Managing Cyber Risk

3 Units

This course offers valuable perspective for both the non-technical business manager and the technical cybersecurity or IT manager. Managing cyber risk is the vital connector between the technical world of threats, vulnerabilities, and exploits, and the business world of board-level objectives, enterprise risk management, and organizational leadership. Now more than ever, managers have a need and responsibility to understand cyber risk. Just as financial risks and other operational risks have to be effectively managed within an organization, cyber risk has to be managed. It spans far beyond IT, with broad implications in the areas of organizational behavior, financial risk modeling, legal issues, and executive leadership. As cyber threats become the number one risk for individuals, businesses, and governments, every organization will need someone with this kind of business-oriented cyber risk knowledge on the board of directors or executive team.
