Considering the above-mentioned trends, the objective of this course is to introduce the participants to the fifth dimension of warfare; the cyber arena. It will help students build awareness about cyber threats they are likely to experience, the compliance challenges they will face, the operational dilemmas they will need to address, and, crucially, what actions to take in case of cyber incidents.
Participants will learn about digital technologies and how to create a digital strategy, as well as how to bring these technologies into the organization to create value. This elective covers this gap by bringing cross-disciplinary expertise together on domains such as cybersecurity, privacy, digital consumer behaviour, and, compliance and ethics, so that participants are informed about trust building practices in the digital domain.
This intensive two-day online course covers key questions necessary to understand and manage cybersecurity and privacy in an organisation. We will use a combination of online lectures, virtual group work, simulation and discussions of real cases. At the end of this course, students will become intelligent consumers of the advice provided by Chief Security Officers (CSOs) or external consultants. Participants do not need any previous knowledge in IT or cybersecurity, the focus is on general managers and directors.
