Description

Open any news site and you’re bound to find a recent story about a devastating cyber security attack.  However, since many senior level managers do not understand the technical aspects of cyber security, they often allocate an insufficient amount of resources necessary to mitigate risk.

In this course, you’ll learn how to explain to all levels of management, including both technical and non-technical executive leadership, why cyber security must be a priority. You’ll learn how to educate and influence senior management so that security and risk mitigation becomes a primary component of corporate strategy.

  • Important Questions and Principles for Board Engagement
  • Black-Box and White-Box Security Assessments and Metrics
