Leading Cyber Security in Government and Industry

  • Santorini
  • 4 June 2018 - 8 June 2018

Our ‘Leading Cyber Security in Government and Industry’ program has been designed explicitly to focus on the knowledge and skills required by government and industry to lead cyber security management capacity in the workforce.

Our ‘Leading in Cyber Security in Government and Industry’ program is structured over 5 days so that participants are exposed to a common core of key management issues within the fields of Strategy, Finance and Accountancy, Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management, Responsible Management and the Economic Environment of Business.  Each of these areas will be explored from the specific perspective of cyber security. This is because cyber security impacts upon each of the functional areas of all organisations in specific ways.

The management of cyber security thus requires both traditional and specific knowledge, skills, and abilities. Due to the interconnected nature of contemporary societies, and the extensive use of Information Technology, cyber security management requires joined up thinking from strategy through to operations and contingency planning. Where specialist scientific education provides the knowledge and skills needed for front line engagement with cyber security, this program in ‘Leading Cyber Security in Government and Industry’ enables participants to lead cyber security initiatives and to manage technical experts. This means that participants develop the knowledge and expertise to make strategic decisions that involve cyber security risk management from within any traditional functional area.

In order to assist participant development, this 5-day intensive program has a modular design, which can be supplemented by additional learning post-course should participants need to develop their knowledge further.  This 5-day program in fact, provides the foundations of a traditional MBA in Cyber Security, whilst the optional supplementary modules enable students to tailor their own ongoing pathway through cyber security awareness and development. Participants will therefore be able to complement and build on their existing knowledge, thus, providing an excellent learning experience and real added value.

The 5-day program is structured as follows:

Day 1: Cyber Security Strategy
Day 2: Managing the Organisational Cyber Posture and the Financial Aspects of Cyber Security
Day 3: Cyber Behaviour and Managing Insider Threat
Day 4: Digital Security Risk and Audit Management
Day 5: International Cyber and Digital Law

We have chosen the spectacular island of Santorini for this program on Leading Cyber Security in Government and Industry, as Santorini was host to the most advanced civilizations in the ancient world.  It was a leading trading center. Its society enjoyed the oldest water utilities system ever discovered  with both hot and cold water supplies.  The dual pipe system, the advanced architecture, and the apparent layout of the archaeological finds on Santorini resemble Plato’s description of the legendary lost city of Atlantis.

Today, Santorini boasts of a thriving business community and a society that has transformed itself to welcome over 1.5m visitors every year and to be one of the world’s best known and most sought after islands.
