About the programme

In today’s landscape of escalating cyber crime, mitigating cyber risk is not the Chief Information Security Officer’s responsibility alone — it is everyone’s job.

Getting ahead of hackers and other security risks requires the active engagement of non-technical management, as well as an overall commitment to building a cyber security culture within your organisation.

This programme provides CEOs, Directors and Non-Executive Directors with frameworks and best practices for managing cyber security-related risk, separate from the specialised IT infrastructure typically associated with this topic. Course content includes lectures, highly interactive discussions, and case studies related to:

  • Cyber Security awareness
  • Non-tech leader’s role in cyber security management
  • Actionable ideas to increase your organisation’s cyber resilience.
  • Measuring your organisation’s cyber-safety level- and how this changes over time
  • How to speak the language of cyber security to enable informed conversations with your technology teams and colleagues, and ensure your organisation is as cyber secure as possible
  • Legal Advice and guidance on cyber attacks
  • What is in your cyber incident response plan

Eddie Hawthorne, Managing Director of Arnold Clark will be a guest speaker. Attendees can expect a thoughtful and informative session as Eddie shares his insights and experiences, including how he guided the company through their cyber crisis and the aftermath, while also ensuring resilience in a competitive market.

Our next open Cyber Executive Education Sessions are:
