Course details

With the risk of cyber-attacks increasing, there has never been a better time for cyber security training. That’s why AXELOS developed RESILIA, an exciting new qualification designed to equip everyone in your organization with cyber security awareness.

This online RESILIA Foundation course is fully accredited by AXELOS and will equip you with a solid understanding of cyber security risks and how to prevent them. Based upon industry best practice and the ITIL life cycle, the RESILIA framework will help you detect and respond to cyber-attacks.

Because this is an online course, it is ideal for busy individuals or teams. You can fit training around your busy working life and take the RESILIA Foundation exam online when you feel ready. Both the course and exam can be completed anywhere in the world, as long as you have internet access. The exam will require a webcam for invigilation.

Why this qualification?

Organizations in all industries face an increased risk from cyber-attacks. Notorious cases, such as the WannaCry ransomware attack on the NHS, show that the threat is growing worldwide. Attackers are becoming more unpredictable and viruses more complex.

The RESILIA Foundation course equips you with an overview of best practice cyber security techniques. You will learn a common terminology, which will make communication with IT departments easier. You will also learn effective risk management skills and be able to implement a cyber security strategy at your workplace.

As RESILIA training has been designed for everyone from the board level down, it is ideal for anyone who needs to understand how to prevent cyber security risks. Whilst many cyber security courses require you to be working in the IT sector, RESILIA does not. RESILIA benefits your organization as it ensures everyone is on the same page when it comes to cyber security.

Who is this for?

RESILIA Foundation training is designed for anyone requiring a basic understanding of cyber security, especially IT service managers, risk managers, business analysts and project managers. However, RESILIA has been designed for everyone within an organization, regardless of position or title.

I need to learn cyber security skills for my current role

This is a common goal for people on this course. Your current employer may want to improve cyber security awareness at your organization. Maybe you’ve found a new role at a company already using RESILIA best practice. You might be a business analyst, project manager, risk or IT service manager wanting to add to your skillset. If any of these sound like you, this course will suit your needs.

I need cyber security training for my staff

If you are responsible for arranging training at your organisation, choose this course for any team or individual that needs an awareness of cyber security. This course will equip your staff with RESILIA best practice techniques and the RESILIA Foundation certification. This qualification will prove to clients that your staff can detect and respond to cyber security threats effectively.

I need a qualification to enhance my CV

RESILIA Foundation provides accredited cyber security certification. If you want to develop your current career, having this qualification will certainly enhance your CV, especially if you work in a risk, IT or management function. However, if you wish to apply for roles requiring technical cyber security knowledge, qualifications such as COBIT, CISSP, CISM or CISA would look better on your CV.

I want to retrain for a new career in cyber security

This RESILIA Foundation course equips you with an overview of cyber security and provides accredited certification recognized by all industries worldwide.
