Leading Security in Complex Organizations

A recent study published two interesting facts:

  1. 85% of board members [surveyed] believe that IT and security executives need to improve the way they report to the board.
  2. 59% of Board members [surveyed] say that one or more IT security executive will lose their job as a result of failing to provide useful, actionable information.
This course prepares new student leaders to communicate effectively to senior leaders and Board members on matters such as; IT security metrics and requirements, security risk management and data privacy topics, IT policy and regulatory matters. Student leaders will develop and practice skills necessary to report and elicit budget and financial impact on plans and department, qualitatively and quantitatively characterize and report upon risk and security metrics, and develop written and oral presentation skills.
