The goal of cybersecurity is to identify cyber risks and reduce them to an acceptable level. From a strategic view, an organization’s cybersecurity program and cyber risk management has to fulfill five core functions. There have to be processes to identify cyber risks, a deployment of safeguards and detection capabilities, as well as organizational and technical measures to respond and recover from a cyber incident.
This course covers the relevant standards, frameworks and best practices to establish a cyber risk management program from a technical, governance, and legal perspective. The lecture is accompanied by a semester-long case study, where you identify and evaluate the cyber risk for an organization, and develop a customized cybersecurity program to treat them.
