Course description

Management of Information Security and Risk: Socio-technical Systems

Management of Information Security and Risk: Socio-technical Systems - CPD accredited course at City University London

IT is not a segment which is isolated from an organisation so it is essential to know about the people in the firm and the IT section jointly to create a “socio-technical system”. Technical know-how is not sufficient in deciding the procedures in procurement, integration and successful management.

This module will focus in managing risk in socio-technical systems which involve procurement or advancement of IT systems as well as methods, instruction, motivation and responsibility structures. Its objectives also include applying ideas of risk assessment and resilience in procedure to these systems.

Applicants whose first language is not English need to demonstrate their English language proficiency. The minimum requirements are:

  • IELTS: 7 overall with a minimum of 7.0 in each component.
