Welcome to the iSMTA and our Modern Security Management courses & training at Level 5, which is certified by Industry Qualifications (IQ) who are approved by qualification regulators in the UK.
Security is vital to any organisation or business. The protection of people, assets, information and data, reputation, activities, profits and secrets is routinely expected and its value is often only recognised when something goes wrong. Organisations and businesses are facing ever increasing threats and risks, from the massive thefts of private and corporate data from increasingly frequent and sophisticated cyber-attacks, to rising global terrorism, the increasing cost of frauds, to the threat of business disruption and the need to enhance operational resilience.
To meet these increasing challenges security advisors need to be capable and qualified. Our iSMTA Modern Security Management Professional qualification provides the training necessary to gain that recognition and provides a perfect pathway to further Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
