According to the 2017 Cost of a Data Breach Study: Global Overview, the average cost of a data breach is £2.7M. In fact, 72% of businesses that suffer major data loss shut down within 24 months. Are you prepared to pay that price?

Organisations are under increasing pressure to demonstrate that they are managing threats, and that they have effective processes and controls in place to detect, respond to, mitigate, and recover from cybersecurity events. You’re in the position to look at cybersecurity from a risk management and finance point of view. That means you must speak intelligently on the subject internally and externally. You need to know and ask the appropriate questions. You have to apply the security mind-set to your daily work. And you should understand the potential risks and opportunities for your organisation as you develop a cybersecurity risk management program.

Led by Chris Romeo, a cybersecurity expert, the webcasts cover the importance and impact of cybersecurity risks on your organisation. This certificate will help you build a foundation toward becoming a strategic business partner. This three-part webcast series airs over three days, starting with the date you select. Each webcast starts at the same time each day and the duration and dates will be presented after purchase.
