Why You Should Attend

Mastering the Management of Cyber Security

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set

Todays business world is becoming ever more interconnected. New threats are emerging every day- not just from bad actors, but from the vulnerabilities created by a widening attack surface and enhanced communications. Digital transformation has also created an environment of increasingly intense competition. Agile organizations can get the upper hand by using cutting-edge technologies to create new products, provide better customer experiences, innovate, and rapidly scale those innovations across the enterprise. As a result, business strategy and IT strategy will be increasingly and actively more aligned. How a company weaves its technology investments together will ultimately determine how prepared it is to preempt disruption and seize opportunities. Companies that build boundaryless, adaptable, and radically human IT systems that explicitly enable scale and strategic agility will win the day.

Security and governance will become more complicated than todayas more potential attack surfaces increase vulnerability. While developing new products and services, an organization needs to strike the right balance between innovation and risk. In most cases, the more that security is increased, the less user-friendly and convenient the product or service becomes.

The course teaches a new paradigm that approaches security as a business problem and aligns it with business needs. So, instead of viewing security as a technical problem handled by technical people, it uses an outcome-driven approach that balances investment and risk. Even further, instead of throwing money at the problem at the expense of executive engagement, it connects cybersecurity with business decision-making to impact business outcomes using three prongs, risk management, proactive employee involvement (Cyber-Wellness) and business strategy
