Friday, September 4, 2020, 10:00 AM - Monday, October 19, 2020, 11:59 PM EDT
The New York Academy of Sciences
This non-technical cybersecurity course is aimed at professionals who work at all levels of an organization and want to gain knowledge and competencies in cybersecurity policy and governance. This course covers the basics of cybersecurity including cyberattacks, breaches, and cybercrimes. Students will explore topics such as the threat landscape, identifying who the bad actors are, and why different organization archetypes are prime targets. There will be an emphasis on the governance aspect of cybersecurity which includes preparedness and response lifecycle. A number of case studies will be presented to illuminate real-life examples of cybersecurity incidents with reinforcement of why cybersecurity education and awareness is so important. A reoccurring theme of this course is that cybersecurity awareness is everyone's responsibility especially along the entire value chain.
