Managing Risk in a Digital World

Course Overview

Data is the indispensable asset that makes your business function, yet it is incredibly intangible. Data can be stolen, corrupted, blocked. Do you need to understand this core business risk? Many people consider information security to be a moving target, without a precise definition of what good security looks like. Perfect security is probably not realistic. How can we reliably make sense of digital risks, get behind the technology, fit this in to an ERM perspective? How can we be sure we have this threat under appropriate control, working as a team?

This course gets people thinking about what makes for good management of our digital risks across the organisation.
