Modern Cyber Security Technologies for Senior Managers (SkillsFuture Series)

Event Navigation

This course updates senior cyber security professionals in an urgent and compact manner on all key cyber security developments, e.g. how the landscape has changed very quickly and which would be the best solution to attack the many “hot” and pressing problems that the organisation is now facing. By making sense of new trends and attack incidents that often appear confusing, it creates Eureka moments to resolve conflicting requirements with urgent deadlines via a methodology that makes the complex easy to understand. More importantly, it explains how the implementation strategy could be quickly internalised, communicated and then converted into fast action. Its powerful narrations will highlight the new types of cyber security opportunities, exposing many such well kept secrets. Interestingly, many are with almost no cost. A key take-away will be its comprehensive coverage of all strategic transformations in the cyber security industry today, e.g. the need for automation, non-signature defences, the rise of cloud security and Docker containers, big data security, mobile security, new cryptography and new hardware like Intel’s security instruction sets and GPUs.

Programme Benefits
The course addresses continual learning and the shortfall in knowledge and experience regarding latest developments, as many busy executives have been struggling to keep up with new solutions and the high complexity of today’s digital revolution. Critically, it provides key insights and advice for practical and much needed problem solving, which will build up confidence for decision making. This will  protect the organisation from the menace of organised cyber crime and advanced state attackers, avoiding massive losses or even company closure when successfully attacked (no longer if, but just when). By providing guidance on the latest or pending future products, a large part of the cyber security expenditure will be saved or the money will be better spent. In addition, it helps the student to communicate the urgency required, not only when in crisis but also in everyday planning.
