Course description

Cyber Security for Business Executives

With digital systems playing an increasingly central role in powering businesses, understanding cyber security has become fundamentally important to executives in all sectors: particularly within industries that are integral to critical national infrastructure (CNI). Best practice advice encourages organisations to take a pro-active approach to dealing with cyber-security, but often stops short of providing detail on relevant threats, how to view them in the context of a business, available and emerging solutions and the way risks are likely to evolve in the future. As a leader in business, this course will equip you with the knowledge needed to better connect with technical security functions within an organisation and the skills needed to consider business decisions and strategy, whilst taking account of security implications.

Drawing on Imperial’s extensive expertise and experience in this area, industry-leading experts and relevant case studies, this programme will build core knowledge on cyber-security, enabling you to better identify and understand the root causes of cyber risks within a business, how risks evolve over time and how best to mange them. Grasping the foundational material covered will not only enable you to have a more solid understanding of cyber risk today, but also how global emerging security trends and technology issues might impact organisations in the future.

Benefits for you:

  • Enhanced ability to make informed business decisions that directly or indirectly involve cyber-security
  • Greater insight on how to identify situations where cyber-security might be an issue for your business
  • Better understanding of cyber-security in the context of your business
  • A core knowledge base that will allow you to tackle the evolving cyber security landscape well past the course

Benefits for your organisation:

  • Leadership expertise in a topic of ever increasing strategic importance

  • Knowledge of interventions for mitigating organisational exposure to cyber security risk: people, processes, technology and culture
