for leaders across the organization

Our high-impact, results-oriented foundational seminar prepares any leader within your organization to contribute effectively to to strengthening its cybersecurity and resilience.

  • IF YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR LEADING BUSINESS INITIATIVES OR MANAGING BUSINESS OPERATIONS: You will learn the essential language of cybersecurity, mastering key terms and concepts. You’ll develop a solid understanding of how your organization’s data, information systems, and process control systems are most vulnerable to attack in today’s constantly morphing threat landscape, and how they can best be protected by technological and non-technological approaches.
  • IF YOU LEAD IN AN IT OR OTHER TECHNICAL ROLE: You will advance your understanding of the threats to which your organization is currently vulnerable, and your ability to articulate them to nontechnical leaders. In the process you’ll enhance your ability to make a strong, benefits-based case for cybersecurity investments and initiatives that can reduce operating costs, avoid mitigation costs, and improve business agility while protecting the organization.
  • WHATEVER YOUR LEADERSHIP RESPONSIBILITIES: You will deepen your understanding of the myriad ways in which cybersecurity concerns intersect with, and must inform, your organization’s strategy and risk-management decisions. You will enhance your grasp of the cascading impact and far-reaching ramifications that a cyber breach could have for your organization, and learn how you and others can best collaborate in developing and applying proven, holistic approaches to keeping it secure and resilient.

Whether or not you come to the seminar familiar with the leading best-practice-based standard in the field, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, you will leave with expert insight into how it can best be utilized to assess your organization’s current cybersecurity state and to set and achieve specific goals for advancing it. Throughout the learning experience—via facilitated discussions, question-and-answer sessions, and a multi-part simulation exercise—you will be encouraged to share your knowledge and insights as you expand your perspectives.
