Technology has fundamentally transformed the way we do business, allowing companies to drive profitability and information management. As the value of data has increased, so has the need to build processes and infrastructure to protect that data. Understanding, preventing, and managing these new cyber risks is now paramount to firms' ongoing viability. However, IT leaders cannot successfully mitigate cyber risks on their own--for solutions to be effective at an enterprise level, business leaders also must actively engage in the discussions and make informed decisions within their units and functions.


Functional area and enterprise-wise leaders who manage or oversee systems (e.g. financial, marketing, supply chain) and need to understand the security risks associated with their current and future systems--including integrations with other systems.

*Please note that this course is not intended for architects or developers of security solutions.
