Understanding Cyber Risk

Course Overview
Cybersecurity issues continue to grow in both prevalence and disruptive potential. While senior business leaders recognize that cyber risks pose significant threats to their businesses and organizations, more can be done to proactively increase the ability to oversee and manage these risks. This course is the first of two that aim to educate business leaders and management on how to assess, monitor and then manage cyber-related risks.

Understanding Cyber Risk provides an overview of cyber risk and the lens and model through which leaders should view and measure that risk. Furthermore, this course identifies how an organization can prepare for cyber threats, including recognizing the different categories of cyber threat actors, common types of cyber attacks, identifying key assets and potential breach impacts, and detailing cyber risk management techniques and risk factors that impact every organization.
