About the course

When it comes to cyber security, a perfect storm is brewing as the threat landscape continues to evolve faster than ever, fuelled by innovation, automation and the drive to the cloud. This is compounded by a cyber skill shortage and the growing reputational, financial and legal implications of a cyber breach for company directors and executives.

About this course

This course is a collaboration between UTS and ITIC.

Cybersecurity awareness is vital for directors and executives from the board level, down. This course provides the relevant commercial and technical framework and mindset that organisations need to navigate complexities and achieve optimal returns on their investments in people, processes and systems.

Course structure

This course covers three key areas:

  • A concise, high-level understanding of regulation and compliance issues and personal liability for company directors
  • Risk evaluation and management framework to support development of responses commensurate to the level of cybersecurity threat
  • Shifting the cyber strategy mindset from compliance/limitation of legal liability towards maximising the efficacy of cyber security investments.

Learning outcomes

  • Working knowledge of relevant cybersecurity legislation for board directors
  • A basic risk management framework to evaluable cybersecurity investment
  • A mindset towards cybersecurity that looks at maximising the efficacy of cybersecurity
