CPD In The Finance Industry
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) states that consistent CPD is an essential part of professional standards. For example, Financial Advisers must complete a minimum of 35 hours of relevant CPD each year, with at least 21 hours of structured learning.
Structured learning activities may include seminars, lectures, conferences, workshops or courses and completing appropriate e-learning. It is not carrying out research on products and services for your customers.
Why Choose Mitigate Cyber Security Training
Cyber Security is a subject matter that every industry is affected by with the average cost of a data breach costing £3.88million.
The finance sector has been the most attacked industry three years in a row and for this reason the Financial Conduct Authority recommends that every firm Invests in training. Their Industry insight reports stated that “One-off cyber security and awareness exercises do not guarantee security. Think long term and design a user education and awareness programme that constantly weaves cyber security into the culture and behaviours of your organisation.”
