Although perceived as an IT issue, cyber security is, in fact, a subject relevant to all business units. The Foundation Certificate in Cyber Security (FCCS) is relevant to anyone who requires an understanding of cyber security management as well as those with an interest in cyber security, either as a potential career, or as an additional part of their general business knowledge; including members of cyber security management teams, IT managers, security and systems managers, information asset owners, and employees with legal compliance responsibilities.  
Cloud Academy’s new Foundation Certificate in Cyber Security (FCCS) Learning Path, developed with QA, acts as a foundation for more advanced managerial or technical qualifications and provides a thorough general understanding to enable businesses to ensure they are secure. The FCCS is designed to assess your understanding of industry-standard technology and platforms, in relation to its specific cyber governance, risk and assurance challenges. 
This learning path will take you back to computer basics to build your understanding of common technology platforms through to the network layer and on via virtualization technologies, cloud systems, telecoms, and modern communications. It then moves into the fundamentals of cyber security, focusing on common methods of attack, protective monitoring, encryption, and how digital footprints are often exploited.
Following this, you’re exposed to the world of cyber and legal governance, focusing on cyber law and the context in which security practitioners and organizations have to operate within. Finally, we look at the other types of security that are important to take into account and best practice for security architecture.
