Cyber Security for Project Professionals

Course Overview

The cyber security landscape is constantly evolving, and businesses of all sizes are at risk of cyber attacks that can have serious financial, operational, and reputational consequences. To address this risk, it is critical that all functional roles within a business have a practical understanding of how to implement effective cyber security measures in their role, department, and organisation, thereby reducing the risk of cyber attacks and protecting sensitive information.

This course starts with a tour of the modern security environment to establish a foundational knowledge of threats and vulnerabilities. It then follows through to apply these learnings in the context of all cyber domains covering topics including risk management, security frameworks, roles and responsibilities, security awareness and culture, supply chain security, business continuity, and more.

Participants will leave this course with the ability to identify cyber threats applicable to their function to make improved decisions across strategy, operations, policy, and processes for the protection of business assets. Participants will feel empowered to engage with technical professionals and understand the relevance of their objectives.

Ultimately, the goal of the course is to equip business professionals with the knowledge to strengthen people, process and technology defence lines, and to make informed choices to improve security.
