About the course

Cyber security risks exist across all organisations. Increasingly, leaders and managers are finding they need to have a firmer understanding of the cyber security risks applicable to their areas of responsibility, and how those areas would be impacted by a cyber security incident. Organisations of all sizes need to be prepared for a cyber security incident – which is now viewed as inevitable by many boards and CEOs. PwC Australia’s 26th CEO Survey indicates that nearly half of surveyed organisations are increasing their investments in cyber security and data protection. 

This one-day course is for C-suite and senior leaders who are not cyber security practitioners, but are involved in management of cyber risk. It is for senior people who sit adjacent to their cyber security function and need to develop a working knowledge of cyber security to understand how it fits into a risk management framework. We cover fundamental cyber security topics, including how organisations approach assessing cyber security risks, threat actors, laws and regulations, and strategies to build a cyber secure culture.
