Risk Management has grown to become a vital factor in ensuring business continuity, with new threats and challenges constantly arising. NSI has therefore decided to now offer training courses providing advice and best-practice approaches. The NSI Risk Management training course provides an overview of the subject, helping delegates gain an understanding of how to apply risk management principles within a company or business area. The course is aimed at security managers or those that have mid- and high-level managerial responsibility for security and risk duties. NSI CEO, Jeff Little, stated, ‘This year shall prove to be an exciting year for our training department, with new courses being developed. The Risk Management course is an integral addition to the training portfolio. In these testing times, it has never been more important for companies to dedicate time to enhance their risk management skills.’
