The Managing and Planning your Cyber Security Risks three-day training course will focus on how this security issue has become one of the most pressing concerns facing organisations, governments and national security. Cyber-attacks and malware infections are increasing, both in their number and capacity to inflict serious operational damage. The UK Government’s National Security Strategy ranked cybersecurity as a tier-one national security priority and risk. During the training, we will be evaluating how your organisation approaches cybersecurity. We will also explore best practice, risk assessment and creating a plan for cybersecurity issues.

This course has been designed for leaders: directors, managers and consultants, who seek the knowledge that will help them develop a tailored cybersecurity plan for their organisation or improve an existing one. It goes beyond the technical solutions and presents cybersecurity as a strategic risk management challenge, with an impact at technical, organisational and governance levels

Digital developments present huge opportunities to organisations, but this also brings new risk and threats.  As your business becomes increasingly dependent on online technology, it is exposed to cybersecurity threats that can be hugely disruptive and damaging to operations. This relevant and current course will provide you with the tools and techniques to plan for the risk of cybersecurity threats, and help you prepare a team equipped to respond to a threat. Threats emanate from a wide range of sources, including foreign governments, organised activists, individual hackers and those engaged in industrial espionage. Cybersecurity is now a multiple billion-dollar global business, fundamental to which is the need for business to be continually aware of new threats and anticipate negative outcomes and externalities. LSPR’s practical course will highlight the importance of cybersecurity to those organisations who may not have previously considered this complex issue in detail and ensure that they protect their data and wealth-creating intangible assets
