    Modern organisations face the constant threat of cyber attacks. Creating an effective cyber risk strategy to identify and mitigate the risk of cyber crime is the only way to ensure your survival. However, cyber security management planning can be complex and costly. With so many standards, best practices and technical controls to choose from, how do you get started on your plan?

    This fully accredited three-day course gives you the knowledge to create a plan that not only includes the selection of technical countermeasures (controls) but also considers the people, processes, governance, leadership and culture of your organisation.

    The course will help you:

  • Understand the geopolitical, legal and regulatory context of cyber risk;
  • Identify and assess threats and potential vulnerabilities and determine business impacts by conducting a risk assessment;
  • Appreciate how cyber governance structures help organisations protect their critical assets and meet regulatory compliance objectives;
  • Understand existing cyber security frameworks and standards to determine appropriate technical, procedural and personnel controls; and
