Description:

As a leader, you are accountable for the cyber maturity of your organization. In a world where IT-dependency grows and new cyber threats surface every day, cybersecurity is not something that can simply be delegated to the IT-department. It must be on the strategic agenda at the highest level of your organization.

This course has been designed for organizational leaders: directors, managers and advisors to the board, who seek the knowledge that will help them develop a custom cybersecurity program for their organization or improve an existing one. It goes beyond the technical solutions and presents cybersecurity as an enterprise-wide risk management challenge, with an impact at technical, organizational and governance levels.

This course will equip you with the framework, vocabulary and understanding of cyber risks, and will give you the confidence to take the lead in cybersecurity initiatives. With the knowledge and tools you gain, you will be able to prepare your organization for current as well as future cyber threats.

 

In this course you will learn to:

  • Develop strategies to build a cyber-resilient organization.
  • Identify cyber threats for your organization (including ransomware and phishing attacks), assess their risk levels, and determine how to mitigate these risks to acceptable levels.
  • Lead the cybersecurity initiative within your organization by developing solutions, including the design and implementation of cybersecurity action plans.
  • Deal with cybersecurity crises at a strategic level.
