We paused our classroom in person training at the beginning of the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for the health and safety of our customers and to comply with legislation. We will continue to closely monitor the UK Government Advice for the safe delivery of classroom and on-site training courses.
In the meantime, we are working to bring some of our training courses to an online environment delivering both live and on-demand learning experiences.
We recognise that everyone is still working out what the ‘new normal’ is and it can be difficult to find the time or capacity to focus on learning and continuing professional development, which is why we are also looking at delivering flexible courses to you giving you the space to learn at your own pace, and convenience.
We’re delighted to announce that one of the first online courses we will be launching is ‘Foundations of IoT security’ in association with the IoT Security Foundation. Attendees taking this course will:
- Be able to secure a connected IoT product from scratch
- Be able to discuss the main threats and attacks on IoT products and services
- Know how to research and assess IoT threats and risks as they arise
- Be able to implement a security reporting scheme in their organisation
- Be able to work effectively with security researchers on reported IoT security issues and concerns
- Have the knowledge to be able to develop a security patching strategy and product update life-cycle
- Have a good working understanding of the best practices laid down by the IoT Security Foundation
IoT security recommendations and standards continue to move forward at pace and we have been monitoring and mapping the global direction. Copper Horse’s CEO David Rogers, is at the forefront and has recently contributed to the UK Government’s proposals for regulating the cyber security of smart products
In the pipeline is a new course designed to help executives understand the challenges and business opportunities of IoT security. From understanding risks, creating a strategy – thinking about security from the ground up and ensuring the product or service is secure by design and cyber resilient. How this translates into and transforms business opportunities, maintaining the longevity of products and services.
Copper Horse are Global leaders in IoT Security design and implementation, if there is an area or product you would like us to help with, we also offer bespoke training and consultancy.
Or if you have any questions in the meantime or would like to be kept up to date with training course dates and news or discuss options for bespoke training contact us through the form below.
