Online Certificate course on Information Security, Privacy and Data Protection — Scope and requirements in the IT Industry

All organizations rely on the use of information in their daily work. For this reason, organizations need to ensure that their information assets i.e. any piece of data which has value to the organization, such as an employee record, analysis reports, financial data, trade secrets, contracts, etc., are suitably protected. This is a key objective within a specific field called Information Security. Information security refers to the ways and means to protect printed, electronic, or any other form of confidential, private and sensitive information or data from unauthorised access, use, misuse, disclosure, destruction, modification, or disruption.

In today’s day and age, threats to data security, confidential information, and valuable intellectual property assets are a major area of concern for businesses of all sizes. As the world becomes more connected, the vulnerability of those assets is growing. While companies now realize the importance of being proactive in protecting their most sensitive information and IP, few know what steps need to be taken to address the growing risks.

The need for a deeper understanding of Information Security is bolstered by the fact that e-commerce and transactions on the internet are pegged to grow with time. Analysts even estimate that cybercrime will balloon to over $6 trillion annually by 2021. This will only mean that companies involved in the online space will look to bolster their cyber-security measures and expert personnel, fit to handle instances such as this. Additionally, with the copious amounts of data being stored, processed and analyzed by companies, understanding information security is a must for any practitioner.

The Certificate Course in Information Security Privacy and Data Protection offered by Enhelion will expand your horizons and deepen your knowledge, helping you understand key aspects of information security and data protection such as the Law and Policy of the Indian Cyberspace, the law and emerging trends relating to Data Protection, Privacy and Corporate Compliance, the Privacy Bill tabled in 2000, concepts such as Intermediary Liability among a slew of other topics.

Achieving the certificate provided by Enhelion will enable you to learn from industry practitioners and experts, whose teachings will be premised on the practical application of the laws involved instead of a theoretical approach. The course will also help students hit the ground running and stay ahead of the pack, instead of taking time to settle down and take additional time to develop an understanding of the practical nuances.

Lawyers within this space can be expected to advise clients on the broad range of issues that businesses face daily in order to secure data, guard valuable intellectual property, and comply with the laws, rules, and regulations regarding privacy. They would also require skills that help them to recognize, respond to, and minimize the serious risks associated with the collection, use, retention, disclosure, and disposal of personal information, susceptible IP, and data, and assist with the design and implementation of cyber-security and data protection best practices, compliance programs, and incident response plans to help organizations comply with the evolving new data privacy requirements.
