Gain a practical approach to cyber resilience

Cybersecurity Risk and Strategy gives you the vocabulary and frameworks to make better strategic decisions that boost your organization’s cyber resilience from top to bottom. This program is offered jointly by IMD and GetSmarter.

The program explores a practical, non-technical approach to cybersecurity management. Guided by industry experts, you’ll learn to effectively identify, prepare for, and respond to emerging and imminent cyber threats. Throughout the program, you’ll look at how to improve your current governance strategy by leveraging existing data protection regulations. You’ll also examine the future of cybersecurity in relation to the mainstream adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT). 

The program gives you the ability to evaluate whether your organization is prepared for imminent and emerging cybersecurity threats. You’ll develop a responsive cybersecurity action plan as you learn to make better decisions that can boost your organization’s cyber resilience from top to bottom.

While it builds on theory and real-life applications, the program is committed to enhancing personal and social skills by encouraging interdisciplinary team work on practical projects. The formal coursework and team projects are completed and enriched by lectures and workshops with experts from industry.

Establish a functional approach to security incident responsiveness and best practices for controlling an incident.

Examine the evolving trends in the cybersecurity landscape and the high-risk threats facing your organization or sector.

Gain the skills to evaluate your organization’s security strategy and breach preparedness.

Develop a cybersecurity plan to protect your assets and promote business value.

You and your class

This program is designed for:

– Technical or non-technical professionals who are looking to expand on their understanding of the cybersecurity landscape
– C-suite executives and business leaders who want to understand the link between effective cybersecurity management and business value
– Senior or middle managers who would like to gain insight into the operational realities of applying cybersecurity strategies within their organization

I am very excited to offer this course and enable business leaders to have more informed conversations on this traditionally IT-specific topic. Helping leaders develop a deep understanding of their organizations’ most pressing digital concerns is the first step in helping them to build digitally resilient organizations, and cybersecurity is where they need to start.
