MGT433: How to Build, Maintain and Measure a Mature Awareness Program

Mon, June 1st - Fri, June 5th, 2020 - European Time Zone

Having been actively involved in information security for more than 20 years, I have seen one constant factor: people are the number one target for cyber attackers because we fail to properly invest in and secure them. Once trained, your workforce will become your greatest asset, not only in preventing incidents but being able to quickly identify and report them, developing a far more resilient organization. I am extremely excited about MGT433, as we provide organizations with the skills, resources and community they need to build a high-impact security awareness program that will not only change behaviors, but also measure that change.

MGT521: Driving Cybersecurity Change - Establishing a Culture of Protect, Detect and Respond

Mon, June 8th - Fri, June 12th, 2020 - European Time Zone

For far too long cybersecurity has been perceived as purely a technical challenge. Organizations and leaders are now realizing that we also have to address the human side of security. From securing your workforce's behavior, to engaging and training developers, IT staff and other departments, security today depends on your ability to engage and partner with others. In other words, your security culture is becoming just as important as your technology. MGT521 will provide the frameworks, roadmaps and skills you need to successfully secure your organization, from deploying specific security initiatives to embedding a comprehensive, organization-wide security culture. In addition, the course will provide you the resources to measure and communicate the impact to your leadership, ensuring long-term support.
