Relevant to you if

  • Upgrade business communication skills with the added knowledge on preventing, identifying, and stopping threats to company and employee assets.
  • Get more involved in the formation and implementation of cybersecurity strategies.

Definitely for you if you are experiencing:

A CONTINUOUS STRUGGLE TO GET EXEC SUPPORT TO SUPPORT THE OBVIOUS Keeping modern environments secure while advancing, demonstrating due care and adding value is overwhelming. Does your business support you in upgrading your tooling and capacity to meet modern market and regulatory expectations? Learn how you can better explain technical and non-technical security challenges in terms of business risk.
KEEP ON SEEING SECURITY AS PRIMARILY A COST Management today expects a strong security system as a given. Keeping organisations secure costs money, similar to Digital Transformation projects, HR, Legal, and Finance. These departments have already established and demonstrated their value towards the business. Access a better language to demonstrate the value that matters to decision-makers.
NEED TO BE BETTER AT SELLING SECURITY Is your message to management "We're vulnerable." while the audience is thinking "What vulnerability? We have backups and firewalls already. Our organisation is in the cloud. What does this have to do with me?" You need help to better qualify and quantify exposure in terms of risk to the holders of the budgetary purse. Become their partner in assessing "What is a reasonable amount of risk?"
