Course Description

Cybersecurity Training for Managers covers the most important aspects of cybersecurity without getting too involved in the technical nitty gritty. Cybersecurity goes beyond the responsibility of IT and technology personnel. Minimizing cybercrime damage and disruption is every employee’s job under the guidance of team leaders and managers. In order to reduce cybersecurity vulnerabilities, many organizations are training their managers and other key personnel on how to create playbooks with actionable next steps toward a more cyber-aware culture.


Analysts point out that today’s cybersecurity management policies should take into account the risks that exist for an organization’s resources. And once vulnerabilities are found, the management policy should outline solutions to stop malicious code from infiltrating the organization’s perimeter defense systems, servers, and desktops. Additionally, cybersecurity management is about how to deploy mitigation measures and who is in charge in the event of a breach. A well thought out cybersecurity management program provides an organization with critical services such as designing and implementing an efficient enterprise security architecture, mitigating advanced threats, securing IoT devices and providing security intelligence.
