Cyber Governance: Protect and safeguard your business assets from the risk of cyber attack

Cyber security is a national threat and priority, and about one-third of business houses worldwide have experienced cybercrime, resulting in disruption, and loss of information, brand position and revenue. It therefore mandates that business leaders from corporate and government organisations recognise the importance of cyber-security strategy, and equip themselves to secure their business assets.

The programme envisages raising awareness by providing a snapshot of the cyber crime landscape, demystifying technical terms such as ‘zero-day exploits’, and exposing the latest trends pursued by cybercriminals. The course will also help participants assess their organisation’s risk potential, thereby enabling them to go back with an answer to how much the organisation should spend on new frontier technologies to enhance cyber security. The sessions will also help participants drive change initiatives in creating and developing a strong security culture within the organisation.
