Course Overview

You're a risk professional that wants to expand your operational risk skills with cyber. Perhaps you're a security professional that needs to lean on the risk side of governance to table security at the Board level.

In this course, you will learn new models and techniques to blend cyber security and risk management such that you can communicate and address threats and security weaknesses from a risk lens. Translating security vectors into risks ensures cyber blends into your enterprise's risk programs and strengthen the overall Risk Management Framework, which in turn enables effective cyber security oversight from the Board down.

In the practical project, you will build a risk profile for a BU of your choice with a cyber security angle.
