Cybersecurity Awareness Training for
Financial Institutions

About this Course

The usage of digital channels in the banking industry such as internet banking, digital wallets, mobile and ATM banking has increased. This increases their exposure to cyber- related attacks which may lead to financial and reputational losses. According to the Annual Crime Report 2018, a total of 198 cases were reported compared to 158 cases in 2017 which resulted into a monetary loss of Ugx 610,335,000 to cyber criminals in 2018 alone! Is your bank part of these statistics?

Regardless of size, any Financial Institution can be a target. An attacker can have a number of motives, including theft of data, reputational damage or simply malice. The Institute of Forensics and ICT Security has organized a training on Cybersecurity for Financial Institutions on the 28th June 2019 at the Institute for IT Managers and Systems Administrators. This training will build a solid foundation for understanding cyber risk management practices, improving your information security program and securing your applications.
