What are Micro-Credentials?

They are shorter, personalized, and enables employment in specific roles. At the end of this program, you will receive an official document credential from Sheridan Continuing & Professional Studies. 

Program Description

Cybersecurity is a complex and multifaceted domain. As a business leader, you may be unaware or feel overwhelmed with understanding what cybersecurity entails, why it’s important, and how to protect your business.

Using the Get Cyber Safe guide – a Government of Canada cybersecurity guide for SMBs – you will explore how to identify and mitigate threats and vulnerabilities in key areas of your business.
