Leading a Secure Organization

While cybersecurity is now clearly the purview of the C-suite, the concepts are often foreign to business leaders, who may not know the right questions to ask their IT and cybersecurity professionals. Security has to start at the top, and the current threat landscape demands that senior leaders take ownership of the organization’s security posture and culture. The training draws on examples from the headlines and illustrates how management-level attention and decisions could have made the difference between a minor breach and a major one. The course is provided as a single program, or as individual modules that respect the busy schedules of your leadership team.
