Cyber Security: Risk & Mitigation
The litany of recent high profile cyber-attacks has focused the attention of managers, corporate officers and boardrooms on their exposure to cyber risk. The pervasiveness of cyber in all aspects of an organization’s daily activities raises both vulnerabilities and opportunities. We offer courses designed to help managers and leaders gain the familiarity they need to deal with cyber-related issues that will affect their enterprise, whether in the public or private sector, and to begin to assess their relative risk in cyber. These courses focus on vulnerabilities, the inevitability of cyber-attacks and the corporate and legal responsibilities involved to manage and mitigate the risk. These courses addresses cyber risk as an existing threat with a focus on the managerial requirements to understand that risk and mitigate its impact. Presentations and level of detail varies with the audience but these courses are appropriate for senior managers, IT professionals, executives, C-suite level leadership (CEO, CIO, CTO, CFO, et al.), Board of Directors, etc.
