Cybersecurity Innovations for Businesses

Course Overview

The COVID-19 crisis brought a cyber pandemic. As digital transformation accelerates, the number of various cyber incidents increased exponentially. According to PR Newswire, there was 4,000 cyberattacks a day since Covid-19 pandemic. And tackling cyber incidents became a top concern for businesses and caused the global cost of cybercrime to rise to $6 trillion USD by the end of 2021. 

The pandemic has forced organizations to de-risk and adapt to the new normal. Organizations must look at their security strategy implementation holistically to determine if they have the right framework, policy and training in place to leverage those technologies to best secure their information.

This series aims to empower participants from all industries with the fundamental knowledge of cyber security for them to conduct a thorough evaluation of pandemic-driven IT and cybersecurity changes, and to make strategic adjustments in terms of enterprise architectures, cybersecurity controls, and business processes based on long-term operating strategies.
