Course overview

During the slow old days when everything was paper-based, to send documents to different departments or businesses, your managers had to package them up and mail them. It would take days, or even weeks, and relied on the postal service getting them to their destination in one piece. Thankfully, file sharing can now happen instantly, at the touch of a button. But, while it’s cut down on wasted time, it’s vulnerable to cybercrime.  

When your managers’ teams need to share files, either internally, or externally, those files need to be protected. If they’re not shared securely, they could end up in the wrong hands. To ensure those files are secure, they need first to recognize the potential problems of file sharing. Then they can use methods to mitigate those risks.
