4–6 hours per week
Can your organisation afford a $5 million bill? That’s the global average cost of a data breach, according to the Ponemon Institute’s 2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study. All industries need future-focused leaders who can ask the right questions, identify potential areas of risk and help defend against cybercriminals. This course will give you the tools to do just that.

Micro units allow you to study when it’s convenient for you. While you’ll need to start and finish the unit at the same time as fellow participants, it’s up to you how and when you complete the content in between. As a general guide, we recommend you allocate 4-6 hours to your micro unit each week.
We’ve recruited industry experts as our dedicated Online Learning Coaches. They’ll guide you through the course and give you industry insights you can’t find anywhere else. You’ll cover case studies and stories from real business situations, and extra content will be available if you want to explore topics in more depth. In your final assessment, you’ll apply what you’ve learned in a professional context that’s relevant to you.
You may want to do a micro unit for general learning without the pressure of assessment. That’s fine – micro units are all about making study work for you.
