The workshop provides foundational and advanced knowledge in cybersecurity and cyber resilience. This includes the identification and defense against cyber crime as well as understanding and using relevant laws, standards and frameworks. The workshop demonstrates how to create C-level awareness and convert it into pragmatic strategies. This also covers successful planning and budgeting. In addition, successfully interacting with audit, external reviewers and supervisory authorities will be covered in detail. Topics include:

  • Foundations and the line between cybersecurity and traditional information security
  • Risks and threats, characteristics of cyber attacks
  • Typical frameworks and standards in cybersecurity
  • Interfaces to governance, risk management and compliance in organizations
  • Legal and regulatory requirements
  • Practical build-up: organization, processes, technology
  • Outsourcing: security as a service, efficient and effective use of relevant services and vendors
  • Incident and crisis management, dealing with attack scenarios
  • Forensics, securing evidence and successfully asserting claims
  • Awareness building
  • Continuous improvement and optimization models

The workshop is designed for experienced practitioners with current or future managerial responsibility. In contrast to more technical courses, it primarily addresses aspects of strategic planning and implementation as well as successful leadership. Attendees should therefore be familiar with the following aspects:

  • Extensive practical experience in traditional information security
  • Foundational knowledge / experience with governance, risk management and compliance
  • Foundational knowledge in legal matters is an advantage
  • Practical experience with audit and other reviews is an advantage
  • Business management experience is an advantage

The 2-day Online Workshops are held once per month on two consecutive evenings (19.00-22.00 each). 

Please note, that the normal language for the course is German, however upon request the workshops can be given in English.
