Cyber Security

Cybercrime Awareness

Cyber Security is of growing critical importance to individuals and organisations of all sizes as cyber-criminals attempt to exploit weaknesses in order to access valuable data.

Equality & Diversity

All employees in an organisation need to have a clear and consistent understanding of equality and diversity and how an inclusive organisation can enable improvements to customer service and to productivity. Our digital learning course enables these requirements for all employees and can form a critical part of an organisation’s induction process.

Digital Application

Risk Management

All organisations have an objective and a responsibility to manage risks effectively. Staff awareness of risk management enables organisations to reconcile risks and rewards, take informed decisions about exploiting opportunities and have increased confidence in achieving their priorities.



All managers and their staff need to understand the organisation’s role under the GDPR legal framework and have awareness of their own day-to-day responsibilities for data protection. Digital learning provides the opportunity to provide a clear understanding of: Who is responsible for GDPR compliance? What are the risks and costs of non-compliance ? What types of data exist and how can the processing of data vary? What are people's rights and responsibilities?
