We understand the ICT requirements of each business are different and they have varying levels of ICT awareness and system maturity and this is reflected in their ICT needs.
This is why we have 3 levels of ICT accreditation, most businesses will start at Level 1 and work their way up, this provides a solid ICT foundation that allows businesses to document their ecosystem including policies and procedures. Businesses that already have a level of ICT awareness may want to start at a higher level and this is completely OK.
The process is simple and can be delegated to staff or your ICT service provider. You can work your way through the workbook as fast or as slow as you want within the allocated 12 weeks.
If you’re unsure where your business should start, you can contact us and we will help you decide.
