Certificate Highlights

Advancements in technology have raised the level of threats in the cyber age. These threats touch both the business world and our personal lives. Information technology is no longer a “back-office” function. Once considered a process area that was solely part of the Chief Information Officer’s domain, companies must now acknowledge that whether the threats are internal or external, they are very real and can and will cause harm to many organizations in many ways.

There are many aspects to understanding the cyber world and those aspects continue to change as the business world evolves. As a result, it is imperative that professionals understand and be prepared to deal with the multitude of ever-growing cyber threats.

This certification has been developed with both individual and corporate users in mind. Participants will come away with a deep understanding and appreciation of the types and methods of cybersecurity risk in today’s world, along with an understanding of actions and prevention methods to counteract these risks.

In addition, the certification takes a deep look into the requirements of establishing a cyber risk management framework to assist organizations in several aspects of protecting against cyber risks. We utilize the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) framework to enforce concepts that should be evaluated to develop a holistic cyber risk framework. This includes:

• Identify assets
• Protect assets
• Detect threats
• Respond to threats
• Mitigate threats
