE and CE Plus certification programs. This training certification will equip students with practical knowledge of the CE Canada framework for ongoing cybersecurity risk management. It also provides the spin-off benefits of creating a competitive corporate business advantage, as well as enhancing students’ professional career skills.

What Subject Areas Will Be Covered?

This course will cover the key governance and technical subject areas for which the business must meet security requirements in order to obtain the CE Canada's CE or CE Plus certifications. This includes general background on CE Canada Certification and the CE Canada Code of Ethics, as well as technical requirements for network boundaries, firewalls and gateways; secure configurations, access controls, malware protection and security patching.

How is the CCECP Course Structured?

This 2-day course will be conducted in a live, in-person meeting place, with at least 10 students from one or more organizations. Innovative collaboration exercises are built into the agenda to maximize student engagement and knowledge retention, and to provide the opportunity for sharing of experience, knowledge and lessons learned among students.

Each Cyber Essentials Canada control area will be covered in detail, with periods for open discussion and Q&A. The course will end with a 30 minute final exam, which students will need to pass with a mark of 70% in order to complete the course.

Breaks will be taken part way through each day, as well as a 1 hour lunch period each day. Coffee and light snacks will be provided in the morning. Off-site establishments are available within a 5-10 minute drive of the event location.
