The Cybersecurity for Business Executives classroom-based course provides awareness level training specifically to the owners, C-suite executives, and upper management of private sector businesses. The course will provide information on the cybersecurity threats, regulations, and impacts a business is exposed to in today’s interconnected operations. Discussions are focused on providing a better understanding of the risks involved and actions to help manage and mitigate those risks. The course will provide guidance outlining the protective measures needed to reduce the vulnerability to malicious attacks and threats.
There are no prerequisites for this course.

This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
