The cost of the average cybersecurity breach has been estimated at almost 4 million dollars. Securing the assets of organisations is fast becoming a global imperative for businesses and organisations. There is a need for leaders in all industries who can ask the right questions around matters pertaining to cybersecurity, and help defend against the threat posed by cybercrime.

What will I learn?

  • Understand how hackers get in: the mindset of the attacker and the anatomy of a cyberattack.
  • Communicate effectively with internal and external stakeholders as a leader.
  • Develop a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy for your organisation that employs risk mitigation strategies.
  • Propose strategies to protect critical data assets, while assessing their vulnerability to attack.
  • Analyse a cyberattack.

What will I get?

  • You will be eligible for a Certificate of Participation upon completing the course content and collaborating with your peers.
  • If you choose to complete the final project, you will also be eligible for a Certificate of Completion. Your final project will get you to apply the skills and knowledge acquired to your own professional context – ensuring that you translate your learning to clear value for your organisation.

How will I learn?

We recommend you allocate between 4–6 hours of weekly study per micro unit. Deciding when you fit in your weekly study is flexible, as there are no set times required for you to be online. Your industry expert facilitator will guide you through your engagement with the course content, equipping you with practical skills immediately applicable to your professional context.
