Security and its governance have now become key issues for all organisations. In this unit Information Security and Governance you will learn to examine how organisations and professionals operate securely in the Information Age and understand the importance of developing structures, policies, procedures, processes and controls to protect information.

Within this unit you will explore organisational information security risks and different approaches that organisations can use to mitigate these risks and implement security plans and processes. You will also examine the role of governance from both a technological and organisational perspective, for example understanding the issue of complying with governance standards and synthesising this knowledge into understanding how policies are developed with governance in mind.
