Course Overview

With digital systems playing an increasingly central role in powering businesses, understanding how to tackle cyber security has become fundamentally important to executives and decision makers. Best practice advice often encourages organisations to take a pro-active approach to dealing with cyber security risk, but often stops short of providing important background knowledge on the threats, how to view them in the context of an organisation, options for dealing with them and how they are likely to evolve. This course brings together insights from business, government/regulatory and technology domains to provide a 360 degree view of cyber security to non-technical decision makers.

Drawing on Imperial's extensive expertise in cyber security and thought leaders from business and government this programme will build core knowledge on cyber security, enabling you to identify and understand the root causes of risks within your business. The material covered will not only enable you to have a solid grasp of the cyber security landscape of today, but also how emerging security issues and global technology trends will impact organisations of all types in the future.

The course is designed to appeal to professionals working across a range of industries including financial services, energy, telecoms, health, consultancy and government.
