Cyber Management

With data breaches costing U.S. companies an average of $3.9 million in 2019, it’s no wonder 79 percent of respondents to the Marsh and Microsoft 2019 Global Cyber Risk Perception Survey ranked cyber risk as one of the top five concerns of their organization. Managing risk is just one of the many aspects of an organization’s cybersecurity strategy. Now more than ever, organizations need capable leaders with strong cybersecurity skills to make informed decisions.  

Created for professionals looking to move into management, or for those already in management, our Cyber Management pathway prepares you to lead the way in protecting your organization’s data, networks, and infrastructure. Expand your skillset to tackle the ever-changing technical landscape.  Learn how to recognize various types of threats and vulnerabilities.
